back to work
I have sent a draft of chapters one and two to my adviser. I also sent a draft of a proposal, which he sent back -"you can do better than this" and "when you rewrite this... notice I didn't say edit"
Yeah, it has been one of those semesters. I know that I will finish this thing. I know it will be good when it is done. Right now I will offer a metaphor for my work... I have a beautiful piece of material - think a rich blue velvet and I know that it is going to make me something lovely to wear - but I am not sure/ready? to cut up the material and start sewing.... okay so let's go with that metaphor... is it that I don't know what I want to make or that I am afraid that by committing to one path I am deciding against another after all if I decide to make a dress then I can't make a cape (although I am not sure I would be happy with either one.) so today as I will attempt a new proposal and start to cut apart my material. It is hard to make decisions sometimes.
