So I thought I was ahead of the game having written a paper a couple of years ago that I thought would be the first two-thirds of my MA thesis (which is not a dissertation and only has to be about 30 pages long). I'm writing about Dietrich Bonhoeffer and James Cone - how they understood conversion, Jesus Christ, discipleship in their historical moments. Then I'm taking the last third of the paper to do the same in our era using Elizabeth Johnson as one of my dialog partners in that section.
Turns out I need it done by April 1 to graduate with the May class. I so want to do that. I've asked for a leave of absence from my UPI Column and I'm not posting to forums or email lists during this month. I will update my blog and my photo blog because those are pleasurable breaks from writing.
Just thought you should know what's up. Yes, I'm feeling a bit intimidated suddenly. It took me far too long to write the six page paper due tonight which shook my confidence. And I still have papers to write for Doctrine 1 while I'm working on this thesis (not to mention managing my business which is really demanding right now).
Any advice for an intense writing season you can offer?
