Stage 1 of the article consists of 10 days of writing, and basically a 5,000 word draft.

Stage 2 will consist of 10 more days of going through and making sure it is all in complete sentences and serviceable prose. Now the point is not to count words but pages of finished prose. The first day of this stage, today, I got up through page 7.

Stage 3, if needed, will consist of 10 or fewer days of making sure I like it, all the bibliography is there, etc...

All this is in 1-3 hours of work a day.

The Lorca ms. came back today from the copy-editor. I haven't opened the package yet. The rest of July looks rather intense. I might have to work on two things at once in any given week.
