I am about to email my advisor a promise that I will send an article draft to her this Tuesday.
But, I don't feel very brave today, so I call Jo (who is catsitting across town this morning) for a much needed mini pep talk.
Me: I am about to send this email. Should I send it? Am I nuts?
Jo: Well, can you get it done by Tuesday? Why Tuesday?
Me: Tuesday because if I don't get it done I will never be able to really let prelim studying take over my life... and I think I can get it done. I mean, I do get a lot of the hard writing work done if I sit done for a couple days and just do it? Right?
Jo: Yes, you always do get a lot done in 2 days when you sit down and do it. We only have to pick up our vegetables later and then you have the rest of the weekend to work. Be brave. Just send her the email.
Okay, okay. I just sent it. I am going to take a shower, eat something, and then plunge into the abyss of working on my own writing...
