Family History Writing Challenge

one of my journals
For the second year in a row I am participating in the Family History Writing Challenge. I wasn't really sure if I wanted to do it since I have not done anything with the writing I completed last February. But then a post in the daily motivational newsletter from The Armchair Genealogist caught my eye. "It's not just about your ancestors. It's also about you!" I could approach this year's challenge from my perspective - my stories and my memories. I have been writing some of them down recently anyway, so the challenge can help me keep on track.

This is day two of the challenge, so I better get cracking! I am going to download the trial version of a  writing program called Scrivener, as it has been recommended by many of my writing friends as a useful aid for organizing and writing long text documents. I will post a review of my thoughts on the program in the near future.
