Plodding on as I do - enthusiasm can carry someone a long way. Right now, it is pounding out ch 2 as per usual, in time for my diss lecturer to read it and see me in the fourth week (10 days from now). I have new impetus - after speaking to a senior lecturer, I am going to be attending the post graduate fair, with view to possibly going further. I also am considering getting a placement somewhere via Plymouth Uni. It is early days yet. Have read the MA English Literature page and am definitely interested.
