I did need to be refreshed, invigorated and revitalized, and this is what helped me!
Debbie, from Mascot Manor Genealogy, started hosting a "Writers Group" meeting for our local society at her home this year. I haven't been able to go to the meeting in eons, but yesterday I made it a point to attend. I am so very glad I did! All work and no play makes for a very boring life...
As Debbie pointed out to me, even though I may not have accomplished any writing on my "personal goals," I have started writing on my blog again. Such an eye opener for me. She is correct! Blog Posts here have been slim this year. For awhile it seemed like just another chore to me, writing a blog post, only because I've had so much going on.
Now, today, it seems new again and I am excited to get back to blogging. As Debbie says, blogging is writing, right? Right!
Attending the meeting yesterday was great fun! I have missed talking with a small group about genealogy. It was very interesting, and invigorating. Debbie herself has completed a book and it is wonderful. Kudos to her! Seeing this wonderful book and visiting with other genealogy minded people has put a spark in me that I have been missing. I left telling everyone, "I had to go because I had so much to do accomplish!"
The best part? I came home and accomplished a good part of one of my most recent goals, which I will talk about later in another post. This meeting "jump started" me, and I NEED to attend more of them!
Thank you Debbie for hosting this monthly event! Thank you for making me realize I am "writing." I promise I will try to attend more often!
What do you think you need to give you that jump start again? A conference? A meeting? A research trip? What is it that will give YOU that feeling of revitalization, excitement, desire?
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
