Last week, well… we’ll call it a rebuilding week? No one reported their goals here, but hopefully everyone had a productive week! Check out this essay by Joyce Carol Oates on how running informs her writing process. Do you use non-writing diversions to spur along your writing process? Let us know that, and your goals for the upcoming week, in the comments below!
Dan: This week takes me back to France and back to teaching, so one of my goals for this week is to get all of the grading that I’ve been putting off while I’ve been in the U.S. out of the way. I also need to get all of the cosmetic revisions of my dissertation done, as well as an overhaul of my dissertation introduction, all so that I can file by my November 27th deadline. Oh, and I have a job application done and submitted on Tuesday. Okay! And… go.
