One of my current works in progress is an interactive ebook for middle grades: Marco Polo.
This dude was an amazing explorer and I’m finding it a challenge on how to squeeze all his amazing adventures into one 35,000 word (or so) volume.
The stage I’m at right now is the outline stage.
Then will come the tons and tons of research to insert links into the text.
And then I will finally get to write the story.
But even as I write it, I’ll be researching as I go. Learning interesting little details. It’s the details that fascinate me. Such as the food, the customs, the attire.
What about history fascinates you the most?
