Hi, everyone. Yesterday, I shared a little sample of His Beloved Infidel. This novella ranks among my favorite pieces of work for a variety of reasons. I got to write about a city I love, share real-world events as seen through the eyes of ordinary people, and learn a great deal about the Persian culture. I had the opportunity to ask questions of people, as well as studying on my own.
I also gathered a great many images to inspire me. I use Pinterest for my story boards; it’s easy and convenient. If I found an inspiring image, I could put it up. I could also put up photos of places I planned to use in the text so that I could find them for easy reference. Whether it was architecture, wedding traditions, or poetry, I could take a look and get on track.
You can see the story board for His Beloved Infidel at this link.
