Challenging Myself Again

I’ve decided to challenge myself again, concerning writing articles for posting here on MyLot. I’m going to take some time to find some of the things that I’ve written before, but never published anywhere and update them. I am hoping to post at least, five articles every day, so stay tuned. As I have mentioned before, I have all these notebooks, in which I have written things on many different subjects. I can update them and adapt them for MyLot. And while doing that, I will also have them for my grandchildren to read. When they were written in my notebooks, they were all written by hand and even though I have been complimented many times for my very legible handwriting skills, some of the ink has faded and the notebooks are worn and tattered. I want to use Microsoft Word and have very neat pages that I can perhaps even publish in a book for my grandchildren in the near future. So, I’m going to make it a project. In addition to updating old articles, I will also create new articles, so that there will be a nice variety of thing to read. Being retired makes it easier to have time to come up with challenges to keep me busy. I like being busy. So between getting all the photographs printed and labeled, I will have numerous articles written for my grandchildren to read. I think that is worthy of my time and energy. What do you think?

That sounds like a wonderful idea. I was looking over some old files this morning and wondering what to do with them. A book for grandchildren sounds good.

Yes, you should do it. I'm retyping everything on Microsoft Word and saving it in my documents. When I get enough for a book, I'm going to publish it. I know how to do that now with lulu.com.

That sounds a great idea. I think it is reasonably easy to self-publish such a book and your grandchildren will have a lovely memento of you and your writing skills.

Yes, I can publish it on lulu.com. I have already done that with a novel I wrote. I have copies here of my novel and lots of my friends want a copy. You can find it on lulu.com under my name. The title is "A Total Commitment."

It sounds like a good plan and I hope you have enough time to do all that.

Yes, I need to get started and figure out which articles I want to put in it. I have written over 2500 articles, between this site and another site, no longer in business. But, I saved all of those articles. They all need to be retyped and printed.
