It is nice that finals are on Sundays because Sunday evenings I habitually blog a lot. Happily, tonight I blogged my way in a private entry through outlining my paper, and that makes me happy. I am in fact so addicted to blogging that private blogging is the only way this paper is getting written. It seems that every time I try to write a paper I have to find a new way to trick my brain into writing it. And I even like writing papers, I really do. It's just the inertia I have to overcome to get started. Once I did get started, I got so absorbed I finished it before realizing I had started playing a Hamburg rerun from the Tennis Channel and paused it. So now I am proud of myself for fifteen minutes of productivity and consequently may let myself watch tennis now. Though if I get distracted by the thematic stem file I have open, so much the better.
