At the Write Stuff Literacy, Writing, and Research Festival at the National Archives in Washington, DC on July 8th, I asked the following:
- Settings for A Little Wicked are based on where my Scottish and early-immigrant American ancestors lived.
- If you were to write a historical novel based on your own heritage, where would you set it?
- For example, maybe your family is Irish and you decide to set your story during the Irish Potato Famine of 1845-1852. Or maybe your ancestors are from California during the time of the Gold Rush. – excerpt from A Little Wicked: A Curriculum Guide for Educators and Readers by Marcie Colleen thisismarciecolleen.com
Many people answered the call and named the countries of their ancestors. The pie chart is a breakdown of their responses.
Thank you to all who participated!
