Gail Ingis | Fashion, Costumes, and Research

Instagramtwitterpinterestfacebookblog

I love doing my blog. I have invited some of my fellow historic SMP writers for interviews. The response to my invite was encouraging. I also invite my Connecticut Chapter of Romance Writer’s (CTRWA) of America writers. Without my CTRWA group, I wouldn’t even be here. They are amazing. One of our writers won the Rita Award this year. We have quite a chapter in Connecticut.

Hi, Writers—

How much time do you spend on research for your story? It isn’t only history that gets researched, but personality traits, character names, location, travel—the list is long. There are lots of pieces to the puzzle. Once you find all the pieces, then you have to know how to put the puzzle together. It takes some ingenuity. Did you know that fashions of the years before 1900 were referred to as costumes? And that they were bulky, cumbersome, torturous, hot . . .

Cheers,
Gail
