Awal Gomla!

The first sentence of my dissertation is complete.  Actually more like the first paragraph, which is pretty exciting because I've been putting of the actual writing for a while.  I have been working, on both analyzing data and arranging my technology for the writing process (more on this later), but I haven't been writing.  Finally, I decided that even if I wasn't done analyzing, there were still parts I could write, and so I should get moving, as I'm hoping to graduate in May, which means I really need to be done with my first draft by November or December.  This is doable, but I need to focus, and possibly spend a little less time dancing.

  1. Mabruk! The first paragraph is the hardest, sometimes.

    I have to admit, as someone who has been writing since, er, 2009, the idea of doing all the writing in a year has been throwing me--but then again, I bounced back and forth between collection and writing, so I had a weird plan.

    Dancing is a good distraction, though. I've taken up needlework just as I've started thinking about revising my final draft. Hobbies are useful at times like this...
