I'm starting a new book which means I have a whole new piece of history to explore. In this case, it's actually more than one piece of history - at least I think so.
Which means I have lots of eras to get familiar with. And multiple characters to live in those eras. People who will go through immigration, deportation, war, and I don't know what all. I have only the vaguest idea of what will happen or what really did happen in the history behind this story.
I have a concept but no real certainty that I can pull it off. I have 3 DVDs and 4 books to get me started on research. I have the internet. And dreams of travel.
I have 6 lines. I think they are rather beautiful.
I feel very rich.
And as hopeful as an immigrant moving to a new land.
