On a Personal Note

By Eilene Lyon Here we are, winding down another year, and I must take stock. My blogging output has been down a bit as it took a back seat to my book-writing. I completed the final manuscript for Fortune’s Frenzy at the end of August, and it will be released next summer. Almost immediately after... Continue Reading →

The Missing Blogger

By Eilene Lyon One or two of you (three?) may have noticed my absence. It's not my intention to disappear from the blogosphere, yet. I've been dedicated to working on my manuscript and other projects related to getting the book done and "out there." But I am ready for a little break from that. Time... Continue Reading →

Reflections

By Eilene Lyon Happy New Year and welcome to 2021!! Well, I'm pretty sure we're all happy to say "adios" "adieu" and "farewell" to 2020. But it wasn't an entirely bad year - I had the company of my fellow bloggers to cheer me along the way. This is the third anniversary for the Myricopia... Continue Reading →

For something a little different, I “borrowed” these questions from Ally over at The Spectacled Bean. Think... Continue Reading →

Blogging and Ancestry.com

By Eilene Lyon A disconcerting thing happened to me recently as I was perusing photo hints on Ancestry.com. Ancestry is a great place for people to share information about family. Old photos and excerpts from old books, as well as old documents, are all fair game. But things seem to be getting out of hand.... Continue Reading →

A Short Hiatus

Dear Readers, I’ve concluded a year of blogging with “52 Ancestors” and a total of 160 posts (including this one). I have many ideas for future posts, so I do plan to continue the blog. However, I need to focus my attention for the next 6 to 8 weeks on other writing projects. There’s a... Continue Reading →

Enrich Your Writing

By Eilene Lyon Somewhere is a mountain built of nothing but books on how to be a better writer. I’ve got a boulder from that mountain sitting on my shelf. Still, it’s nice to have a few exercises that make me feel, when I’ve done them, that they really did improve my work. Added spice... Continue Reading →
