I have managed, albeit a week later than I would have liked, to finish reading the textbook chapters on Chekhov’s brilliantly unusual play The Cherry Orchard. I would have finished the texts over two weeks ago, but work has been busy, and then last week I got some very bad news about my grandmother and the cancer that they discovered in her lungs 10 months ago, but chose to do nothing about.
Anyway, I don’t feel ready yet, but over the next couple of days I will be working on my first draft and hopefully writing out the plans for my first TMA.
I am feeling very unsure of myself and my abilities right now, but that will fade, I just need a very loud and detailed pep-talk with my mirror image and everything will eventually be sorted out. I hope!
