|Rogue Women Roundup!
We’re starting a new monthly RWW Roundup for those who like to binge read their blogs! Here’s what the Rogue Women Writers talked about, researched and discussed in January:
It’s a new year and the Rogues discussed organizing tips and book suggestions. Jamie talked converting a spare room to an office, which inspired Robin to organize hers, and Gayle culled more than 1,000 pages of research (and check out her boxes of information, which were filmed during her interview with CBS Sunday Morning).
Karna gave a nice list of upcoming thrillers and trends for 2019.
Lisa asked, is it important for the protagonist of a mystery to be emotional? Or is it better to go back to the famous, and unemotional fictional detectives of earlier days?
And because we all write about geopolitical events, there was no lack of interesting information.
K.J. discussed the siege of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem that took place in 2002 and the fascinating, but frightening facts about nuclear weapons gone missing (the military even has a term for it). August wrote about the Vanishing Premier – how a statue that was a tourist spot disappeared– (perhaps an attempt to erase the collective memory of history?), and Chris detailed traveling to Kiev to research her book in the middle of the unrest there.
And finally, S.Lee wrote movingly about the history of International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
