I finished the first (conference/seminar paper version) of this project last night. I feel good about where it is, for what it is, and I'm eager to work it into an article-length essay over the summer.
Unfortunately, I now have to spend the next three months revising my book manuscript.
And good God, people: the internet is boring when it's not part of an overcommitted day of furious multi-tasking. My only commitment is my writing. I have no meaningful distractions or diversions, and though I keep trying to invent them (first it was Etsy, for wedding-related shit, then it was Zappos and eBay for shoes, then it was Kayak for travel deals, and now, God help me, I'm browsing real estate listings), each distraction gives me about a day of pleasure--and then there's either nothing new to look at, or the new listings require all of 10 minutes to scrutinize.
I expect to be the most boring person alive for the next little while.
