The Genre Of Historical Fiction Is Explored In Captivate Audiences To Create Loyal Fans

My friend Sheila Bali wrote an essay in Captivate Audiences To Create Loyal Fans titled, “How History Leads to Historical Fiction.” She is working on Swans and Cranes about a woman who travels to her homeland to revisit scenes of her lost youth cut short by the harrowing 1956 Hungarian Revolution.

Bali states, “But I understand now why historians cringe at the release of a historical novel: sometimes historical fiction produces historical distortion.”

I agree with Bali that the historical novelist “takes the reader to the doorstep of history” and writes about people, how they survived in amazing conditions and what they discovered. Sensory details such as sounds of tanks and shaking houses contribute to a successful experience of an historical event.

I’ve learned to appreciate history now that I’m older. In college it was my least favorite subject. Even the dreaded math classes seemed more interesting to me. The fact-infested text included too many dates and not enough feeling for the times and the people in my opinion. Historical novelists make the past real and memorable.

Successful speakers use the same idea when telling their life experiences that relate to the topic of their presentations. Describing a scene with sensory details help the audience live it. When people live it, they bond with the teller, and become a loyal fan.

A Free 5 Day Challenge To Complete A Project Is Scheduled for August 2017

I’m creating a FREE 5 day challenge to complete a project. The formula will be useful for future endeavors as well.

Those of you who have to deal with time passing while a project still sits on your shoulders, this challenge is designed for you.

I have the hands-on days’ trainings ready to go. Now I’m learning how to set the challenge up in an exclusive Facebook group. Tamara Monosoff’s BeLive video challenge coming up next week will give me practice for the five videos that I’m including in my Complete a Project Challenge.

I’d appreciate more comments about what problems you want to solve. It’s not too late for me to add possible applications.

See you soon. . .LIVE!

If you had a free opportunity to get a project done by joining a 5 Day Challenge, what problems would you want solved during that time?

As you think specifically about your project. . . name it, then look at it in your imagination, and determine what is the obstacle.
