How I ever thought I'd have time to casually write a blog on the history of the ancient world I have no idea. The original thought was to write one post per chapter that distilled it and expanded on it in interesting ways...but the chapters were short, and the book was the size of a cinderblock. It would have taken as long as the reign of a Sumerian god-king to finish the project.
Still, the two pieces I wrote were fun. And what's more, giving up this project availed me with the time to finish a novel, start another, and then pause that one to write a novella.
I'm sorry I blog-dumped you, Susan Wise Bauer. I still read your book.
