    Well, it's been a while since I added anything in here.

    I said in my first post this would catch the highs and lows, and the last 6 weeks have certainly been a low. I had something happen in my personal life which is one of the most bizarre things I think I've ever been through (I don't want to post about it here) and it has left me reeling a fair bit. It is pretty much resolved, and resolved in the correct way, but there will be plenty of lasting effects which have unsettled me a bit. As a consequence, I did the square root of **** all in terms of progress on the chapter - despite me spending many hours reading and staring at a screen - and now I'm playing catch up. I am feeling a little outfaced in terms of hitting my intended deadline - I want to submit in January, and the first draft isn't anywhere near properly researched or written. Hopefully I can pull it back round!

    Anyway, sadly a complete opposite of my last news, eh?!

    Still finding it hard going to get back into the swing of it. Am away with work from tomorrow until Wednesday, and then on leave and up home Thu to Sun. Hopefully the break will leave me ready and willing to knock this out of the field!

    Wow, it's been a while hasn't it? I am still trying to square away my philosophical framework but it is hard going. I've lost track of the number of times I have deleted it and started again because what I had written just doesn't work at all. For weeks (months?) I have had the feeling I am about to push through the blockage and get it done and right, but for whatever reason I haven't quite made it yet.

    The annoying thing is I can talk about my framework until the cows come home but I can't write the ****er down.
