This is my first post for 2014. So a belated Happy New Year to those reading this blog.
My absence is due to my focusing on a book project which has turned out to be huge. It is over 500 pages and keeps changing its shape, morphing into configurations I hadn't intended, and in general soaking up my attention and time. Not that I mind. But it is one of those projects that you thought would be straightforward, and then suddenly becomes immensely complex.
But focus seems to have returned and I hope to post more regularly here at Shaping Words in the near future.
Thanks, everyone, for your patience.
