I am deeply frustrated as events have kept me away from the keyboard and I have a VERY long day in Plymouth tomorrow - catching an early train and probably won't be back til after 9pm. I have tried to reassemble by rewriting then trying to research at the same time. I am becoming rather unstuck as neither are working for me at the moment. At least P2 and Hubby are out at the moment, which makes writing so very much easier.
I have printed out my old Bluebeard mini dissertation, so I can see what kind of lexis I used there - part of this to stop me citing myself; another is that I "cannot 'brain' today, I have the 'dumb.'"
The only way to deal with this is to cut the essay into thirds as I need to crunch down the waffle to the more complex, yet still component parts. I can see me doing this to Doomsday - but I have a mere 92 days left, so that's not an option.
