This, starting to write on the blog again, is like getting back to an exercise plan, you just have to start again! I haven’t done much writing since this late winter/early spring when I was trying to finish my dissertation. I wrote the last two chapters of my dissertation in about 2.5 months while it took me over 3 YEARS to write the first three chapters! Now that my fingers have rested up, similar to a marathon runner’s legs resting up after a race, they’re ready to get back to writing. Also similar to getting back into an exercise routine, this post is going to be short as I build my stamina for writing. I don’t want to strain or sprain a muscle (finger or brain). It is my hope to return soon and share some of my thoughts on what I am reading right now.
