Developing a Novel from Family History Research
The blog, From Story to Book, follows my thoughts and feelings as I undertook the amazing journey of writing a novel inspired by my family history.
When I started I didn’t think I would get very far, but now the story is complete!!
Prior to starting my family history research, I had never considered writing a book, let alone a series of books. As I uncovered more details of an incredible past, however, I couldn’t get the story out of my mind. By 2014, I realised the book was turning out better than I imagined and so I started the blog.
The posts chart my fears about writing and shares lessons I’ve learned on the art of creative writing and editing. It also shows why I chose to self-publish, something I don’t regret for one minute.
Why not take a look at my journey?
Maybe it will inspire you too!
