During the warm summer months, it can be difficult to focus on our family history writing. Doing so often reminds me of the (painful) annual school assignment, What I did on my summer vacation.
Lynn Palermo, Canadian genealogist and editor of Storylines, hopes to inspire us and keep us focused. She provides us with tips to keep our writing on track and steps to help us create a schedule. Throughout the summer, she will provide prompts to stir our creative juices. This month, Ms. Palermo suggests we write about summer memories and the five senses.
Easily distracted and even focused family history writers should read the June edition of Storylines, Writing Through Summer Distractions. I suggest reading it in the garden while sipping chilled Chardonnay, but that’s just me.
