So, I want to share this, cause I think it is cool.

I’m taking a historical editing class this semester and I love it so far.  Our professor is one of the editors at the Eleanor Roosevelt Papers project at George Washington University.  As such, we’re working with her papers as part of the class.  I always knew she was a badass, but this is neat to be learning more specific bits about her life and work.

One of the things she did was write a 6 day a week newspaper column, called “My Day” – she wrote it from 1936 to 1962.  We’re reading selections from it for class, and when I have the time, I am going to go back and read all of it.

The Papers project has transcribed them and you can read them here, and I think you should take some time and go do some reading.

It also makes me realize that no matter how busy I am, I can certainly sit my ass down and write a bit every day.
