There are psychological factors in writing. One problem I have is over/underestimating time. For example, I thought it would take a long time to switch over the footnotes from MLA to Chicago Style. While this is laborious and boring, it really is fairly quick compared to other tasks. I also thought it would take longer to revise for style, but some of the chapter I wrote earlier are better than I thought they would be. On the other hand, tracking down incomplete bibliographical material is harder and will take longer. The March 31 deadline seems reachable.

I'm doing 15 minutes a day on another article. Just to see if there's any efficiency at all in that.
