Happy Month!

I'm going to try nablopomo again this year. I've made it more difficult for myself, and added some incentive, by challenging my Creative Nonfiction students to take part, and together we're going to try and raise some money for the United Way. I've posted about our challenge in College English. I will likely be cross-posting some posts so that I don't have to do 30 posts X 2, but for some reason I'm still reluctant to publicize this blog to my students (even though I can lock posts if I want).

So I'll be doing 30 more-or-less English related posts there, and keeping up my burbling about more personal things in here.

Oddly enough, even though I've been so busy I haven't had time to post much here this term, I'm looking forward to it. Teaching creative writing is a blast, and I've been aching to do some writing of my own. So here's my chance ;-)

So the goal in nablopomo is to blog an entry a day in November?

Yes - I did it quite easily last year, just in here, but I may find it more difficult to do more "professional" posts every day. However, because it's for a creative writing class, I'm going to try some of the prompts I'm giving my students.

I'm so glad you posted about this so I saw it in time. I've been so lax with my academic blog and this will force me to attend to it.

I added you to my blogroll on wordpress :)

Kudos to you for adding the pledge angle; I have not gone that far!

ETA: I will NEVER link my students to LJ!

cool! added you back ;-) Thx for the comment!

No, I agree about the students. One or two of them (on top of a couple who have become friends since) have sought me out, but I'm never quite comfortable about it.
