The disseration draft is done.

What that means:

It's over 500 pages. I know. Ridiculous.

Over half of it has already been approved by my two co-chairs.

My other two committee members have just started reading it, plus I have the final chapters and conclusions to be read by all.

There will be about a month now of feedback and revisions. I will file, if everything goes according to plan, the first week of August.

P.S. The look on my face in the photo -- me by my laptop open to my best sentence of the day blog, where I have just posted my last best sentence of the day... that is the face of a woman who just finished writing and emailing off the final chapters five minutes ago. i think it is a look of blank stunned exhaustion. I have worked 7 days a week since late January, my writing hours went from 12 a day up to 7 AM to 1 AM over the last few weeks, and if you want to know what I am doing tomorrow, I will tell you:

--drinking champagne, possibly all four bottles that we currently have in our refrigerator, WHILE
--cleaning the apartment!!! WOO!! you have no idea how much I have been wanting to do both these things. now i shall do them at the same time. possibly while playing the battlestar gallactica soundtrack and the hannah montana themesong.

Gee, Jane, you sure are inspiring. I finished one semester in Masters in Teaching English and gave up because I didn't have time. Now, you're showing me how. Kudos!
