Christmas is only a day away, but I’m working very hard on a rush editing job. I have to edit and format (including standardising the bibliography) 350 pages of academic research, and I have to get it done by 9th January. I only just got the job yesterday. And it’s Christmas time!

Editing takes a long time. Formatting bibliographies takes a long time.

So how am I going to do it?

The whole job looks overwhelming and the timeframe is a nightmare. It needs to be chunked down. I find numbers very soothing in circumstances like this.

So I’ve counted the pages and the days I have to do it in. I figure if I edit 25 pages per day, I might just make it. But that means I don’t do anything else in that time. I’ve allowed myself Christmas Day off.

We’ll see how it goes.

    I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days..
