New Projects

Hot on the heels of the good news related to my book, I’m now working on revisiting some material from the British Library that I made a bunch of digital image scans of the last time I was in London. I originally thought I’d use them for my dissertation but they never made it in there and so now I’m going back through them all and making transcriptions (they’re from a series of letter books belonging to the Jacobean gentleman, John Holles, who was also sort of an old-timey jerk) and trying to assess if maybe they’ll lend themselves to a new, small scale project. It’s taking longer than anticipated though because, as an independent scholar, I have another actual job that pays the bills and has to take priority, but I’m sure I’ll finish it up eventually!

Ooh love the bright blue piping on that top!
I wish I had the drive you do...I never do anything exciting with my spare time. Really need to fix that.

It's funny how that happens - when you're so used to being in project mode, as soon as one project ends, it's easy to throw yourself into another one because you're so used to being busy! This sounds totally familiar to me, although our subject matter couldn't be more different ;)
