Judi Scott invited me to participate in this Writer's Blog Tour. http://puzzlesofthepast.blogspot.com/
Judi and I enjoyed working together over the past five years as part of a team of editors for the Bulletin, a quarterly publication of the Genealogical Forum of Oregon. We also traveled to several genealogy events and conferences where we were presenters of classes or attended classes.
It is a joy to share the love of genealogy with others who also enjoy the work of discovering families and making connections that link generations together. The purpose of the tour is to spotlight the blogs of writers. Each blog writer is supposed to answer the same four questions and then to introduce two other bloggers. We each blog for different reasons and find personal gratification in doing so.
Usually a topic will come to mind when resting in bed at the end of the day. My best time to write is when the house is quiet and there are no interruptions. The writing is a free flow of thought. It is putting on paper what flows into my head. Once that is finished then it is re-read several times. It is run through spell check and then re-read again. Proof reading is one thing that seems to come naturally to me. Not that it is perfect, but it is my best effort. Getting comments on what would enhance my writing has been wonderful.
