The main reason I'm not blogging much is because, as you know, I'm all taken up with the work on the Gd book. But that's not the only reason. There's also the reluctance to post about trivia - or at least what seems like trivia to me but, in the right hands, can become wonderful writing. There are bloggers who can write about a humdrum day and make it so enjoyable that you're leaving a comment before you've read the last line and sixty other people are doing likewise. I admire these bloggers and envy them because I can't do it. Just as I have no small talk in social situations - I don't mean "small talk" in a pejorative sense, as though "big talk" is all that matters - no, I am in awe of people who can do it. They always have a ready supply of things to say about absolutely anything whereas I have a very limited number of subjects I can expound on.
