My calendar tells me that I have two weeks to prepare for this challenge. I hope this is ample time for me to prepare for the actual writing and still take time off to "have a life" plus working on my current project based genealogy project.
I take the challenge for a daily word count of 250 words.
To begin (not in my word count), I must define my purpose (and write about that) and get my photographs together and make sure I have enough materials for the process. I started that this morning.
I tried to sign up for the Writing history forum but it required an account with some kind of forum ID and my computer didn't actually send me to a sign up page, so I will just lurk around the forum on my iPad. I am not a fan of forums anyway.
I will also need to point my readers to the correct resources for learning about photographs. I know I have a few blog posts already written but I have no resource list of books and places to buy materials. Since this is separate from the actual writing I will do for the challenge, I 'd better use these two weeks to get that going.
I don't want to waste time going over and over the process, so I am going to pre-write how to do that before Feb 1.
During the 28 day challenge, I want to write as much as I can about the photograph and the people or places in each picture. Then, I will be putting things in order (offline) This is about what I need to do to write about my family in the future. I am sorry to tell you that this is not about what you need to work with your own photos.
So, if you are interested in the project, pay close attention BEFORE February 1. Then, you can read about my ancestors (not not). I will not be answering questions about the process after Feb 1. I will be busy writing.
