    Sobriquet 49.10: One Year In . . .

    Tuesday, December 9, 2008
    So, today is the 365th day of my dissertation project and, to mark this ignominious day, I would like to do another rundown post like the one I wrote back in June:

    Blog Posts: 328.

    J. M. Coeztee Books Read: 10 1/2, plus sections of White Writing and Inner Workings.

    Total Books Finished: 35.

    Critical Essays Read: Well over two hundred.

    Chapters Written: Two, but none in the last six months (thanks to the amazingly large pile of criticism on Disgrace).

    Computers Used: Three.

    Computers Killed: One.

    Cars Wrecked: One.

    Courses Taught: Twelve.

    Coetzee Novels Taught: One.

    Literary Critics That Have Contacted Me: Four.

    Libraries Used: More than twenty.

    Articles Published: Two.

    Articles Published on Coetzee: One.

    "Fans" in the Sobriquet Magazine Fan Club: Nine.

    Best Place to Work on Dissertation: Ithaca Falls, Ithaca, NY.

    Least Pleasant Place to Have Worked on Dissertation: Emergency Room at the Community Medical Center, Scranton, PA.

    Sense of Accomplishment: Greater than in June, though the effect is blunted by the sheer length of time I have had to spend preparing for the chapter on Disgrace.

    As far as today goes, I will try to read a bit of The Rights of Desire before hitting the hay.

    For tomorrow: Read or transcribe, as usual.

    I love your lists. :) Lists almost always make me smile or giggle. YAY!
