For the tenth year in a row, Lynn Palermo will help genealogists write about their ancestors in the Family History Writing Challenge, taking place daily throughout February.
Ms. Palermo says, “The challenge is a wonderful opportunity to create a sustainable writing habit for yourself, but also to gain a few new skills to help you write engaging and entertaining stories.”
This year there will be daily video lessons, ranging from five to ten minutes.
The challenge provides a few steps to get started before February 1, such as deciding on the story to write, gathering the research, and setting a goal for how much to write each day. Goal-setting examples include as little as 30 minutes or 500 words a day.
