Okay, not a complete paragraph -- three sentences -- 110 words -- but still!
This is all part of my summer project to get my writing mojo back. I finished reading the novel over the weekend and am working this week on taking notes on it, but I'm also reading some historical background (which is totally part of the fun of this project), and today I wrote three sentences connecting a historical thing with a literary thing. It's probably going to be just a minor point, so I'm not writing anything more about it now, but the fact that I wrote at all is making me happy!
And I wrote those three sentences sitting in my backyard with my feet up and a diet ginger ale at the ready. Most delightful.
