Just passed the 4,000 word threshold on Chapter Three, although it's a sucktastic first draft - albeit one that sucks slightly less than the first drafts for previous chapters. And even though it's quick and dirty to write - I mean, it is academic smut after all - I've had a cold the past few days that make writing every sentence a rather painful experience. So tomorrow, cold or not, I may trek out to Panera, and see if I can bang out at least 500 more words, which shouldn't be too strenuous, especially not with their free refills on coffee - and will put me at just over fifteen pages. And after this, only two more chapters left, and then my intro and conclusion. It should seem like so little but sadly it doesn't - especially once I get a part-time job to go with the internship. If only I could zip back to London and find my incredible work ethic! But these 4,000 words have all come since Thursday, so I shouldn't be too disappointed in myself - yet.

Ugh, took a quick walk with my mom and now I is ded. Bed sounds even more appealing now...

I don't know what it was about England, but I wrote soooooooo much over there (and I actually liked what I wrote too!). But now that I'm back, I swear everything I write has been as hard as extracting teeth! I don't understand... But I'm very impressed at your progress on your thesis thus far! Congrats and good luck finishing up this chapter (and the rest of the chapters after that).

And get better soon!!!

I guess that's a small stroke of luck for me. I've never been to England, so there's no worry about geographically induced writers block... However, lately, I've been on a roll!
