I have been working on the research for my story for a goodly year now, and that is mainly the result of sheer procrastination. I think this has happened because I lumped the whole project together into “I want to write a book,” rather than breaking it down into smaller, more attainable goals. Therefore, my first goal in this venture is to Finish the research for my story. This involves the following steps:
Finish the research of Ireland’s history
Research a small period of time in Germany’s history
Research a small portion of Italy’s history until the present
I started out wanting to keep a journal because I wanted to show my boyfriend everything that I was doing and feeling while I was in paralegal school. Now I want to keep it more for myself to show myself how I’ve grown and developed while in school. I also want to keep it as a personal record of how I have done at working at achieving my goals.
So far I have visited North America and Europe, so I am halfway to my goal of visiting four continents. For my other two, I would definitely like to go to Australia and I would also like to go to either Asia (Japan) or Africa (South Africa).
