A chapter here, a chapter there

June 28, 2004

A chapter here, a chapter there, pretty soon you are talking about a lot of pages.

I ran the revised 5 chapter version past my advisor last week. He got back to me over the weekend, and after further review I am moving back to a four chapter organization.

I am not getting rid of the new chapter, instead I am folding a lot of the material from the previous chapter into it. If it had been 1,2,3,4 and then 1, 2a, 2b, 4, 5 where 2a looks liked the bulk of the previous 2 and 2b is the coda expanded, now I am looking at 1, 2b, 3, 4 where the concept for the second chapter is the concept for 2b, but much of the material will be drawn from 2a and revised to fit the organization and assumptions of 2b.

Was that completely obscure?

No wonder it takes me a long time to get anything done - I spend weeks writing, then tear it down and do it again, and again, and again ...
