The white background is more calming, and the option to write whatever I want, even though it's self-imposed, makes me feel better.
I do have 60 pages of text, plus figures, so when you put it all together, I would wager a guess that I'm somewhere around 2/3 finished. That factoid makes me happy.
Writing the discussion does not.
So, check out scientknits.blogspot.com for the next little while. I'll update here when the mood strikes, and will definitely post around defense-time.
