It’s official. Today marks the start of the third annual Family History Writing Challenge! People all over the genealogy and family history community are taking this 28-day challenge, which entails a little bit of writing each day. I will be participating again this year, and you can read more about my goals here.
Haven’t made the commitment yet? That’s okay. Head over to the Family History Writing Challenge website to sign up. This nice thing about stating your goal publicly is that it makes you accountable and gives you a reason to follow through on your goal. When you sign up, you receive inspirational emails each day during the challenge. You should also consider participating in the forum, where you can ask questions, seek advice and encouragement, or help others on their quest.
Not convinced? There are several family history writing articles posted at the challenge blog from last year, with more coming throughout the challenge. These articles will give you ideas, encouragement, and advice to help you on your journey. And for those who feel they just don’t have time, check out the post I wrote for last year’s challenge: 6 Tips for the Time-Starved Family History Writer.
Come on…what are you waiting for? Join me in the Family History Writing Challenge!!
