Sunday Synopsis; 2012 April 1st

A very full week  -- and a good writing week.  Two major  blog posts, WDYTYA, WTCU, and Old Mac's Sons of Temperance and by the skin of my teeth the Carnival of Genealogy, #116: Picture and Memories of Elizabeth Alfreda McPherson.  In addition, I posted two excerpts from the Centennial History of the Town of Springdale, Dane County, Wisconsin, 1848-1948.

My other writing projects have faltered a wee bit along the way.  However, I met with my critique group as well as made contact with an old writing friend.

This coming week, with my granddaughter's help, I hope to get back into the work on the book of Uncle Ralph's letters  --- note to self that I am consistently saying "the book of Uncle Ralph's letters.  It is my way of putting it out to the universe that this will indeed be a book of his letters, transcribed, compiled and annotated as an homage to my Uncle Ralph and my McPherson family.

Also, on my To-Do list is another story of the ranch years -- a project on the medium to back burner.

  1. Joan, only a juggler can keep all those dishes spinning in the air at once. For the rest of us...well, we gain some and lose some!

  2. Jacqi, Thanks for such a vote of confidence. Unfortunately, everything drop unceremoniously & I have to gather momentum again, but thanks for reading and by that keeping me motivated and active.

  3. Joan you are doing a great job at working through your to-do lists. I'm impressed by all that you're achieving and I know a lot is also going on behind the scenes. Keep up the good work! Sorry about the delayed response -I'm rather behind as busy with childcare arrangements at present. Keep up the good work.
