Bits and Pieces

As one year ended and a new year began, I started to contemplate about what broad topic to use for my short, Friday posts. Because I sometimes have trouble coming up with something that does not require a lot of research, you will notice that I have chosen something that has not bounds. I love sharing these short pieces because they are items that would never end in one of my longer papers but are extremely interesting to me. Just to give you a little background about my writing: I do not find it easy to write. I love the research part; but taking a topic from research to posting has taken as long as a year. My current project is completing part two about my ancestor (John Whelden) who was brave enough to leave Salem, Massachusetts in 1696 after the Salem Witch Trials and sail south to the Carolinas. It is about 75% done but had to stop because of documents I need from the South Carolina Archives. I am hoping to go there this month and maybe get this one finished before spring. That’s a big maybe. We’ll see how it goes!

By the way, if anyone would like to send me topics you have thought about and/or willing to write a short piece, please let me know! I would love to have some collaborators! The first piece under “Bits and Pieces” at the top of the opening page of the blog is about an amazing book that I would recommend highly!
