I've not been writing for a few reasons. One is that I've been discouraged and disheartened and haven't had much to say. The other, more recent, one is that every time I sit down to blog, not only have I nothing to say, but I think of how I should be preparing for my essay instead. So, in the spirit of spring, re-emerging after a winter hibernation, I'm attempting to pick this back up on a more regular basis. The challenge will be to come up with something interesting to say or an interesting way to say something. Maybe I shouldn't worry about that and just write.
