The writing schedule and word count says it is time to stop drafting and to begin editing. The logic of the thinking, and the gaps and theoretical lapses that are there mean I need to keep writing. At the moment I don’t have a way out of what is an impasse.

This morning I wake in panic. It is all opinion, not research. There aren’t really references. I don’t build on others work. Sham, vacuous, pretentious (perhaps the most damning?).
