This could be a good sign, or a sign that my work is being swamped by grant writing considerations.
Hopefully, at the end of today, when I hand over grant writing operations to another RA, that will be the end of it and I can work unimpeded on my PhD until its completion in 2012. Aside from some singing teaching.
I’m getting excited and nervous about it, because I am enjoying this year so much I don’t want it to end, but also concerned that I am running out of time to finish!
Thank goodness for my writing retreat: one at present, one in July, one in September and the next will be from January 2012. These retreats will include no other work at all. This is my promise to myself!
Plus some important conference papers to write and an article or two. I’m aiming for three articles over the next 18 months, and four conferences. That should see me through.
