Shift in Focus

I’ve decided to shift the focus of this blog a bit with less postings about genealogy and more about writing. To be honest, writing seems to be taking up more of my time these days. Sure, I still love to search for my ancestors and keep up with the latest happenings in the genealogical world, but with more and more writing assignments (happily) coming my way, I find myself thinking more about writing than genealogy these days.

From time to time I will blog about new findings in my own research, and breaking news or special announcements related to family history. But, since there are so many excellent blogs and bloggers out there who give daily updates about new databases or services, conferences and the like I often feel I am just repeating what has already been shared.

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about the writing process – why I do it, the struggle to get the words on the paper, finding the time and discipline to write, fighting writer’s block, dealing with rejection and critics, and much more. So these are some of the topics I will be exploring.

I welcome comments from any fellow writers out there!
