my dissertation now tops 100 pages single spaced. it is true that about ten of those are an old Stein essay that needs to be thoroughly revamped to takes its place in the introduction, but most of it I think will appear in the form it is in, just not right where it is at the moment.
I can't believe I have written 100 single spaced pages on approximately one topic. on the other hand every paper I have ever written has only been a rehearsal of this one and a training exercise on how to get the most detail out of the barest of textual facts.
I guess my training is paying off.
so it is 1:30. I have a cat on my lap. I'm vaguely hungry. what now?
