I am officially declaring January 11-23 National Thesis Drafting Fortnight. Between today and next Friday, I need to write the (solid) first draft of my thesis. I estimate that I should write 5 double spaced or 2 1/2 single spaced or 1250 words per day. This is roughly consistent with – if not a little under – the average writing days for NaNoWriMo – except, you know, I get a grade at the end.
So guys, please keep me honest here. I need to get this shit done, and I’m pretty motivated – I’m just having a hard time getting started, and I’m awfully anxious about the end product. I have fun things planned for my birthday weekend, but I also need to get a whole lot done on this thing so that I can enjoy it (the weekend, not the thesis).
Stay tuned for word count updates and other procrastination devices – and most of all, wish me luck!
