LHA paper done

Finished my conference paper for the Louisiana Historical Association meeting this March. This is a relief, since my conference papers are always a chore, it seems; a chore because they always involve distilling and condensing my detailed, verbose dissertation prose. Tucking all the fun stuff away in the footnotes is one way to get it done. Anyway, nice to have done that; now I can finish this book review, and get on to Chapter 4.

Presenting … Ch. 3?!?!

I think I’m finished Chapter 3. It took almost two months longer than I wanted it to, and is much, much longer than I expected: 41 pages (with 11 point Times and 1.5 line spacing), almost 16,000 words. And, although it’s hard to say right now, I think it’s pretty good. Definitely more of an accomplishment than my first two chapters.
