The ship to Avalon has set sail. I’m standing on the shore waving at it gleefully as it sails away. Dear readers, ladies and gentlemen, the last chapter of my thesis is finished.
Well, the draft is finished. It still needs to be revised once my supervisor has looked at it. And I still need to revise my conference paper based on the Avalon chapter for the presentation I’m giving on Monday. And then there’s that gaping hole in Chapter 4 I need to fix, and Chapter 1 still needs a conclusion, and then I have to write the introduction and conclusion—
BUT I’M GETTING THERE, I REALLY REALLY AM.
Avalon was my last chapter written from scratch. It’s only cleaning-up editing from here on out, and the only new writing will be the introduction and conclusion. There is Hope, after all!
