Have you ever gotten into the mindset of a special character? What about getting into the mindset of a First Lady?

Venita Ellick did it in her novel The Reluctant First Lady

Here's her writing experience:

How do you get into the mindset of a First Lady?

"I didn’t find it hard. As I wrote the story, I closed my eyes and imagined how I would feel in each situation. I could see the scene in my mind, like a play, and I would write the feeling tone of what I felt in the dialogue. That’s really all a writer can do.  Create, imagine, decide how much of your own perspective, your bias, to include in the story.

Having been a working mom with many demands, tugs and pulls on my time from all of the factions of my life, it made it easy to imagine Ashley’s scenario".

Thanks, Venita!
