I've been working so much that I haven't felt the need to blog. But, just an update:

Proposal approved by committee members in early October. Waiting still for K's approval, but I'm optimistic. So, I'm plowing forward. (He comes back from CA next week so I'll start bugging him again, then.)

Getting the fellowship application off this weekend. Working on the narrative autobiography. Those just suck. I feel way to self-conscious writing it.

Going to start posting on Donna's blog, too, since this one is private.

Working on Chapter 4 (suprahuman) to finish by end of the year.

Then, in the Spring finish Chapters 5 and 6 (inhuman and nonhuman).

Need to buy these books for next Spring semester (ILL'ed them and they're good):
Landmark Essays on Kenneth Burke, Barry Brummett, ed.
Intentions: Negotiated, Contested, and Ignored, Arabella Lyon
The Art of Rhetorical Criticism, Jim Kuypers, ed.
Kenneth Burke and the Scapegoat Process, Chris Allen Carter
