Up till yesterday, I was just envious of anyone who had managed to get started. I was also thinking that they are over-achievers, since the conference is late this year, starting days after my grades are due, so I don’t have the usual DO ALL THE THINGS time-crunch.
(There was a year when I had my paper finished in April, so I’m capable of being an over-achiever. Sometimes.)
But now I have about 1300 words down, and if I go on this vein, I too will have to cut back. Or not: I’m scheduled for Sunday morning, so what are the odds that someone else on the panel will oversleep or have to scoot off to the airport?
