I Will Finish This Book If It Kills Me...

All the revisions that I’ve been making to my book are killing me. Literally. There have been several nights over the last few weeks where I have sat up until 3 am redrafting things for like the hundredth time, trying to get it just right. I started working on this project in 2008 (after the initial brainstorming, applying for research grants, etc ... and it’s involved 6 months of research at the Folger Shakespeare Library in DC, 3 months of research at the Huntington Library in California, and then another 6 months of further research at various archives in the UK, followed by 2 years of writing to turn it into my doctoral dissertation and now a further 3 years of writing to go from dissertation to monograph). I’m about ready for this process to be over…. None of that has anything to do with my outfit but I really needed to vent!

pants: Zara / booties: Camper, similar / necklace: Emitations / blouse: Talbots, similar
