First, my project’s motto: You are not alone.
My motto is a double-edged sword; on the one hand, I have people rooting for me and for this book in my corner that I can rely on. On the other hand, well, I feel a tremendous amount of pressure not to let them down.
I feel like this scene in The Muppet Movie:
Anyway, I think it’s time to re-watch that movie, if only because it’s good for my soul.
But I digress.
Next, what’s something about my project I’ve been meaning to explore. I think I need to tie in more about how this book is about the affective realm of contingency. It’s about decisions, but it is also about the fallout from those decisions, the emotional labor that goes into being contingent. I have a section called “Too Emotional” but really, it’s all about feelings, for better or for worse.
So, motto: You are not alone. New area to explore: affect.
