Using my A to Z Archives: Abacus


I’d like to use today’s publication slot to highlight another older post. This one, less old; it’s from the 2019 sequence.

Abacus led off a series of essays that, generally, I quite liked. Normally right after publication I feel like I just barely had enough words to be presentable and maybe they make any sense. This essay started out with some talk about how to use an abacus. But then I realized the real question was why use an abacus, and that opened the essay in good ways. There’s a writing lesson for me in there somewhere, and I won’t learn it well enough.
