Whither Incentive?

School starts three weeks from tomorrow. A week from today, I fly back East for my wedding. So time is, as they say, of the essence.

And yet it is unspeakably hard to finish this damn article that I drafted last summer (and which remains an ungodly mess), or to polish up the details of my syllabi, or to finalize readings for my classes, or really to do any damn thing at all. Uck. How're y'all doing?

Hope you have a great time! Take the rest of the summer OFF - you have a book contract! :)

Glad to hear I'm not the only one!

Maybe Mercury is in retrograde, or something cosmic that is making academic-types all over be unable to work.

Have fun with the wedding! Tell us all about it when you get back!

I agree with Sisyphus; it's cosmic. The Force is messing with us all, so that in the first weeks of the term we will all have cosmic karma to draw on.

Or something.
