way too much these days. I've been letting some projects get between me and my dissertation, and I want to try to put an end to that.I've been slacking off |
Basically, I've resolved myself to having the dissertation turned in by October 25th of this year. This gives me 42 days from now (what a good number). I'm currently standing at about 26,807 words and roughly 97 pages (it was more, but I've been slimming it down some).
I am choosing this date for many reasons. First, so that I have to time to schedule a flight and defend. Second, because I still have a little more work on another incomplete I need to polish off. Third, because I really want to do nanowrimo this year (I've been brainstorming a bit, and I want to do some outlining before throwing myself into it).
Next year, I have some lofty goals I am setting for myself, and I won't have time for them if I am still slaving away on this dissertation.
Thursday has class on Saturdays, so maybe I can get some stuff done while she's gone?
