Let's see, where was I?

The dissertation has been ignored for several months.

So, I am now dusting off my notebook, settling in with Factual Fictions: The Origins of the Novel by Lennard J. Davis (a bit outdated, but still helpful), and I will go from there.

I hope to get a lot of reading done and write 15-20 pages in the next two weeks (despite having to arrange for the Girl's birthday activities and prepare for a family trip to Hawaii).

Wait. Who's laughing? I hear someone laughing. I think it's jc . . .

You can do it!
[If you don't sleep.]
I mean: YOU CAN DO IT! REALLY! ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!

Rainbows and chee to you!

(But seriously...you can write 20 pages in one night with the "all-nighter" approach!)

Ink, I had forgotten about the all-nighter approach. But I'm not sure my 41-year-old self can pull those off.

Maybe a few really *late* nights can add up to one all-nighter?

Now, I just have to figure out what the poop I'm going to write . . .

I once spent 12 straight hours attempting to write a section of my dissertation that would, if you only read the first letters of each new line vertically, say obscene things...maybe you could pull it off?!?

Fie upon this quiet life! said...

God... I have PTSD from some of those dissertation all nighters. Good luck to you! Just think -- you will be so glad when it's all done! Let that serious relief be a motivation to you!

Cheering from the sidelines, GEW! My thesis cheers for you too. It likes knowing *somebody* is taking up the call to write ... ;)
