It is inevitable that I would mention my dissertation every now and then. Or I’ll call it the D word, if it would keep my heart rate steady when I have too much of it. I will, of course, do my best to keep the D word to a minimum.
Today we attended a lecture that got us talking to one another about what we intend to write about. Finding people with roughly similar interests helped. Until recently I was a little freaked out, although it was partially because of my difficulty in securing a supervisor. It took two rejection-filled weeks; at least it’s all sorted now.
My excitement might not come across right now because I’ve been on campus from 10am to 9pm, but I’m looking forward to writing on the Gothic in Roald Dahl’s adult fiction.
