Writers of Historicals Need to Have Lots of Visual Inspiration

Yes, indeed, we do! Even if we don’t model our heroes on the aforementioned visual inspiration, the Muse still needs the nourishment. Toh-TAH-ly.

Isn’t that a great excuse to watch old MGM musicals, specifically those featuring Gene Kelly?

‘S marvellous.

Wonderful, even. 🙂

Besides, if you’re not into crime and mysteries, our TV programme (CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, Navy CIS, Cold Case, Without a Trace, Medium, Ghost Whisperer, plus several German detective series) is uninspiring in the extreme. Not to talk about majorly depressing. By contrast, those old musicals are wonderful, feel-good entertainment, and you can count on them bringing a smile on your face.

And there is Gene Kelly, of course. Have I already mentioned Gene Kelly? *g*
