The best news this week!
The rough draft of the first draft is done!
Tomorrow I have to edit it, perhaps reword things, as well as finish my bibliography and see if I can track down a couple extra sources to verify a few things (it never hurts to be too careful), but for the most part, the paper is done.
Of course, I have a first draft of a paper of almost equal length, this time on the historiography of the origins of the First World War, due in two weeks. But I’m trying not to think about that one so much.
