NaNoBloPo(mo?) day 1
Hey — I have 6 minutes left.
The other day, someone I know passed on the information, via LDW, that I was quoted in the THE the other day. Kinda cool. So I told a couple of people: Provost (have I mentioned he’s a medievalist?), Surf Instructor, and PoCo Woman, both colleagues who are indeed cool people. This morning, PCG said she liked my writing style (a compliment, since she’s a lit person), and reminded me that writing is writing.
So as part of my writing group work, I’m going to try posting something every day this month. I definitely have three larger posts in mind: one on collegiality; one a response to Hot Edge’s post likening the historian’s work to Internal Affairs; and the promised one on teaching/research/gender. I’m hoping this will keep me sane, rather than adding to the pressure. It’s been a hell of a week so far, and it’s only Tuesday!
