Y'all. Y'ALLLLLLL. Please tell me how to conclude my fucking paper. I know part of it involves going for a walk, possibly painting my nails, petting the cats, destroying my high score on Bejeweled, making tea, drinking tea, and maybe folding some laundry. But beyond that I am clueless. I need this thing out of my hands, today. The bibliography is done, the footnotes are formatted, the musical examples scanned and cropped and wrangled. I read the whole thing out loud last night, including the many poems I quote, and I fixed things I never would have seen had I just read it silently. I cut out many cherished bits of my stellar prose, probably 10 pages worth, and unceremoniously tossed them in a file called EXTRA BITS. I hope to delete EXTRA BITS soon, just as soon as I've written the conclusion and know for certain that I will not ever need the EXTRA BITS ever.
But really though, if you know how I should wrap it up besides writing THE END, holler at me.
