I said initially I was going to publish two posts a week, but I have run into a stumbling block.  I can’t write.  I had this really interesting thing happen this week.  I wrote about it.   It was trash.  So I’ve gone back to square one.  Thankfully my wife was the valedictorian of her Secondary English Education class in college and my mother is an aspiring author so I have help.  I’m reading “Eats, Shoots and Leaves” so I can learn what an apostrophe is.  Then I’m going to read Grammar Girl’s book and then “The Elements of Style.”

That is the trick about going from being a math person to being a language person.  The things I have been trained in are of no value and the things I need to be amazing at, namely writing and speaking, I have no ability in whatsoever.
