Besides the fact I thought the template was pretty, I thought it would be a nice place for historical writers to gather. Writing the historical romance is different from other types of writing. While we are able to exploit the wide range of historical material and add that richness to our stories, our heroes and heroines must play by different rules. Their goals and motivations differ from their contemporary counterparts. I thought it would be fun to have a place where others can vent about their struggles or find answers to specific questions. We can gather support for our endeavors and share information with each other.
