Creativity and imagination are essential tools for a writer. They’re the source of our stories, our characters, and plots. Imagination provides the answers to the constant “What ifs?” and “What’s next?”, and “What would this character do in this situation?”

ost stories are more realistic if written from experience. The problem arises when you’re writing historical fiction and weren’t ¬¬there to experience the history. I’m currently writing a historical fiction novel involving the air war over Europe during the Second World War (1939-1945). I wasn’t alive at the time. Fortunately, one of the planes I’m writing about, a B-17 Flying Fortress, still

There were a million things I could blog about this month. There is so much going on in the world. Unfortunately, it is mostly negative, and I’m not in the mood. The high-school students protesting for gun control is admirable, but naïve. At least they put down the phones for a while. The part I found ironic is that while many are demanding gun control for their safety, a large number of teenagers are making threats to shoot-up their schools.

I couldn’t think of a generic, family-friendly blog this month. Instead, I’m doing a usual, and writing about something in the news I find annoying. Since you’ll probably find my views irritating as well, you might want to skip to the final line.

I recently learned that fans of the show Games of Thrones were rushing to buy Siberian Huskies, because they looked like some kind of wolf on the show. Knowing the vanity of people and their insane desire to be part of the fantasy of their TV world rather than face their own reality, I believed this story. I’ve never seen the show, but my son says it’s popular.
