The cup runneth empty

Well, crap. The brain cell in charge of blogging is apparently still sleeping, because I’ve got nothing today.

I’ve been thinking about yesterday’s post and how I managed to “internalize” rewrite Mel’s opening in my comments and what Mel said in response and about Jodi Picoult’s books, but those thoughts haven’t yet fermented into an even reasonably coherent post, so stay tuned…… Read More »
