First of all, I think it's hilarious that I get more comments and suggestions on my rice cooker posts than on most of my academic-style stuff. Still thinking about what that tells me about potential job directions. And I will give you an update on all your suggestions when I switch back from leftovers to cooking again soon.
Anyway, Floyd ---- who gets a name since I don't want to tell you my topic and I have had so many new articles that at some point "my new article" doesn't really tell you much about anything. You might remember that I announced the birth of Floyd not too long ago, and I have been working with him steadily ever since, so I thought I would give a little note of progress.
So here is Floyd. I have been writing for about a month and a half, with some time out for finals and a conference. In my last announcement, he was about 5 pages.
Here is Floyd's growth update:
Now he is about 32 pages, but the last 6 are still in the question/quote/note form without any complete sentences. I haven't worked on those last 6 at all yet. He has six subsections (including the intro and conclusion subsection) and once I work my way through the last section and throw together the intro and conclusion I'll have a complete draft!
Wait, what? Why do people keep saying that, "a face only a mother could love," when I show off Floyd??? Are you saying my ideas are half-baked? That my complete draft might have a long long way to go before it actually looks like a draft?
I'm hurt. See if I let Floyd feast on your corpse when you turn into bloated carrion. So there!
