It's not historically accurate, but that's not important, not really.

What appealed to me was the demonstration of how an author takes their characters with them. No matter what they are doing or where they are going the characters are there, whispering ideas, giving little nudges.

Dickens says "Get the name right and then, if you're lucky, the character will appear" - the notion that with the right idea something can, seemingly write itself.
