    Sobriquet 40.9

    Tuesday, March 11, 2008
    Again, I am going to have to keep tonight's entry short. I haven't quite finished the reading I'd set aside for today and, as it is approaching two in the morning, I'd like to wrap it up so that I can get to bed.

    At any rate, I have been procrastinating a bit more lately than I have in quite some time. I'm not sure why I am having as much trouble bearing down as I am, but I suspect it is the result of one or more of the following factors:

    1. I haven't taken a day off since early December and, really, could use a long rest.

    2. Approaching mid-semester, I find I am tired and a bit more restless after half a term of grading and waking up at ungodly hours of the morning.

    3. I caught a whiff of Spring earlier this week and kinda-sorta wanna go play outside.

    4. I am nearing the writing phase again and, as I was in the days and weeks leading up to the time I spent writing my Age of Iron chapter, am full of doubts and anxieties regarding the feasibility of writing a whole chunk of the dissertation on The Master of Petersburg.

    5. I have been relaxing and socializing a bit more lately and, like a drought-parched field sprinkled with rain, I ache for more, more, more...

    Whatever the case happens to be, though, I will continue doing what I have been doing, embracing the lag as part of the whole experience...irritating as it may be.

    For tomorrow: Read more of In the Heart of the Country and reread a bit more of the criticism on The Master of Petersburg.

  1. wanna go play outside. :) Your phrasing on that made me smile.

    As for the rest of the procrastination/anxiety/doubts...take a deep breath and exhale slowly. Do it a couple of times. Everything will be OK, I promise.
