Game On!

Standard

A busy day at research central today:

— Added about 100 new items into the Emmett Wilson database. Tedious, but part of the process.

— Wrote three pages of the rough draft for chapter two. Going very slowly; driving me nuts because I’ve had to stop and start so much (several new questions have popped up during the writing process — nothing big, just speedbumps).

The historian who wrote the introduction to this book complained about the historic inaccuracies. The writing isn't so hot, either.

— Read two-thirds of Susan Bradford Eppes’ memoir of life in Civil War-era Florida. The inconsistencies and self-serving first-person style in the text are making me cuss under my breath as I read it. However, it is considered an accurate insight into the experiences Emmett’s mother would have had as a teenager in the Civil War, as she was Eppes’ peer. OMG. It isn’t quite like enduring a root canal, but it is close.

And now, it is 7:15 pm. I must set dear Emmett aside for the next three hours.

Bully Bell ready to go! MSU vs. Arkansas, at MSU!

Because it’s football time! Bully Bell ready to go! MSU vs. Arkansas, at MSU!

You better believe that if the Bulldogs make it to the playoffs, I will have Emmett in full Bulldog regalia, cowbell, and all.

See you after the game!
