What a Week...

How are you doing on your New Years Resolutions/Goals? Here, I have been devouring Frederick Douglass: A Voice for freedom in the 1800' Camilla J. Wilson. As a writer wanting to write a nonfiction article, I am learning to do more than devour. I look at sources and acknowledgements. I look at where the pictures came from. Are these some sources that might prove helpful in my own research? It is in the same time period so I feel I am getting close to understanding and learning more about research.

On another note, I am sad that I missed Irene Latham's book launch. I had to cancel at the last minute due to an emergency at work. I heard that I missed a great one and Pat couldn't wait to rub it in.
So on the way home last night while driving in the pouring rain I got to here what a good time I missed.
On a good note Pat did Irene to sign my book for me and I can't wait to read it. I made sure it was facing out when I went to our local bookstore.

Sheila, you were missed BIG TIME! And thank you so much for the special gift. Y'all are the best. :) Looking forward to seeing you in early February. Btw, when does sailing season start? (is there a "season"?) And hey, I see you got your goodreads shelf installed. Way to go!
