Milestone Ahoy!

I can see it! I can see the end of the first draft of my first dissertation chapter! It's looming just over there at the horizon . . .

Hurrah!

But easy does it, sailor. Don't scare it off...

Never fear. As soon as I saw it coming last night, I simply laid a trap (wrote the bold-font "Conclusions" header), baited it (wrote the first sentence of the conclusions section), and backed off to lie in wait. I'll pounce when that conclusions chapter is all nice and lulled and isn't looking.

Thank you! I think I'll likely be able to hit my goal of having a workable first draft of this chapter completed by the end of the month.

Is it like jam tomorrow, though? Or the end of the rainbow?

No - you'll get there!

Sometimes it really feels like jam tomorrow! But then, suddenly, you reach the point where you have nothing left to write, and you realize that, against all the odds -- it's done!

It feels exciting, like the next urge to dissertate might see a milestone.
