Writing a metaphysic has been an erratic chore. Recently I spent eight weeks addressing a single critique I received from a philosophy graduate. Then I expected to take three months (the rest of this year) to incorporate one-hundred pages of my own notes into the metaphysic. Instead, earlier this week, I incorporated all these pages in a single evening's blitz. OBSERVATION: So I have another complete draft of the manuscript in hand, ready for another complete reading on my part.
