Patti Gauch said that what makes a good fantasy is the details...You must embed real world details in your fantasy to make it believable. I've been thinking about this a lot, as I'm writing a mg hf novel. Today, as I was searching (frantically) for a speech given by Winston Churchill on September 9, 1940 and I discovered a wonderful site: The Quotation Page. If you need to quote someone to give your novel some real world details this is a great place to find that quote. I couldn't find any radio speeches given during the time period I was looking for (I guess they were busy with The War), but I did find a wonderful quote from Winston Churchill:
“…One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half.”
Do you have a TIP FOR TUESDAY to share?
