50 Day Question Challenge 2016 - Day 30



30. Do you believe in second chances?
Yes, I believe in benefit of the doubt, especially if it is someone you love.  However, it takes an awful amount of work and it rather depends on the person who needs the second chance and the person of whom they are asking that chance from. If you are person a) then try not to mess person b) around again; however, if you are person b) stop harping on about how person a) let you down in the first place.  It is an agreement that both have to honour.  It might be the case of 'fool me once, shame on you - fool me twice, shame on me', but I think it's worth it.  Don't go there the third time.

Major Dissertation Intro & Chapter 1 Overhaul - Day 2



I have been up since 06:00 this morning and for an inveterate night owl, this is not good.  Sun hasn't long come up and it's 3c (37.4f) out there - didn't feel quite that cold.  Why am I even up at this time?? Oh yeah, I remember - DEADLINES!

Finished rewriting introduction, need to lop off a surplus 400 words.  For now, moved on to chapter 1.

Rewriting chapter one isn't as easy as I thought - an enormous amout of signposting and lit crit jargonese and essays need to be put in and then pared back.  Crosseyed and crabby; have had to cancel meet ups and possibly an important dinner out on Wednesday afternoon, as I think I might be on the 06:36 to Plymouth, in order to get assignment in before midday deadline.  No room for manouevre - curses!

I am about half way on the rewrite of chapter 1.  All in all, not a bad day's work. Leaving this dad in the water til early tomorrow.
