a short break

The first draft of my essay I mentioned before has surpassed 11,000 words, and I'm still working on it. I haven't yet written the conclusion. I have to clarify many parts. The argument does not flow well. Probably I have to rewrite more than 80 percent of it. I know: that's what the first draft is all about.

It's a modest thing. I know many students can write hundreds of pages in their second language. Yet for me, it's challenging. Though I'm not writing the history of modern art, but about a way of seeing and listening, I'm to-some-extent totalizing social life and art.

Anyway, I'm going to try to get this done, and then I'll go for more focused writing, perhaps analysis of a musical piece.
