Is there any point in apologizing for being so absent recently? And what empty promises I make if I say it sha'n't happen in the future.
But I would like to make a determined effort that I post some short thing each day. And today it is a personal news item:
Over the past two days I have written two complete short stories. One of them is sketchy and tentative, but the other I think robust and fully "incarnate." Of course the speed of composition suggests allowing them to rest before reconsideration--but I do think that after their rest they shall shape up to become quite good.
