It is not until I read part of the mini diss to an 'informed friend' that I realise just how much more work/clarification is needed. I know if I can make this argument work, then I will be very proud of my achievements. Things hang in the balance - like not a lot of time to pull this off.
Lillies are relevent - thematic in Carter's book.
If I am successful in what I am undertaking, this could be my best piece of work yet. Or, it could be 'just ok' and I suffer what i term to be the 'Wuthering Heights Effect' circa January 2013.
I am feeling the strain a bit. I have worked very hard today and I am actually feeling a little sick. I will plough on for now, but might just call it a day if I don't feel I am getting anywhere. I DO feel that I have constructed the argument well enough, of which this the whole premiss of this assignment hangs on.
I am absolutely doubled up, but I have finished the first full draft of the mini diss - all 5,333 words of it. Am leaving it for a day before I cut swathes into and/or add academic 'sprinkles' but for now, I am done with it.
