The tangents have started early

After completing a very rough draft of my dissertation introduction the distractions have intruded. I finished a draft of an article (Narrative theory and the Decemberists), I started another early, unintentionally (Glenn Gould and his radio documentaries), and am planning my course for the Winter semester (issues of authorship in post-war pop music). I am enamoured of the variety--it keeps the boredom at bay.

I can see how easily it is to get sidetracked from the dissertation, but simultaneously I am relieved to know that the projects that take me away from the big 'D' are still advancing me professionally.
