Okay, so I have a paper to give on Friday. I wrote it, but I didn’t like it, so I spent this week totally rewriting it. I’ve got it into a close approximation of reasonable now.
And then I opened my computer and looked for new CFPs.
I don’t have any reason to do that.
I have another paper due next week of which I have two pages written. I should really get cracking on that.
I have an article in revision (for the third or fourth time) which is due after next weekend.
I am out of town this weekend at a conference. I am out of town next weekend at a conference.
I am teaching six composition courses, all of which have grading I need to do, I am sure. So… Why am I looking for something else to write?
My husband would say it is because I am an addict.
He may be right.
