The blogspot internal counter says that Story and Meaning has had 5000 pageviews since I began in spring 2012. This is hardly a blip in internet traffic, yet I find it encouraging. I'm especially pleased to see that more than 1000 of those pageviews came from countries outside the United States.
I anticipate finishing the first draft of Castles by the end of 2014. That is, I will finish writing the last chapters. At that point I may start publishing two or three chapters per week.
