Doh! I'm well known for having a penchant for talking too much, but rarely am i able to write SO SO much!
Soon after devising a question 'Does the development of freestanding sculpture from the Archaic to the Hellenistic age reflect the social and political climate of the age?' It dawned on me that i'd have to ostracize the women from this essay (familiar story I know!) and concentrate only on the male figure. The worry that might limit me is now made obselete by the fact that I have managed to write 6,776 words on the Classical era alone, 11,459 in total so far with 103 footnotes among which I have not even added the ones for the figures 9over 50!)!!!!!!
Whats more i still have the largest chapter to write, the dreaded Hellenistic one, and also an intro and conclusion which will be at least 2,000 words!
Whichever way u add this up, whats blatantly obvious to me is that im gonna have to castrate and tear my baby limb from limb at some point – boohoooooooooo!
For now at least I have my beautiful boy as consolation to gaze at and seeing that the poor sod is already missing two arms and half a leg, hopefully I wont have to cut him down to size any more – no wonder he looks so glum!!!
I will determine to be inspired by the vid Eleanor pointed me to, where the guy squishes the 10 yr Odyssey in to 14.8 seconds! We live in hope!
