Not ready to write just yet - at least not in paragraphs!

I've wanted to write for quite a while but haven't found the courage and the time.  My mother is in my head criticizing my efforts and so I back-burner it for someday.  However, I did sign up for this challenge.

Sadly, I haven't begun yet :(  However, I've thought about it several times a day - hope that counts :)

I'm going to amend my pledge slightly.  I'm going to gather information about each person I want to write about - bmd dates/places, occupation, residences etc and identify the holes in my research so I can fill in the blanks.

Then, I'm going to create a wall chart timeline - I have a stretch of wall that isn't doing anything right now!  I'll add a pic next weekend.

I may not reach 250 words a day (actually more since I've written nothing the first two days) but it will be something.

Pam

Pam, your headed in the right direction. But I'm more concerned about what is holding you back. I encourage you to grab a picture, a document and just start writing, small paragraphs. You can link them together later and find a place for them, but those snippets of writing will also give you confidence and help you to find the direction you're looking for.

Well, I made a start today.  I`m using Personal Historian Essentials - the free version from http://www.rootsmagic.com/ .  It has a timer and a time-line and a whole lot of other features that I`m not really using but will check out sometime.

I`ve written 350 words in point form and now will spend some time writing a couple of paragraphs.

I`m my own worst critic and have to get over it.  Anything I do is better than what I don`t do :)

So, better late than never!  Maybe I`ll catch up :)  Thanks for the encouragement.
