(That is, of course, minus revisions of this final chapter, revisions that the rest of the committee will ask for, revisions I dream up in the middle of the night....)
But still. Monday, January 25th, 11:53:04pm, I pressed "save" and committed myself to sending out this draft of the last chapter and conclusion to Professor Fahey, and that really feels like ... something. If I wasn't so tired from the last three weeks (in which I've written ... okay, 72 academic pages), I might be able to say exactly what it feels like. In lieu of that, I feel like having a cold drink, watching a bit of a movie until the adrenaline fades, and then passing out.
