Let's See How I'm Doing

From Wikipedia
Well, we're in the homestretch now. I feel like I have a fairly clear idea about what I want to write. I still have a little way to go. Basically, I am going to focus on the Lost Generation in Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises and relate that in some way to Carroll's Alice. At this point, I still need to do some deeper analyzing of my primary text. 

I have a lot of different sources that I need to digest. I feel like I have all of this information, but nowhere to put it. I need to organize my information and probably throw some of it out. Once I get more into the writing process, I think I'll do some more research, but we'll see. At this point, I think I have a lot of what I'll need already.

I've received some good feedback from different people, and I feel like it is enough for now. I'm trying to think of a good question to ask my "expert." I'm also trying to figure out how to get in touch with him. Hopefully, I'll have a more developed idea of what I want to ask by the time I've finished my rough draft on Friday. Once I get writing, I'll get on a roll and then everything will fall into place. I'm excited to get going and I feel more prepared than I have felt before writing previous papers. This week is important and will determine the ultimate tone and direction of my final paper.

  1. I feel like I'm on the same track as you--a lot of information, but it's not all organized. But all of this information that we've gathered the past few weeks will definitely fall into place with some effort. Good luck!

  2. Have you tried looking for people who have given talks at academic conferences about Hemingway recently?
