Friday, 29 September

Time, I suppose, that I submitted another proper update.

As it is, the study to which I have devoted this Blog in the last nine months is 95% finished. My five chapters, Introduction, Conclusion, Bibliography and so forth are all written and require only finishing touches before I can call it complete. These finishing touches, though, represent all the painful little jobs that I’ve postponed doing for some time now [double-checking references, finalising translations, that sort of thing] and could take up an indefinite amount of time before I submit. Who was it that said you never finish a piece of work, but rather you abandon it..?

My aim is to have everything I can corrected, polished and finalised by the time I meet with Andrew on Tuesday afternoon to discuss the work I’ve done over the summer. As the sum total of that represents over 12,000 words of my study, there could be any amount still to do after we meet before I can finally put it in to be bound. The deadline for submission is actually tomorrow [September 30] but by virtue of being a Research student I’m actually given a whole year’s grace period to play with. Still, barring any significant delays I’m hopeful I’ll be rid of all this within three or four weeks…
