We’re nearing the end of September and Fall is definitely in the air. If you’re planning on taking part in National Novel Writing Month in November then you may need to make a decision about just what subject you plan on writing about.
As you all know, I’m a history buff and love historical novels – writing as well as reading them. One answer to the question “What should I write about?” is to look for historical anniversaries. We are currently at the beginning of the American Civil War Sesquicentennial. We are also approaching the Centennial of World War I.
April of 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic.
May 2012 is the 75th anniversary of the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California.
These can get you started.
