Inspirations for Writing - Guest Post
By Tales of an Unlikely Mother on April 29, 2014
Today, I have author and superstar Elizabeth Hawksworth who has been gracious enough to talk about some of her inspirations for one of my favorite books, "Lake Effect." They say you shouldn’t live in the past, but it’s from the past that I’ve gotten my inspiration as a writer. I’ve written at length about my inspirations for my second book, “Lake Effect: Voices of Toronto’s History”, but when Darlena asked me to write about them again, I struggled to formulate a post that was different from anything I’ve written before. And so this post isn’t about my inspirations so much as it’s about the reason why I felt like I had to tell the stories of Toronto’s immigrants. . . .
