A name at a time, a sentence at a time

My prior post said I wrote two paragraphs today. It's more like this. Judith Smith's diary, on one day in 1876, mentioned the names of three men. I wondered who they were. I researched but could not find good information, except for one: George Manson. It seems he lived in East Boston, like the Smith family, and had married a Scituate girl. A good reason for him to sail down to Scituate on that day. Then I wrote about it, one sentence at a time. I thought it would be one paragraph, but it grew into two. The first paragraph had to accurately convey and cite my research. The second one was more about finding the right words, keeping the sentences short and entertaining. That's how the paragraphs were created.
