I'd rather be writing

Oh, I know I'm already supposed to be writing. At least between 9 and 5. But that's assignment writing, not fun writing.

This year I'm participating in Nanowrimo again. This event proclaims November as National Writing Month, and encourages us each to try our hands at putting down 50,000 words of fiction. I revisited the heroine I created last year -- Margaret, Mags or Peggy, depending on when you knew her during her 60 years -- and I discovered I still like her. Now I can't wait to get back to her.

Instead I'm writing about why -- if you participate in a 401k at work -- you should also open an IRA. With my client. Who is paying me. God love them.

So I really must stop thinking of how I can rescue poor Margaret and get back to the swell variety of investment options my client offers.
