This is post #500 of SMT. This blog has been of extraordinary benefit for my scholarly productivity, and possibly has helped yours along too. That's the idea.
The article I am writing now will the best I've ever done. I just spent two hours on it this morning and I feel the ideas taking shape. I was a little frustrated because I had to spend a few days just reading hundred of pages. I much prefer writing. This work, however, has paid off, because I wouldn't have been able to write without this research.
