I fell in love with historical romances and all things Regency—and especially all those dashing Regency heroes—while living in England, where I spent most of my time studying the Romantic poets, reading Jane Austen, and getting lost all over the English countryside.

When I read my first Regency romance in 2012, I was hooked and longed to create my own independent and spirited heroines and dashing heroes. The best part of writing historical romances is falling into history—to live in the world of Regency England through my characters, with dazzling balls, beautiful dresses, and gorgeous houses that I would otherwise never be able to experience. I love the period’s rich history and find that all those rules of etiquette and propriety can be wo

Hi, Cintia,
Oh, I'm so sorry. Writer's block is so terrible! What I do to break out of it is to approach writing as play--try writing in a new place, if I normally write on a computer then I try writing it out by hand, I will try writing a famous scene (from like a Jane Austen novel) from a weird POV like the cat in the room, or I completely switch genres and try something completely different just to get the brain juices flowing. And don't forget--nobody said you had to start at the beginning. I once heard that Margaret Mitchell wrote the last chapter of Gone with the Wind first. I'm not certain if that's true, but what a great way to try to shake things up. Whatever you do, don't give up! Just try new things, and if nothing else, you've had some great life experiences to write about eventually.(less)

Writers all need to practice more, take risks with their writing style, word choice, characters, etc. and push their comfort zones. Even if you don't end up publishing anything from these practice sessions and explorations, you've grown as a writer and added more tools to your arsenal. And read widely--everything and anything, not just in your own genre. Actively study what you read and notice what tools, tricks, styles, etc. the writers use, and use this metacognitive approach to analyze your own writing, as well.(less)
