Waiting

I really want to post the piece that I wrote for the museum but since it has not gone live on that blog yet I must be patient. Shame that because I don’t have a university email address I can’t get admin permission through the university blog hosting.
Must think about writing that article instead..
Re-editing one’s thesis into a journal style is an odd experience. Working hard to cut some of my waffle and make sure all of the internal references are coherent. I also have to concentrate on thinking of it as one point that I am making rather than as the broader series of insights that I was trying to relay in my thesis.

Works-in-Progress

I think I am busy trying to write too many things at once..

I have two main projects:
1. Research and organisation for a paper on Time-Travel and Roman Britain to be delivered at the end of June and hopefully to turn into a journal article…
2. Editing and splicing parts of my Thesis to make an acceptable publication.

I am also currently working on some informational blog posts for the Ure Museum which touch on Greek Archaeology and Art History and I should be writing research proposal/job applications to get me into regular paid employment.

My key problem is dividing my time and practicising focusing on one task at a time. So I want to use the process of putting ideas online to help me pin down specific tasks.
Right now I need to spend at least 2hours a day working on the thesis based article and to read one or two journal articles/chapters for the Time-travel paper.
This weekend I am also going to write a beautifully optimistic research proposal.
