Since Scrivener so nicely asked, I’ll post a quickie little telenovela of my dissertation life in the past 3-ish weeks — with more to follow tomorrow.
I’ve been informed by the PTB in my department that I need to finish or else it’s the axe. Gulp.
Ok, I says. I transmit said information to the advisor and repeate my request (the one I’ve given for the past 10 years at least once a semester) for hard and fast deadlines. Along with this request, I turned in my new Introduction (!! horay!)
Miracle of miracles, I’ve received such hard and fast deadlines!
Oh fuck, said I, I guess this means I have to finish. In the next 6 months.
So, that’s it in a nutshell. I’ll wax a bit more descriptive about this nutshell tomorrow when I resume my daily dissertation posts and start the chapter-a-month countdown clock!!
By the way, I’ve missed all my blog friends since I’ve been on teaching hiatus!
