Right now, the big thing I have been struggling with, dissertation-wise, has been overcoming the sense of stasis that my month-long break from writing the Disgrace chapter has brought into my life. I keep feeling as if I have forgotten where I was going or what I was going to say, though I don't think this is really the case. Still, that's where a good deal of the anxiety I have been feeling while preparing to finish up the chapter seems to originate. It's times like this, too, that I grow frustrated with myself for taking so long to finish the dissertation, even though a year-and-a-half of work is hardly out of the ordinary for someone to get through the amount of stuff I have done. It's not always easy to remember that, though.
For tomorrow: Keep reviewing.
