Good question. The wonderful novelist Lee Smith was once asked in a Q & A session whether she wrote every day. She repled, “I don’t always have something to say, do you?” Among the factors contributing to my silence have been a round of beautiful spring weather in Richmond, jury duty, a new computer that needed no end of fussing over, and a stubborn short story that refuses to properly end. And as Lee says, I don’t always have something to say. Perhaps I’m suffering from blog block.
