This afternoon is the time of the Big Paper Sort. This is when I take stock of all my notes for all my projects and I discover just how far I have to go. So far, I have more to do on the Lanagan and on my review articles than I thought (because I lost a lot of their workslots this last fortnight to this dratted pain) but I'm far more advanced on the dissertation. I have all the notes for the Douglass piece and just have to spend a half hour typing and checking, which will be this evening. The Beast is mostly where the Beast should be - I have three big datasets to look at, but everything else is pretty much where it ought to be, I think.
The reason the Big Paper Sort is today, is because this coming week is all about taxes and annual reports. If I have my regular notes floating around, I might miss something crucial for the others. Besides, it was about time I sat down in my comfy chair, with stacks of paper next to me and a flat surface before me and much SF TV informing my interpretation of my notes.
