Researching family history is one thing; writing about it is another. The Armchair Genealogist has thrown down the glove and challenged family historians to pick up a pen and commit to writing about their family history. “If not now, then when?” asks Lynn Palermo, writer and creator The Family History Challenge.
The 28-day project runs throughout the month of February. The event is simple, you choose —
- who or what you want to write about
- how many words per day to write
- where to write
The best part
- No Judge, No Jury
- Just write, edit later
When you sign up for the challenge, you receive an encouraging daily email and can participate in the challenge forum to share ideas and inspiration. Still not sure, check out the Family History Writing Challenge website for “28 Days of Motivation” and the Challenge Blog for posts from last year’s event.
I’m picking up the glove; are you?
