Got It Happening

I have mentioned a couple of times I know that I have been doing some mediaeval research. It has grown and is quite a large topic now but I have been having a big problem with writing it up.

Something at primary school put me off getting anything down on paper,can't remember what, and I have always found it difficult.

Several times I have tried to get this bit of research written up on the computer and found it impossible.People have even offered to help me but to no avail.

This afternoon I was sitting at the kitchen table writing out my shopping list.There was a loose-leaf pad on the table and I started to write up my research from my head.

It is flowing out of my hand like a waterfall at the moment and I am wondering if it is because I am using a pen and draft copy has to be hand written in my mind. Would like to be down there scribing away at this very moment really.

As long as I can get the bones down I can type it on to the computer and put on the flesh. So excited about this and am going to have to get all the notes together.

Oh I do hope I can keep up the momentum this time.

Well done Sharron :-D

I find it easier to write things down, then type them up - hence I have lots of pieces of paper with 'things' written on them :-S

Mum must have found the same - hence the 4 very large boxes of genealogy stuff I now have - one containing pictures, letters and things like ration cards! (from my gran's house), the other three containing notebooks and paper with writing on - and CD's ,where, I hope, she's transferred the handwritten notes :-0
