First Book Research Anniversary

Huge milestone!

Alternative Muses

Today is a milestone! This is a bigger deal than my first wedding anniversary because book research is trickier than marriage. I’m using today to appreciate all I’ve accomplished instead of focusing on all there is left to do.

Yay!

Never a Dull Day in Biographyville

I cannot believe that it has been a month since my last post! We have been extremely busy at the family business AND most of what little spare time (ha!) that I have goes to book research.

I promise to post more frequently in June (not that that would be hard!). In the meantime, here is the most recent post from Alternative Muses, wherein I briefly catch you up on an unexpected turn-of-events in Biographyville.

NEVER A DULL DAY IN BIOGRAPHYVILLE

ISSUE SIXTEEN [R]evolving Research: Achievement Unlocked

I achieved a major milestone a couple of days ago! What is it? Thanks for asking. I finished cataloging the contents of J’s main scrapbook. Hallelujah! I’ve already added the relevant information to her Master Timeline. This means that I can move on to the next phase of research. Not sure what that is going to be, just yet. There are many, many options.

RESEARCH NOTES: WEEKS 23-24

  • VICTORY: Finally finishing the scrapbook project, obviously.
  • HAPPY DISCOVERY: I came across a marriage announcement (of sorts) for J and her husband R. Baby steps.
  • FRUSTRATION: I’m being spread very thin these days. Not enough time. The usual, right?
  • CURRENTLY READING: Lots of century-old newspaper clippings.
  • HOURS SPENT ON RESEARCH: Approximately 12, across two weeks.

Until next time!
