A combination of two passions

I'm finally back to writing full time. Genealogy is once again on the back burner, at least until I have some time next weekend. But when I searched through some new resources for my family history, I found that Newspaper Archive has a section devoted to writers. The website provides access to thousands of newspaper articles (none of which are any use to me at the moment) and the writers section is for those that want to have their historical memoirs or other type of historical article featured. If I had more information on my family, and at least one great newspaper article, I would certainly consider this.

I like that this offers a chance for me to kill to birds with one stone. I didn't know if I could really do anything with my research, but as long as I have all the facts straight, I think I can create something that is the perfect combination of my two greatest passions – at the moment. I might start with that bio I found of my great-great-grandfather and build off of that. It might be an interesting tale. Who knows? But until I can do more research, it is back to the novel.
