My Beautiful Wickedness


I feel seriously stupid.

I have been having problems getting going (staying started) on writing projects. I love to research, honest to God I do. I just have ten thousand levels of skitters about the write-up and particularly about the releasing it into the public knowledge stream. One of the reasons I love to participate on blogs is the low-stress camaraderie and conversational pleasure of knowledge production…

So why in the hell did it take me so long to figure out that what I need is to find some co-authors? That maybe it’s hard to write when you don’t reach out to other scholars (either in your field or out)? Would I have ever figured that out without a day full of serendipitous events wherein I am going to wind up doing some stuff with people at Vassar and corresponded delightfully with a colleague who I only met once on a job interview (it’s cool, he liked me enough to offer his own job, so that was flattering)…

For a smart person, I can be very dumb about what I need to be happy.

Collaboration is a good idea. I’m getting pressure from my dissertation advisor to continue the line of research in my spare time (HA!!!!), but if I could maybe change the focus a little, I’m sure I could sucker in, I mean find, a colleague to come on board.
