  • Mood:

preparation

I am about to do some work on my dissertation. I can neither describe nor explain the attendant anxiety. I am either going to: work on outline for chapters one and two as I am having difficulty keeping them separate in my head; look at old Stein essay and see how revisable/excerptable it is for chapter one; or write one more sentence on language, ethics, and the difference between mimicry and contagion (or "becoming," to use D&G's term but it's old and worn out by now).

which should I do first. I could write the sentence but I think it might be good to get a sense of where this collection of sentences that I started yesterday will go in relation to everything else so that I have some idea of where to point it in anticipation of whatever transitional device will be needed to get it going to its nextdoor neighbor topic. looking at the Stein essay and working on an outline might be concurrent tasks as looking at the one will tell me a little about what to do with the other.

oh dear oh dear oh dear.
