  1. Suddenly realised I was never going to get to you if I worked my way down the sign-up list!

    This is a great post – and its key to my Princelings series as time goes on. 🙂

    1. It’s a long list. But it’s fun to hack away at.

    Hi J – the rules and regulations that apply can and will alter and affect the setting .. we need to learn about and how they might have affected times of yore ..

    Cheers Hilary

    1. Indeed!

  2. So much to consider when you first lift that pen or set your fingers on the keyboard. Rules people live under is another great area to keep in mind.

    1. Yes indeed!

  3. There are so many things to think of when writing fiction – I think the hardest thing I ever had to write was a sci-fi assignment on the writing MA I did. Tricky as you have to have the entire world and its premise in your head! Glad I’m a poet! ~Liz http://www.lizbrownleepoet.com

    1. Oh yes- creating a whole world is a real challenge. I, personally, am one of those crazy writers who LOVES it!

  4. Excellent point and advice. You don’t have to write science fiction or historical novels to appreciate your advice. We need to understand the laws and cultures of the places we choose as our settings. I liked your Texas example. Funny. Texas has some very different laws than most states. Louisiana is another state that has off the wall laws. Our laws stem from the Napoleonic Code and not common law like all the other states. Great article and very helpful.

    1. That’s true! It was a state that was owned by the French for far longer than people seem to remember.

  5. I used to practice law, so the law part of writing fiction is easy for me. My characters also seem to live in very rule-based worlds, which is probably that influence as well.

    1. I’m sure there are several writers who would love your legal input on writing matters. Somehow, asking “exactly how illegal is this” tends to get non-writer lawyers looking at us funny.
