Work update

I started working on the paper last weekend.  I read:  Frow, John (2005). Genre. New York: Routledge.  I am currently working my way through:  Duff, David (2000). Modern Genre Theory. Essex U.K.: Pearson, it's good reading while I soak at the hot springs.

Yesterday I spent some time writing, I have written about my writing style previously so if you are new to prolurkr you can check the old post to understand why the word counts go up and down.  The diary section started the day at 5142 words and is now 5029, a count that belies the amount of work I did on the section.  Maybe a better count would be that the day started with one page of narrative text and now has close to two pages. 

After working on narrative I found that my completed section had a problem in that my Reference Manager citations had gotten converted from dynamic reference to simple text.  This happened when I was finishing my extended abstract earlier this year.  The change is a problem at this point because the paper exists as subfiles tied to a master document, which means that the reference list is created dynamically each time the paper is brought together.  This will need to be done until the final edition of the document is in place, then I can do a complete convert to text and make it stick.  So I had to go through the chapter and reenter each dynamic citation over the old flat text.  Not hard but defiantly a time consuming pain.  Ain't computers wonderful...?...!...

Today I need to write my Future Faculty Teaching Fellowship evaluation so quals writing will have to wait a bit.
