Why is it that some articles write themselves, and some have to be dragged kicking and screaming onto the page? I thought, "oh, I'll just write that piece for the Old English Newsletter over the next couple of days, then I can get the book proposal back to the publisher by the end of the week." This stupid article, though, isn't cooperating!
Yes, I know, this is exactly the kind of blog post I hate. Like any of you care that this paper is resisting being written. I just figured if I wrote something, it might knock something loose in my brain. Let's see if it worked.
