In this post Jody Hedlund shares some practical and timely advice for writers regarding social media. 
 
Do Writers REALLY Need to Use Social Media Anymore?

Miss Jennifer Hudson Taylor - I'm Michael Alan Haggard.  I want to thank you for your article about Hezekiah Alexander, and his stone home built outside of Charlotte, NC.  My grandmother was Flossie Jeanetta Kaiser Phillips.  Flossie's grandmother was Jeanetta Ellen Alexander, descendant of Hezekiah Alexander.  I have recently been doing family tree research on the Alexander family, but had not seen any photos of the Stone Home Hezekiah had built about 1774.  I just want to thank you for giving me a further look into the Alexander family I am now holding so dear.  My mother, Helen Bernice Phillips Haggard is 84 years of age, and it's really her recollections that made it possible for me to learn far more than I had ever imagined about the maternal family tree.  Hezekiah's father was Captain James Robert Alexander, and I am now doing research about Hezekiah's father and where he came from, all the way back to the Hezekiah's grandfather, Joseph Alexander, b. 1660, Raphoe, Donegal, Ireland.  After looking at the photos you included in the article about Hezekiah's Stone Home, I'm even more excited about learning all I can.  Again, thank you so much.  Sincerely, Michael Alan Haggard, Springfield, Missouri - mike22mike@gmail.com

While the Christmas decorations were out, I slipped into our storage area and pulled out research and notes I had taken on 3 stories I've set aside. Now I have to decide which one to work on first!

My fellow writers, don't wait for the perfect circumstance or time to write. Don't let excuses keep you from your dreams and goals. JUST WRITE!
