This is what it looks like.
Excuse my silence as of late. This is my thesis writing semester, and my posts will be, at best, erratic. I have to catch my writing waves when I can, but channel them all towards finishing this project. However, I thought I’d share a glimpse of what my work space (aka the kitchen table) looks like. I am not, as you can see, meticulous about my work space, but there is a system, of sorts, in that tangle. And out of it will emerge, someday soon I hope, a completed project.
And just for fun, here is some book and writing related links. These will have a limited appeal, I’m sure, but now you know what this literature major thinks is interesting.
