Weigh anchor and call again at Novus Latium!
Just blowing the dust off this old blog!
I have a couple of freshly-read novels on my table that are begging for reviews.
Other than that, it's just a sense of guilt and obligation that prompts me to return to the blog-- not any improper guilt or obligation, simply my own conviction that I ought to exercise my writing skills on a regular basis lest they become soft and flabby like Jabba the Hutt.
Sometimes, you know, I've stopped myself from blogging on the grounds that whatever brilliance I may come up with would be the legal property of Blogger and as vulnerable to plagiarists as a glowing rodent in a dark forest full of owls.
So be it. I haven't a hope of publishing anything for monetary reward; firstly, the publishing establishment seems to frown upon well-executed, inspiring yet highly intellectual works of literature in this day and age, and secondly, I haven't written any. Yet. In the meantime, the least I can do is not bury my talent like the third servant in the parable.
