About My Story. . .

Postby wheelygirl58 » Thu Sep 18, 2014 10:09 pm

it's the highly fictionalized story about the events after my mom gave birth to her first child, my half sister, Becky. The true part of the story is that my mom did get accused of being an unfit mother because of her alcoholism. I'm sort of exploding the story from that point on, adding a cocaine addict who also is hearing a dead man, related to my mom. A great deal drama, overall.
I had forgot to state that the story's time period is the early 1940's--or I'm hoping to have it in that era!!
Any one have ideas on how to begin researching for this? I know of the obvious--WW2, both European & Pacific threatres, a few other items related to my story's locale. I'd like more details, such as how did women speak to each other? I truly don't want 21st century slang popping in unannounced, ya know? :lol:
:thankssign to all, in advance!!

I think you'll be able to put a lot of passion into the story because of your personal experience. Best wishes with your story!

:superhappy :party I am so happy--ain't obvious? Let me preface this in stating I had been using Sarah Dumet's "90 Days to your Novel" for what seems to be ages, (actually since late last summer as a library book; I've owned a copy since about January) I finally have gotten to the point of outlining my story!! This is the reason for my small crowd of happy emoties! Above all, of course, I am praising our Lord, 'cuz He is the reason I'm writing this story [and hopefully more to follow]!

I hope these links help. I assume your book is based in America. It appears the early 1940's is a major turning point for women in America, so I'm sure your story will be quite intriguing.

Watching films from the 1940s is also highly recommended.
