I know I haven’t written anything in a long time, but some major productivity has been happening. I’m on the verge of completing one chapter and sending it to my advisor:) And I’m about to begin another one. If I could do one chapter a month until May then I could probably finish the whole diss this semester. Or at least have a draft. If I keep my nose to the grindstone, which I plan to do, I could probably finish something sooner. So things are moving along.

Now I’m just worried about next year. I applied to one consortium for consideration as a predoctoral fellow, and to a fellowship at my home institution. But that’s about it…I kind of dropped the ball on the fellowship applications. I did apply to one job, and I got a conference interview and a campus interview. But the other contenders for the job are some heavy hitters. They already have articles in big places, etc. So, I face the fear of having nothing next year. But I’m just trying to work through the fear and finish and see what the next step is.
