You’re looking for historical fiction ideas, and most of the ones you’ve come across are either too detailed and specific or too vague — at least for you.
History writing prompts should paint enough of a picture to allow you to fill in the gaps as you step into it and look around.
Your own perspective and the connections that form in your mind will take that partial image and complete it.
We kept that in mind while creating this list of 51 writing prompts for your novel. May each one flood your mind with the possibilities.
