A new semester begins tomorrow. I am excited to meet my students and get things going, but I will also miss the free time that this summer has afforded. I’ve had a very productive three months, writing two conference presentations, a book chapter, and some productive brainstorming notes for another book chapter that is due next spring. I have also sustained this blog at a satisfactory level. Writing here almost every day has really helped my academic writing because it helps keep me sharp. It is always a struggle to find writing time when classes are in session, but I am going to try to continue to write here at least every other day, and also make time for my scholarship. I have good momentum going and want to keep it up.
