Flipping dead people.
I’ve got a blog post to write!
Stop being complex.
I’ve every intention of completing Ehler’s Choice Week, but Rommel is tripping me up. He’s going to require a bit more thought, given the amount of historical controversy surrounding him.
That’s been a problem with the history haiku posts lately – they’ve become a lot longer, because I don’t want to skip important stuff. But important stuff will be skipped, because we’re talking about silly daily blog posts, not properly researched, liberally footnoted books.
But I don’t want to half-ass the Rommel post, or any others.
I’ve been pressuring myself to produce a history haiku with a lengthy write-up daily, and that obviously hasn’t been working lately. Maybe the solution is to accept that certain subjects take more time and it’s okay to draw the research out a day or two.
I think I should still write a post daily, but maybe I’ll branch out as I allow a history post to ferment.
