I can’t believe it’s August. 🙂
Well, my momentum is good and my spirits are up. One can NEVER be too grateful for that.
I took this photo this morning: Liquid Planner was up, I had my Earl Grey tea, and I was ready to write. And write I did! (Woot!) Most writing was to continue adding to my methodology section (this has been oh, so slow going :() and to fix my janky “commognition” definition. I think those paragraphs may be about as “g’nuff” as they’re gonna be. 😉 Moving on!
It’s a weird feeling: I am CERTAIN that things I’m doing today are putting me in excellent shape for being able to work SUPER briskly once I stop working and become my brother’s family’s house guest so I can finish everything up. (Thank you, brother and other family members who are making this possible!)
It’s still scary though to have only eked along as much as I have in the past 3 days. If I’m honest, some of that is because I haven’t stuck to my New Year’s Theme (yeah–pointedly NOT a New Year’s Resolution, see this Thesis Whisperer blog post) to engage in INSTRUMENTAL goals at least 85% of the time and expressive goals at most 15% of the time.
Someone’s post at PhinsheD inadvertently reminded me of that. It is to the fore of my thinking again, which is good. 🙂 Really good. I have expressed my personhood enough. Time to get stingier with time and make sure that each passing day means my word count was upped SIGNIFICANTLY. This means not thinking too, too, TOO much and being genuine in getting “g’nuff” (i.e. good enough) drafts done. Slight revising and editing can be done later if just need be. Yup!
