A note about the gap
There's been a fairly long gap since I last wrote every day. I've been spending the time writing some fiction, crawling along producing a short story. I need to let the first draft sit in an electronic drawer for a few weeks, so now I'm back to daily writing.
My current book is... The Norton Anthology of Theory and Criticism. It's nearly 3000 very dense pages and I have no plans to read it cover to cover, but so far the introduction has been interesting. I'm not writing about it today because I'm finally getting around to adding summary pages.
