Really, 33 1/8 pages written, all for chapter 2 the “place of place in invention studies” chapter, which could potentially be a monster-long one. I’m starting to think that the section about Bizzell and LeFevre (Inventing a Place for Myself) might end up being introduction material. Nothing wrong with that, right? Of course, I still need to write the rest of chapter 2. . .
I’m not sure what I was thinking when I decided to keep a dissertation blog. Yes, I do, actually. I was thinking it would be an easy(ish) way to write an interchapter without having to write an interchapter. Or something. Sigh.
Maybe my problem is too much thinking about what I want my blog to be and not enough doing. . .am I really that vapid? I finally decided to take a look at Nonsociety, the blog constantly poked at by Gawker and Jezebel, 2 blogs I admire. . .it’s fluffy, a little annoying, and self-absorbed. And dear God, I kind of wished for that sort of air on my own blog. Not exactly an easy feat when the subject of my blog is supposed to be my dissertation. Gulp. When did I become my own bully? Oh yeah, that’s been a life-long journey.
At least I feel like a little bit of progress is being made at the moment. I’m sure that feeling will wear off soon.
