How do you stay accurate to the time period?
“With a little help from my friends.”
Although I did not let Elijah discuss helicopters or syringes, I did allow “mothballs” and “certifiable” to slip into early drafts. So embarrassing to discover that mothballs were invented in 1820. My friend Ava says these jolts cause “literary whiplash.”
I thank the Lord for friends who check the facts.
Please show me glitches.
