Taco Bout it Tuesday (Wendsday?) #2: Why Historical Fictions are so Stinkin’ Time Consuming

So sorry., I completely forgot about Taco Bout It Tuesday.. Fourth of July is extremely time consuming. ๐Ÿ˜Š Today is…

Why Historical Fictions are so Time Consuming!

The reason it is so time spconsuming is all that reasearch! This taco bout it Tuesday is all about reasearch, and how to do it!

First, I will be sharing some of my favorite research recourses.

                                                                                         

  NOTE: While searching online, inappropriate words or images may come up. Turn the ‘Safe Search’ to strict and have an adult with you at all times while browsing the internet.                     

                                                                                        ๐ŸŒฎ 

GOOGLE

https://google.com

Honestly, whenever I need to know what a Whirlgig is or when I need to know popular names for German girls in the 1900s, I turn to google. It’s you just type in a few keywords, and it will give you many different tabs to browse those keywords: all, images, videos, shopping, personal, flights, and so much more. There are so many articles out there that google can connect to you. If you are writing a historical fiction, you can just type in your era and have millions of search results relating to it.

                                                                                   ๐ŸŒฎ 

THE LIBRARY

           

Guys, the library is the best place to go. I mean it’s got books on how to write a book. #awesome just ask a librarian and they’ll willingly show you history books, biographies, anything you can  imagine.

                                                                                                           ๐ŸŒฎ 

BING

https://www.bing.com

I like bing because it’s personal, and customizable. Sometimes it’ll even play music! Here I typed in ‘1700s’ into bing.


It shows you timelines, images, and definitions, perfect for using in your historical Fictions.

WHAT IS A HISTORICAL FICTION?


^

When writing a Historical Fiction, pick a time period first and do some reasearch with one of the resources listed above (by typing in the era). Then you can build your characters and plot on the events that happened in that time period.

Taco Bout It Tuesday #1!!

Eeek! It’s here! Welcome everyone, to The First Edition of Taco Tuesday: First Person vs. Thirds  Person!

First, Let’s Start With the Supercalifragilisticexpislidociously Awesome Third Person!

Well, maybe we should start with FIRST person. I mean, it says first, right?

First Person: Right you are, Emmie, I said.

Me: Waiiiiittt. What about secound person?

Third Person: Is that even a real thing?, she thought. 

First Person: think there is another one where the story is addressed to YOU.

Third Person: Well, vs only can have two people, she said.

Me: Ummm okey dokey. So who’s going First?

First Person: MeMeMeI’m first person, after all.

Me: okay then. Let’s get started! 

First Person: We already started. 

Me: Whatevah. 

                                                                         ๐ŸŒฎ

First Person 

The Pros:

  • Ultimately used in Diary-Formatted novels. 
  • Helps add humor and interest to tHe story.
  • Helps the reader see the story through ‘I’s’ eyes. 
  • mostly paired with the present Tense.

The Cons:

  • It’s not as awesome as third.
  •  Everything you talk about in the story must be from the outlook of the character. (E.g. If you are telling the story through a grumpy character, then your whole narritation will be uber negative.)
  • Everything must be noticed by the character. (E.g. If you say ‘When I wasn’t looking,…’ it will make zero sense. Questions will zip through the reader’s mind. How does he/she know what is happening when he/she is not looking? Does he/she have eyes on the back of his/her head?)
  • We like to stay positive here at The Realm of Writing, so it’s time to โœ‹ with the cons. 

                                                                          ๐ŸŒฎ

The Amazing Third Person

The Pros:

  • It is genuinely easier to write prologues and epilogues with.
  • Adds a tone of mysteriousness and fantasy.
  • Commonly paired with the past Tense.
  • Adds sort of a narrator character. 
  • Wideley used in poems.
  • The oldest persective. 
  • The Bible is in this perspective.

The Cons:

  • Sort of serious and not very humorous. Well duh it’s not I said it was serious
  • Cannot be used in the diary format. 
  • Man it’s hard finding bad things about third

The Ultimatley Ultimate Showdown

First Person:

I grasp for the next rock. My hands are sore and scraped. My lungs are going to burst. I fumble around blindly for a tree root that might happen to be growing out of the cliff at arms reach. I see a thick branch poking out of the side of the cliff. Perfect, I think as I reach out to grab the root.

 My am slips and suddenly I am plummeting down the side of a 200 ft cliff to my doom.

Third Person

She grasps for the next rock. Her hands are sore and scraped. Her lungs feel like they are going to burst. She fumbles around blindly for a tree root that might happen to be growing out of the cliff at arms reach. She sees a thick branch poking out of the side of the cliff. Perfect, she thinks as she reaches out to grab the root. 

Her arm slips and suddenly Lavender is plummeting down the side of a 200 ft cliff to her doom.
