Slow writing week

July 08, 2005

It has been a slow writing week, both for the blog and for the dissertation.

I am busy pounding my way through a retelling of Revolution of 1800 and its effects on American Civil Religion. The earlier draft was condemned by my advisor for containing good ideas buried under dead, repetitive prose.

He was right. I think I had tried to start that section half a dozen times, given up, and just pasted the various introductions together as if they were a subsection.

So, I scrapped it and am rewriting from scratch. It goes slowly.

And now to go re-read Wigger's book on Methodists to see if the comparison I am making in this paragraph is accurate.
