I’m going to try posting here every day for the next month, and see what happens. Even when I think I have nothing to say — today, for example — I’m still going to suit up and show up.
Today, and for the next few days, I am working on my dissertation proposal. I figure I’ll give myself the rest of today and tomorrow to keep reading and taking notes, getting my thoughts in order. Then, come Tuesday, I’ll start writing. My first draft is due Friday morning.
Maybe it doesn’t have to be stressful. Maybe it doesn’t have to be so hard. After all, this is just a first draft. Maybe I can play with it. Maybe I can enjoy the process.
After all, I’m already in a spirit of experimentation.
