Progress on my writing

Monday, July 05, 2010

I know yesterday was the 4th of July, and I should have been out celebrating. I like fireworks and all, but I have got to get this dissertation finished. There are way too many other things I want to be doing.

So I spent a big part of the weekend writing. And I am thrilled to have made as much progress as I did. Not only did I get some writing done, I also managed to weed out some of the research I don't really need. I have to say that tossing out some of that stuff felt just as good as getting words on paper--or rather, on the computer screen. What is even better is that I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel for this chapter. Believe me, I am thrilled!

But this also reminded me that I don't have to be doing what everyone else expects me to do. Everyone wanted me to go here or there and celebrate. But I needed to do something else for me, and I did. And it felt good! So I hope you all had a great day yesterday, whether you were celebrating the 4th in the US or just enjoying the day no matter where you are! And I hope you did something for yourself--even if it was just for a few minutes.

As always, thanks for reading! Have an amazing day!!
