238-page draft of dissertation (sans references, appendices, and everything i’ll be asked to add and/or elaborate) to adviser. (would put this on the academic blog, except it broke, and everybody with any clue how to fix it has been too busy)

going to bed now.

So confused. How do you write without including references as you go?

ok, you’re right, that was unclear–sans some references, i.e. the stuff my committee’s “suggested” i read since i started drafting that i haven’t read yet & so need to read & then go back & add-in.
not sans all references; a great many are already included, although not as many as you’d think, since 1 of the chapters is built around a finite set of 6 texts and two of them are built around close-readings of student- and teacher-written documents & don’t cite any published sources (& only a few show up in the conclusion, most of them things already referenced before), so my working bib is only 5 pages long right now.

Congrats!! That’s awesome! I can’t even imagine writing something 38 pages, let alone adding any number in front of that! So I think this is amazing that you could! πŸ™‚

Wow
Double-wow.
And ahead of (tentative summer) schedule?
Is someone going to buy you drinks tonight? I would, but I don’t think virtual Scotch whisky would do you much good.

Re: Wow
she said by the 1st. i told her it would be done. it’s not yet the first, but i’m less than a week out and i’m not completely sure there wasn’t something else i was also supposed to do by then, so…
anyway. yes. there it is. virtual scotch would probably do me more good than actual scotch, but it would be less fun, you’re right. i’m having dinner and tea with your girls tonight, actually. maybe we’ll spike it. πŸ˜‰
