Bluebeard Mini Dissertation - Day 3

Yesterday, I reappraised the Bluebeard PP and started to plan out both sections of the project (2,500 x 2 = 1 mini diss).  There is just under 1,000 words in the first section and about 450 words in the second. My Lacan and Focault books have arrived and I am still awaiting the Maria Tartar book.  Plus, I have at least 3 academic essays and a history book to plough through.  I am trying to remind myself that I am writing an English essay, not a Psychology one (though there are elements, bearing in mind I am using psychoanalytical theory as one Lit Crit source), nor a history one.  It is pretty easy to catalogue in both Psy and History - with English, you have to evolve your arguments, whilst still being in first person/past tense.

I am present bloody tense at the moment - hoping that the postie will bring wonderous things.

I have slung everyone out of the office and I have turned on my Brown Noise/Classic FM combo to shut the world out.  I feel like I am writing with my main lecturer sitting on my shoulder and I am trying not to self edit until I am done explaining my main objectives.

The Maria Tartar book has turned up, so yay for me :-)

I have forgotten just how messy this can be. It's one giant knitting project that has to be unravelled before it can be weaved into something acceptable.

I have been granted a reprieve from my main lecturer, who has said that I can do the IAS PP Monday week.  Just as well - I reached over 1,130 words on part 1 odf the project, but it is clear that I will have to do some reading, or I can't make the arguments stick.

PS - The weather has been crap.  It has been gorgeous til now, but we have forecast back-to-back wet grey cardboard weather.  I want out.  I want to see people, sunshine and grass; hear the return of the birds and live life through a lens for a while.  Not for me, at least not yet.  I have to catch up :-/
