I’m now 28 pages into an article that I wanted to be around 25 pages long, and I’ve got at least another 5 pages of analysis and conclusion to write before the thing is complete. Annoyingly, the first 20-ish pages of the article hold together pretty darn well — ideas move from one section to the next in what seems to be a fairly logical progression — and then in the last six pages (of what I’ve written, that is) it begins to crumble a bit.
I just want to be done with this article. I’ve got two more things that I really have to get written before the end of August, and I can’t get going on them until this is done already.
End whinge. Back to work.
