Feeling oddly…good about my various writing projects. There’s still (a lot of) work to be done, but at the moment it seems doable.

Going to try to carry this forward for both my own stuff and for ongoing advocacy work.


The most recent episode of Welcome to Night Vale is an impressive piece of horror short fiction that serves as a superb example of the power of second person narration.

This continuing series of spam text messages attempting to sell me CBD oil gives me that nice warm fuzzy feeling that someone, somewhere cares about me enough as a potential dupe to code a program to contact me at least three times a week from multiple phone numbers.

Tonight’s film: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

I always appreciate the feeling of hitting a snag in the writing process, letting it sit for a couple days, and then coming back to find that some part of my brain has solved the problem in the interim.

Thunderstorm. Yes.

More words happened today!

Struggling mightily not to name this section of the chapter “What is form and why does it matter?”

This morning’s work: give myself an abbreviated crash course on the history of philosophical debates about form, then (hopefully intelligibly) write about form in archaeology.

I have written more words! And some of them might even be good.

This morning’s work is interesting, since I’m mostly bolting together paragraphs that I’ve already written into a new order. Hopefully it’ll still flow together.

Stayed up until 1:30 last night because I started reading and only resurfaced once I’d finished the entire second half of a book. I’d missed that feeling.

Now: coffee.

Apparently what I’ve really been craving today is blueberries. Just a whole bunch of blueberries.

It’s taking me a while to warm up to today’s writing, but I think I’m getting there.

Two abstracts and some other assorted verbiage for another project.

Maybe someday I won’t feel utterly exhausted by 1pm.

Made it to my word count goal for the day. Now if I can just manage similar successes on 5 out of the next 6 days, things will be looking up.

This morning’s goal is to write another 750-1000 words of this thesis chapter.

It’s always the right time to rewatch Kung Fury.

Rain, glorious rain!

I’m pleasantly surprised by the fact that I already have responses to two research-related requests that I sent last night.

I am slowly learning to love DOIs.

Awake, but already planning a nap.

Didn’t see the comet, but we did see a suburban fox out on its nightly roaming.

Working plan for today: hunker down and (re)read more key sources, with the goal of spending most of tomorrow writing.
