Sunday Salon – February Catch Up!

Do you know, I really do not know where February has gone? I have been busy and here in the UK we have had a really cold spell. Brr!

Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing…I have slowed down on the reading front. I have had a few books to review and then last week was the first on line meet of the Progressive Book Group. The first book for discussion was Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott, which I personally enjoyed. You can read my review HERE.

I also wrote a book review and then a guest post with Delancey Stewart, whose book Through a Dusty Window was a fictional account of the residents of the same brownstone New York building from 1910 through to 2010. This I loved, the genealogist in me wonders what the real residents were doing in that same time frame, and who were they?

Meanwhile, I have started working on two regular columns, the first at Smitten by Britain a site dedicated to the love of the United Kingdom and the second is at The In-Depth Genealogist, which hosts a substantial website and blog in addition to a digital magazine which you can download free.

I have spent much of the time during February working on a project involving my own ancestry and one of my links to India. This coincided with my review of The Fishing Fleet at the Historical Fiction.

February is also the time of the Family History Writing Challenge and this year the Photo Collage Festival. So I have been busy and enjoying things.

Tomorrow my book group meets and the books for discussion are

Dona Nicanora's Hat Shop by Kirstan…Inheritance by Nicholas Shakespeare

Those reviews up shortly.

Until next time!
