When I created this schedule of posts, I thought the second Wednesday would be easy. How difficult would it be for me to post something about literature. . .I mean, I am an English teacher.

But it’s tough sometimes.

Especially since the school year has begun again.

I could write about what we’re studying in my sophomore English classes these days (archetypes in traditional literature–think Gilgamesh and Bible). Or I could write about the last book for Between the Covers (And the Mountains Echoed–but it taxed my brain). I guess I could write about how we’re trying to think of something more light hearted and uplifting for this next month (maybe Garden Spells).

But I’m not feeling very inspired by any of that. Which is slightly sad (how do you like that alliteration).

So the paradox is despite the fact that I’m surrounded by literature, I can think of nothing to write about for this post.  Nada.  Zilch.  I have the dreaded writer’s block.

I guess I’ll go grade some more papers.
