The Shift

It is day 22 of the Chain. The idea behind the Seinfeld chain is to string together as many days of working on your research agenda as possible. I usually think of at least an hour as my minimum, or 200 words.

Today, I feel I hate Lorca and all of my own ideas about Lorca. In order to avoid burn-out but keep the chain alive, I am going to work on a translation of a book of poems by María Victoria Atencia. Tomorrow, I will not hate all my ideas any more, and will come back refreshed.

One way to write every day without getting burned out is to shift, occasionally, your writing task.
