I’m having a bit of trouble pulling my paper together for the conference next week. It’s a shorter version of a chapter I wrote last fall, so it’s not like I need to come up with a new idea, but writing in short stints when Katherine is sleeping (for 5 minutes? 20? 40? you never know) is a bit tricky. In the midst of my revisions I got an email from my advisor, letting me know she’d see me at the conference–and at my panel. I suppose I’m grateful that she’s going to hear my talk, but knowing that is not making the revisions any easier!
