I Just Couldn't

Couldn’t what, you ask? Well, you’ll have to go over and read a post I wrote for Rhemalda Publishing’s blog. I expound on the reason why I chose the post-Emancipation year, 1867, to set a portion of my novel, Uncharted. It has to do with slavery, and why I couldn’t  make Captain William Wesley a slave trader.

  2. Great post at Rhemalda. Coincidentally, one of my novels deals with slavery in the Carolinas and how the people in it react to the atrocities. If I do say so myself, it's an interesting read. (Richard and Amanda THE CAPTAIN'S LADY.)

  3. Very interesting thoughts about writing and protecting yourself from things you do not feel comfortable writing about. I respect that a lot. I think we have to draw our own boundaries and stick to them. Thanks for the interesting thoughts, and for leading me to a fascinating story that had me clicking around for a long time to find out more!

    1. Believe it or not, Lisa, I start writing about lots of uncomfortable things, but there's comfort in knowing where the delete key is. I'm glad you found my ramblings interesting...I thought that letter from Jourdan Anderson wast especially noteworthy in any case!
