Today I attended several workshops presented by George Morgan at the Lancaster Library. He mentioned a technique that sounds like it would be a good way to finally start that book without being overwhelmed. So for all of my relatives who have been gently nudging me and the one who has been threatening to pass on before I get around to doing it, I'm starting tonight.
That puts all other research on a back burner for now. Doesn't mean I won't be doing research on other lines but I've decided to focus on this project for awhile.
