Wow, it’s been a month. I can’t believe it has been that long. The school year has started and I’ve been trying to finish up a chapter. I can’t believe how painful it has been. I spend all day and write maybe two pages and I hate it all the next day. At least I have almost a complete draft, even if it still has to be revised a few hundred times.
I have also started teaching Writing 2. It’s a freshman composition course required by the university. It’s been kind of fun, but it is tricky to teach a course you’ve never taught before and not quite what you expected to teach. It is certainly rather different from teaching a history class. We spend a lot of time doing exercises and whatever random thing I can think of the night before. I also still owe the English Broadside Ballad Archive some hours.
I was going to post more, but I don’t really wnat to discuss Writing 2 or my dissertation anymore right now. I think it’s time for a violent movie.
