I just finished reading Sue Monk Kidd's latest book, "The Invention of Wings."
Before reading this book, I had been all set to just publish the Grandma and Grandpa letters as is with no story.
But after reading the Author's Notes in the back of Kidd's book and learning that the story is based on real events that occurred, I am re-thinking writing my own story to go with the letters.
I need to be okay with allowing myself the artistic license to distort some of the facts and come up with a story based on the letters even though I know all the facts and how their story ended.
New inspiration can be very energizing! :)
