And I’m not even talking about how I failed my PhD, this is post-PhD failure misery – and everything is still an incredible mess. I thought I […]Read more "Even More Live Novel-ing… I guess…"
For anyone who has been following along for the for the past few months, I have been attempting a number of tasks, most of which were in response to my PhD thesis failing after 8 years of hard work.
