NANOWRIMO — Progress Report #NANOWRIMO #Books

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

NANOWRIMO — Writer's GuideStanczyk is a very busy man these days. Work, Drs, getting some services performed and NANOWRIMO.
NANOWRIMO, for those who do not know, is  a national event going on right (or is write) now … this November. In fact every November is NAtional NOvel WRIting MOnth (#NANOWRIMO).

This genealogist/blogger/reader has long watched while writer friends of mine toil in November. This year I decided to challenge myself. So I went to NANOWRIMO.org . I downloaded their writer’s advice guide and I am following L.Y. MARLOW’s  chapter (which surprisingly freed me up to do this): “Write A S#!TTY Draft”. Heck, I know I can do that. 

After all I am a blogger. I am also a great reader and overall Sherlockian-like observationist of the human condition. 

Now who else is with me?

Writers & Other Citers Alike Take Note …

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

tanczyk hopes you are citing sources for your facts (minimally in the areas of conjecture). Trust me if you ever want to go back and revisit a “fact” and reconsider that fact in light of new evidence/”facts” you will be glad to know where you got that “fact”/notion from.

Perhaps you do not wish to aspire to Elizabeth Shown Mills level of documentation, but some level of citation is de rigeur.

Well at any rate, Thomas MacEntee at Geneabloggers posted a great link: The Genealogy Source Citation Quick Reference Card at is a quick overview with information on a citation quick reference (a PDF document) that includes links to Bibliography Builders (online) and asked for us to pass it on — consider it done Thomas.
