I’ve always thought that writing a family history book seemed a daunting task - probably because it is a daunting task. I’ve tried to make a start a few times in the past but always floundered, overwhelmed by the scope of the project.
The trouble with that is, I would really like to write a more substantial family history document that I can share!
It occurred to me that although writing a whole book, even a short one, sounds like hard work… writing 100 words doesn’t sound so bad. One hundred words is hardly anything. You could do it every day without breaking a sweat!
So, that’s what I’m doing. I’m writing (at least) 100 words each day. Sometimes I will write more than that, which is great, but all that I have promised myself is the manageable target of 100 words a day.
Tonight I have written 277 words taking my total to 1,100 words so I am giving myself a pat on the back for overachieving on my 100 word goal!
