Beginning the Nano Month

For the past few years, November has meant writing projects. They could be blogging projects or, like last year, an attempt at novel writing. The point is to get people used to the schedule of writing, with the end product being either a blog or a manuscript.

I have no idea if I have time to be an official participant this year, but I’m doing Nano regardless. Towards that end, this month will have the theme of Balance. I’m going to blog about bring the various parts of my life (husband, civil servant, nerd, grad student, brother, nephew and curmudgeon) into balance.

I’ll also probably write a lot about politics and my frustrations as a liberal.
