Judith told me that 100 pages by december would keep the department off my back. I'm thinking that should be no problem as long as I can find time to write while teaching. I think right now I have close to 80 pages although of course none of it has been approved yet.
she also told me that people have graduated on 120 pages before. it's possible that I am halfway through. that seems unlikely somehow and certainly nothing I'm writing could actually be worthy of a dissertation.
well who knows. I think I need to wind up the section I'm working on and send it off to them so they can all tell me just what it is I should be doing instead.
