Fifth post, final fifth post of the week of fifth posts, with almost twenty minutes to spare. I’m almost three full months into Summing-Up and with the exception of the Maugham responses, I haven’t found a system for how I want to write these posts. No system seems to be the prevailing attitude I take with them. Other than doing the word count and doing the four posts. Everything else—even just writing down post ideas—has fallen away. Thinking about the posts as a sequence, doesn’t hold up. Thinking about the posts just in terms of making the word count, doesn’t hold up and is one of the lamest ways to do a word count thing and Summing-Up isn’t even about the word count. There has to be one, but it’s not the point.
