Project Ideas in the Middle of the Night

Last night was productive. I was totally lost on my Coos Indian project, not knowing the setting or conflict.

In 1931, the Coos, Siuslaw, and Lower Umpqua Indians gave depositions to the Court of Claims, for compensation of confiscated lands. These are tribes that inhabited SW Oregon. Setting solved: location and time period. I have never written historical fiction, but I love doing research and learning new things. Conflict: something having to do with this court battle.


I can listen to classical music sometimes. However, there is one piece of music that rocks my soul.
