Inspired by my great experiences with the International 3 Day Novel Contest and the 3 Minute Thesis challenges that have been popping up here and there, I decided to slice off 3 days for just thesis work. No, I don’t think one can write an entire thesis in three days, but I’m at a critical juncture in my work on C.S. Lewis’ spiritual theology. I am doing a massive reorganization and midstream correction, and I need a large time block to begin to turn things around.
Beginning in about an hour, I will be ignoring all social media and email for the following 72 hours–though I might tweet or post on facebook if a thought strikes me or if C.S. Lewis says something intriguing (odds are in favour of this). I might owe you a blog response or email or something, but it won’t happen until later this week. I am turning off the distractions and setting both my writing playlist and my coffee maker on repeat. It’s me, these shiny screens, and a huge pile of books around me.
So, wish me the best (though I won’t see those wishes until Wednesday)!
(note the pretty hot graphic design at the top? I’m thinking of going full-time into the field … when I get the thesis done!)
