Thought I'd write creatively too - as this often helps my academic work. Started work on a non-fiction picture book I've been planning in my head for a couple of years.Read and stalked possible theoretical frameworks and academics for PhD supervision. Worked on a conference abstract for a 2015 conf. on Alice in Wonderland - worked on writing questions to interview illustrators about their versions of 'Alice' building on work previously done with illustrators.Better late than never to B'go Shut Up & Write session. Wrote for 90 mins (with 5 mins break every 30 mins). Nearly finished an abstract for a conference paper next year (My mother left me for the Sea: Selkie adaptations and what they say about "Liberty or Death"). Not relevant to my Bruce Whatley work, but I was still offday offSaturdayFollowing trail of another PhD scholarship. Reading up about 'Radical' children's literature, and some of the key theorists in this field. Interesting work & concepts.

Kim Baston (I do not tweet) and Drama (HUSS) BundooraWrite first draft of journal article on music in the early modern circus, 6000 wordsWrite for minimum of one hour in the morning before checking emails. 500 words a day.Use 1 hour in the afternoon to reference, fact check and plan draft2,788 dirty words written (started last week)Golden hour not achieved till 5 pm, due to admin and diversion down research gap rabbit hole. 547 words, dirty, very dirty, but done400 words in golden 45 mins.Achieved no writing, lunch , dinner or understanding of reflexive verbs in elementary Spanish class. A write-off450 slow, slow words. Need more data analysisUp to 4600 words. Will get to 5000 and then do 1st reverse outline and editCan't write on Tuesdays as still teachingDragged kicking and screaming over 5000 word line. Now will excavate all my three desks from piles of paper- the academic equivalent of tidying the sock drawer, ready for 1st reverse outline tomorrowReverse outline doneLet outline marinate, construct bibliography and try and find that blasted reference I read two years ago and now need and can't findW/endW/endDay off. re-reading Joseph Williams great book on writing: Style: Toward Clarity and Grace. Teaching day, no writingWibbled and dibbled, and procrastinated - so much for clarity and grace1700 quite clean words today. Unfortunately on topic that was only meant to be a short paragraph. Continued paragraph which has now expanded to 2500 words, leading me to suspect this is another paper entirely. But can't stop myself.Continued with paragraphTeaching - final day for year, no writingMarking, no writingFinished marking, continued paragraph which is now up to 4700 words, but is finished for time being. Sent paragraph to potential Canadian research project. Summary: Have achieved first draft of intended article, 5700 words, and now beginning the long process of shaping and redrafting which will take me probably till end January. Unintentional paragraph which I think will become basis for another paper in future, 4700 words. I am actually surprised at how much I've achieved in a month. The public declaration of intent, and keeping a diary, has been an excellent spur - if only because of making me very aware of what I am actually doing during a day. Good process. To reward myself I'm taking the afternoon off to go and actually play some music instead of writing about it.

HUSS, English (Bundoora)Plan three articles, draft twoWriting/research every Monday (part-time only)Not quite.Planned pitches, organised resources and brain (after a few months on other projects)This would all be so much easier if it wasn't for the rest of life.Conference paper accepted for ANZAMEMS in July 2015 - helps focus the mind on the topic, and re-order priorities. I have the start of a paper. Words - not so many. Yet.Worked on edits for re-submission of a group paper.  Had 2 golden hours in middle of day and more later in evening. Need sleep. (This wasn't my entry, but I'll take it.)A productive day. Two X two Golden hours and then some, plus a mentoring session to help out a NaNoWriMo participant. I'm going to act like all those chunks copied and pasted from my thesis count. I defy you to sort the new from the old. Words so far: 9500.Worried a bit. Achieved little.Good progress. Two X two Golden Hours. One article for Opera Quarterly at final draft stage, minus faffing about trying to make EndNote do what I want it to do. Leaving it to stew in its own juice, and going on to the next. Switching topics and disciplines. Upgraded Endnote. All my references fell out of the article I'd just finished.OK. Upshot: Finished one article, plotted out another, faffed about a lot with EndNote, had a good time. Thanks. Just going to pretend it's still November for the next couple of weeks.
