Writing Song of the Day: “Check it Out” by Nicki Minaj featuring Will.I.Am
Seriously ladies at YA Highway…did you ransack my laptop and read my manuscript In Limbo when forming this week’s Road Trip Wednesday question??? It really seems like it 🙂 Yep, you guessed it- it’s that time of the week again to road trip with YA Highway and this week they want to know what time period we would travel to for research if we could go back in history.
Well, I am a history teacher on the side so this is an easy enough question for me…but then it’s hard to choose! I heart studying Ancient Rome, Greece, the Civil War, and World War II- but would I want to experience any of this stuff? Uh…no.
So, I guess it makes sense to stick with the time period of my manuscript that I finished over the summer. In Limbo is set during 1918- at the tail end of World War One and when Spanish Influenza started to ransack American cities (especially Philadelphia where my novel is set). I would want to experience how normal every day things worked-like toilets, telephones, refrigerators, transportation. I can research all of that but it would be way cooler to actually be there.
We are so excited to hear where the rest of you would like to visit- who knows it might end up in my next WIP 🙂
