Coming up next...The Family History Writing Challenge 2014!

Amazing! Where did 2013 go? It seems like we finished up last year's writing challenge just a few months ago...but no, the 2014 challenge is right around the corner!

Following last year's challenge, I got caught up in estate files, deeds & plats...in late May I started on the clock with Board for Certification of Geneaologists (BCG), and in November I began working on the Forgotten Patriots of North Harlowe, NC Project, researching for the North Carolina Sons of the American Revolution (NCSAR).

In all it's been a very busy and productive year...except for my family history memoir.

Guess that means it's time to clean up the piles on my desk and locate the records and journals I need to take off on another year's adventure!

I hope you'll stop by periodically as February will be here before you know it!

P.S. While my merchandiser at "the j-o-b" doesn't like my desk clutter (she should see my home office! YIKES!), here's a little tidbit from the American Psychological Association (APA) that might amuse you Messy Desk People like myself!
A Messy Desk Encourages a Creative Mind

Or...as Einstein said,
Yeah. I think I like that one! <smiles>
