Update on the Revisions

I am up to Chapter Nine on the historical novel in making revisions. I’m adding more descriptors and making it more historical- I was afraid on the first drafts to make it too history oriented but it seems I may have been too trusting of the reader’s knowledge of the time period. So, I’m adding more detail of 1920. 

I haven’t gotten the characters off the ship yet on the revisions but when I do, I’ll add more description of the NY Harbor of the era. I’ll talk more about the Statue of Liberty and  how the heroine sees the wharf and surrounding city.  I also plan more detail on her trip to Chicago and how that city looked at the time.  I had thought this might be boring for the reader, but it seems the editor that asked for the revisions wants that info in there. And I’m happy to do it. I love the era and have a ton of knowledge in the ole bean about it.  Just hope I’m not going overboard the other way now!  Dilemmas!

Chicago, circa 1920


  1. Wow! You’re making LOTS of progress!!! Way to go! I can’t wait to read the historical details and all! I think your additions will only enhance what you’ve already written. LOVE this story!!!! Keep up the good work!!!!

  2. Keep at it! Unfortunately, 1920’s is considered modern history and most people never get that far in their history classes if they even pay attention. If you’re able to make the descriptions informative but gripping, you have the chance to teach people as well as keep them entertained! It’s a great chance to share your love of the era 🙂

    • Thanks Danica. I hope it’s good!
