My NaBlo posts are in the form of letters to my journal about my revision process. Along the way, I'll include Home-Made Revision Workshop posts, and my Friday Challenges.
A straight-forward challenge for today. Find a project that you keep telling yourself, and probably others, that you want to finish. Figure out what is REALLY holding you back. Make a decision - that you will complete it - or you'll drop it with relief. If you decide you are going to finish it - draw up a plan to do so. You are allowed to change it as you go, but start with a plan of attack. Here's mine:
I want to write a book about how women coped in the depression with putting food on the table, raising families, doing laundry, maintaining gardens, or just plain surviving. I have done some research on my paternal grandmother and I have enlisted five other people to research their grandmothers but it is going slow. I'm going to put the word out one more time and then decide if I need their help or can do it another way.
OKEY DOKEY - see you later... this is a picture of my great-great grandparents - the baby - that's my grandpa and it is his wife who I want to write about! Oh, and that house is a soddy I think. Manitoba!
