Monday: No paper written. No paper started. I had lots of notes, lots of articles, lots of outlines, lots of concern... April 1 deadline loomed.
Tuesday: No writing. Driving children in every direction times two.
Wednesday: Reading for class. No writing. Suffering the agon of medieval theology.
Thursday: I met with my advisor. I hoped for good news.
He delivered. He had read the paper I wrote on Bonhoeffer three years ago and loved it! He told me to drop the comparison to James Cone and stick with DB. That means I only need to extend the 22 page paper to 30 (which I'm working on now). Went home that night with 28 and a half pages completed.
Friday: Spent the morning tweaking the paper to suit the expanded thesis. Feels really good and I will easily be done by Monday (April 1 deadline rolled over to Monday). Phew! May 19 is starting to appear around the corner.
