This is harder than it looks

To any few readers I have who might be stopping by periodically to check for updates here: I thank you sincerely for your too-kind interest, and I apologize. I've been itching to write more, and have a few almost-finished drafts that have been circling in a holding pattern for far too long, but I haven't yet managed to figure out how to fit this project in as a regular part of my life and land them. It is quite simply beyond my miniscule intellect's comprehension to understand how blogopheric giants like Glenn Reynolds manage to succeed in their full-time day jobs, have time for family, and simultaneously write (or even “link-blog” with brief, insightful comments) so prolifically. My work life isn't even at its most intensely demanding right now, so I would think I should be able to fit an allowance for writing into my still-existent free time now if ever. No doubt part of the problem is that I'm just plain slow at this when I do manage to sit down and get to it — a situation that I can only hope will improve as I gain more experience as a writer. In the meantime, to any who may be reading this, thank you for your patience! I hope to soon get the hang of what I'm attempting to do here and manage to produce some worthwhile prose on the burning issues that have motivated me to start this project. I'm going to try to put some time into finishing up one or two new posts today. Hope to see you again soon on the other side!
