I have a writing/deadline schedule from my thesis director:
Chapters One and Two: Nov 8th
Chapters Three-Five: Dec 8th
This schedule will get me done in time to spend about a month studying for comps and the French exam. Since I am a fast writer, the deadlines will be no problem at all. However, I am the Platonic Form of All Procrastination in the Known Universe. So, please pray for persistence in study, strength to write, and a sense of joy in what I am doing.
Knowing that I cannot start teaching again until I have the Ph.L. in hand is a great motivator to finish. Knowing that you are praying for me is greater still.
