Writing Quirks 3


Short answer: No, this isn’t historically accurate, but dang if we didn’t wish it were.

Long answer: For historical pieces in particular, the more accurate it is, the richer the story can be. Don’t be afraid to take creative liberties, though, especially if that’s partially the point; for example, if you’re writing a what-if story. Don’t get too carried away in either direction, and it’ll all work out in time.
