I love to write. Sometimes I go to bed writing blog posts in my mind. By the time I get up in the morning I've forgotten what I "wrote" and have to try to reconstruct those delightful phrases and sparkling paragraphs. I rarely can.
For a long time I thought I was a reasonably good writer. In an effort to become a better writer I began reading more about writing. It didn't take long to realize I have a long way to go before I will be a good writer. It takes practice and discipline to become a good writer. And just at the moment I lack discipline.
So I accept the Family History Writing Challenge as posted at The Armchair Genealogist. This challenge will be good for me. I can write at least 250 words every single day in February. That's one typewritten page. Easy, right? (So why haven't I been doing it?)
This is the first year I've participated but I understand that we will receive ideas, suggestions, and encouragement along the way. It's open to anyone who wants to write. Maybe you'd like to accept the challenge and join us?
