Joining the Ranks


  1. I noticed a lot of folks doing simplified goals this round, so you're certainly not alone. And 750 per week sounds reasonable, so it looks like you're well on your way to a productive Round 3. Good luck!

    1. Yeah the simplified goals really worked for me last round, so I figured I should stick to it. Thanks!

  2. I know exactly what you mean; the goal I set doesn't matter nearly as much as the fact that I just keep working toward *some* goal. Best of luck this round!

  3. Glad to see that you've also thrown in your hat for Round 3! And egads, your historical fact for the day is absolutely mind-boggling… although given the complex and sordid history surrounding the end of slavery, race, Jim Crow, civil rights, etc, I suppose I should not be surprised. But you are correct — history is most definitely not dead, and shouldn't be forgotten.

    1. Yeah, it's always surprising once you really start to get into historical research. For my last book, I learned that the fireworks shot during Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee had a set that looked like the queen's face. Only… some of the fireworks didn't go off in time, so the beloved queen was made to look as though she was winking. Very undignified.
