The Digby 23 Project

If anyone here is subscribed the Medieval History feed from About.com, they'll realize I'm being a big copycat here. However, this is awesome and deserves extra attention.

In other news, I've finally finished my outline for the Paleography (B Course) essay, and it alone has topped at over 4,500 words (out of a strict maximum 7,000 for the essay itself). I always pare my notes and quotes as I write, throwing out redundancies and shortening overly poetic bits, and it's actually comforting to know that I've done a bit too much research. As with the MT essay, though, I'll probably end up having to throw out half my thesis, but I'd rather be in that position than caught short for words.

I am, however, a bit frustrated with the title I gave the paper, which we had to hand in over two weeks ago already. Since that point I've refocused the work just enough to make the original title an awkward fit. It also would help if I had time to go to Paris and Vienna and look at the correlating MSS for Iam, dulcis amica, venito, but I'll have to settle for a transcription (since, as far as I can tell, the Bodleian doesn't have a facsimile edition of either MS!).

Bah, just when I start to get pleased with myself for having 4000 disorganized words for the C-Course essay...
