I'm feeling in fairly good shape as far as work is concerned at the moment. I have a schedule to tide me through a summer of producing many rough chapter drafts, and it even includes a week off for vacation, and a reduced writing load in late July and early August to take into account the summer Latin class. I've just sent off the very short version of my Avista paper for likely publication and it's well edited because for one of the first times ever, C. felt he understood the paper and could get alot out of it. The only down side to this is that it might mean my rough drafts really do require a full 8 to 10 revisions in order to make them right and well-written. I'm mostly done preparing a job application which needs to be turned in this week. I can check out library books again. And Gavin wrote back to set up times to read Latin together this summer. For now, at least, it's all working out.
