Pass the Wine!

We had our first rental inspection this morning. You'd think after sixteen years of rental inspections we'd have become a bit more blasé about it all, but there is just something about a stranger walking through your house, scrutinising your furnishing and making a value you judgement about how clean and neat and careful your are that puts a person on edge.

As well as this, I had my first supervisor meeting with my primary supervisor in seven months, today <--- awkward="" beyond="" but="" demands="" editing="" frankly="" hmmm="" i="" m="" of="" p="" quite="" sentence="" that="" the="" today.="" was="">
Anyway, I think we were both a bit freaked out by my seeming lack of ability to settle on an underpinning theory. I really wish I could be one of those people who could know which theory best applies to my work, but I have been a writing practitioner all my life, and despite my degrees in writing, I haven't had a lot of experience with theories. Or maybe I've had sufficient exposure but just don't think laterally enough to know how to bend a theory to my will, I don't know.

Anyway, after today's meeting we have a plan....

Draft of chapter 2 by the end of April
Draft of chapter 3 by the end of July
Finish all of section one creative work by the end of July
Twenty flashes while in Iceland in Aug/Sept
Forty flashes between Sept and January
Redraft chapter 1 in January
Redraft entire work between February and June

Easy, right?

Also, this made me laugh...
