I have been approved to take two weeks off from work in March to do nothing but dissertate. There is simply no other way to get anything done without just breaking it all off from the world like that and focusing.
So, between now and then I must get all the codes in order, attach codes to the text, and be prepared to really just knock out most of that chapter. I realize it's not all going to get done during this time, but if the bulk of it is, then I'll be in good shape to edit out the crap and have something decent to chair with DC in early April.
Sounds like a decent plan for now. Off to wrestle The Longest Code List in the World down to something swallowable.
