Remember how my "To Do List" for spring break included a piece of writing for my supervisor? I did indeed complete that piece, which was about 5,000 words, and I sent it off on Sunday night. I thought the piece was quite rough; it has unfinished sections, etc., and is really about half of what Chapter One might eventually be. Well, I received feedback from her today (already!), and it was so positive that I am floating. Among other things, she said this:
"Overall, I thought this was very good indeed and not rough at all. You really are starting to get to grips with this and shape an argument which is convincing and original."
Perhaps, I might actually be able to do this! Plus, she is just the best supervisor ever.
