2015 A to Z Challenge: K is for KINGS, QUEENS AND OTHER FAMOUS PEOPLE

A-Z Challenge 2015Some writers prefer not to mention famous people. They write about the unknown people. That way, the characters are formed purely by imagination… and knowledge about how people were and how they behaved at that time and in that place.

Others purposely write about famous people. They leave themselves more open to criticism, because they can’t always stick to the truth, but we’d be poorer without their stories.

Sometimes it’s hard to work on my alternative history, one of my WIPs, knowing almost all of these people were murdered in real life and didn’t have these miraculous last-minute rescues, a return to power, long lives, and happy endings.

Apart from this WIP, the premise of which compelled me to create it, I only write about fictional people. If real-life historical figures do show up, they’re not as main characters, but just players in a real-life historical scene in which my fictional characters are also taking part.
