I'm alive, and well, though busier than usual. Between work and church, I've managed to occupy most of my evenings for the past few weeks.
I had a conversation with the boss today that I hope will help me free up some time to work regularly on my dissertation. I negotiated a later work day so that I can spend 30 to 60 minutes each morning writing. The regular writing will help keep me moving, while larger blocks of time on free evenings and weekends will help me get bigger pieces done. The key for me is regular daily writing. I can't rely on using a big block of time here and there. It needs to become a habit. Attaching the writing time to my morning routine which I live by religiously should help with that, I hope.
I am working on a post about some things that have occupied my thoughts lately. I hope to have it up in a few days. Until then, I hope you all are well.
