Historical Hunks & Kick-Ass Heroines: Characterization in Historicals

I'm looking forward to those myself. Lyn will be tackling the subject of characterization on Thursday and Delilah is sharing some wonderful stuff with us on Friday about sex through the ages. It should be a lot of fun and very informational.

Hi Ladies,
I'm Catherine Bybee, a frequent flyer here at CTR. I write time travel as well, with a Scottish flair. I tend to write on the paranormal side of life. So, when my characters slip through time there is a magical reason for it.

Werewolves in a contemporary setting is also something I've written in the last year.

Background... Well, I'm waiting patiently ( banging head on desk daily when my in-box is empty ) for two different publishers to finish reviewing several manuscripts. My full lenght time travel is undergoing mechanical fixes before I re-submit to TWRP. I've also written a full length Regency historical that is currently taking up space on my hard drive but that I haven't sub'd anywhere yet. I really want to make sure that my Lords and Ladies are titled correctly and that I'm not making any 'American' errors. grin.

Hello all. I am fairly new to this whole process and the online format of the seminar intrigued me to no end. That said, I have 3 wips and a new time travel ancient MesoAmerican concept that awoke me this morning.

I expect to float through several of the threads, perhaps observing more than interacting. I am looking forward to this week and the ideas being shared here.

Places of reference I think. I'd like to know of a few shortcuts for both midevil Scotland and Regency period London. At least in the research department. Because my time travels usually have a character or two from the 21st century I tend to over look and under use period language I wonder if that is a big NO-NO? If I'm reading a book and I trip over the words too often, I put it down. Or at the very least skip over large bits to 'get to the point'.

I think Lyn or Delilah can provide you with some shortcuts when we talk about research later this week. I tend to work in ancient history (Rome, Egypt, etc.). That's a great question about language. Honestly, I think the answer is you have to keep your readers engaged, so language is very important. You can lose someone if you're writing like Shakespeare, especially when you're mixing eras. However, you don't want your historical characters talking too modern either. I think Lyn has some stuff on this later this week.

Hi, Kelly - Are these modern day vampires or historical? I've talked to a couple of paranormal writers who realize that this genre is very close to historical romance since you have to do research about your characters who usually are quite old. Is that true for you, as well?

Minnette

Hi Amanda,

Hopefully we will give you insight into writing historicals. I love the genre, and we all started out where you are right now. http://www.coffeetimeromance.com/board/images/icons/xwritersblock.gif It's a great process so enjoy the moment of creation.

I will be going over this later on in the week. But the idea of how much historical language to add is a great debate amongst many. Some like a lot, while others say it ruins the pace and confuses the reader. I joined the cast of the Florida Renainssance Festival to learn olde English fluently . As a street character, I was to engage patrons with improvisation on any given topic and remain in character at all times. This is a lot harder than you think. But it gave me insight on how to talk in olde English and still be understood. Feel free to ask me any questions. :rolleyes:

Hello to all,
Thanks for offering this class. I am here for the learning process.
The titles that caught my eye were the Tips and Tricks and Making Research Fast and Fun. To me, historical romances are the hardest to write because of the accuracy of detail required. Hence (Eliza) the reason for taking your course on the Tudors and this one :-) Julie

Mennette, I Loooove research. Oh, I have to say the other title that caught my eye was the "and Witches" in larger font. So, that word followed by "Writing Historical Romances" were just tied in together for me, along with "Creating Worlds." So maybe if I can learn some basic, objective How-To's, I won't get so bogged down in my own worlds. Julie

Perfect - Lyn writes about Celtic witches and warlocks, I write about Roman soldiers, Celtic queens and gladiators, and Delilah writes about 19th century schools of pleasure. Should be a very good cross section for you ~LOL~ :)

Evening. I found out about this workshop and thought it would be interesting to take and learn. I've tried my hand (actually fingers on a keyboard) at paranormal but fell into historical kind of by accident. It a short and coming out next year. My first. Woohoo. I've found writing historicals more fun then paranormals. And it's not so much the research. It's being able to bring a piece of history alive. Currently, I've got several historical shorts either submitted to different publishers or in the process of being written or plotted.
Yes, I multitask

Click on that.
Then scroll down to the different titles (threads).
You can click on any of them that interest you.

Thanks for the welcome Lyn. I am not usually up so early myself, but couldn't sleep this morning. Sighs.

Thanks again for The Last Celtic Witch. Can't wait to read it!

Hello. My names Rob Graham and I have e-books out from Phaze and Aspen Mountain Press.

I'll write anything if I get a good idea for it. Probably won't ever do an inspirational though. I'm not the least religious. Although I am working on a story about a fundamentalist preacher who gets to meet the Deity he really worships. :devil:

So far my published works consist of an anthology of vampire stories, a short piece of BDSM smut, a BDSM romance and a collection of contemporary romances.

I just started a piece with another author; a vampire historical romance set in 1788 London. I'm writing the hero's parts. She's writing the heroine's. :biggrin:

I will be drawing my prize, The Celtic Witch & the Sorcerer ebook, in about ten minutes. If anyone wants to still enter, you should have enough time to answer the question in the prizes section.

Good Luck!

Guys, I'm late introducing myself. Sorry. I've just learned how to navigate the forum a bit.

I'm a newly published author with Freya's Bower and I look forward to two releases this fall. One, in the One Touch, One Glance, Sweet Anthology and another in the In the Gloaming Anthology. The first is just a sweet romance, the second is sort of magical realism, both contemporary. I'd love to learn to write historical and why I'm here. That's where my heart is.
