The first few days I zipped through 1 and 2. After a week, plus, I had finished 7, 8, and 9. Now, 5.5 weeks into my list, I have finished 3 and 4 as well. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, and 9 are completed. That leaves 5 and 6 to do in the next 2 weeks.
Just in case you are wondering, I am absolutely getting burnt out. I have four relatively short projects due in the next two months and I am seriously considering stopping with those.
1- Book review. Complete and published.
2- Article on promotion/publishing. Complete.
3- Shakespeare friendship article.Â Complete.
4- Religion in speculative fiction paper.Â Complete and have presented.
5- OE Judith, epic. (2 page outline, 500 pages of articles collected, a draft of about 1/3 of the paper complete.) BAD NEWS: The main point I wanted to make with this paper seems to have already been done. So, I have to figure out another way to go. …Such is life. This is the paper that I am giving next Friday at 8 am, if you happen to be in Austin for the Texas Medieval Association.
6- Sookie Stackhouse as gothic. (Books read. Some articles collected. Thought about.)
7- Adjunct article. Completed three different versions at the request of the editor. I don’t know whether the final one was accepted, though I hope so. There are two more weeks till it is due at the publishers. So I assume I will know soon.
8- Medical health contribution. Complete and rejected.
9- Proposal for national conference. Complete. I hope it is accepted. It is a unique topic that most people have not dealt with, probably because it is difficult to talk about.
In addition, I have sent out another series of poems to a journal, sent two papers as proposals to a regional conference that I adore (and rescinded one after I found out that I could only submit one), and graded some more papers.
