Closing in on Part Three.

I spent most of Wednesday focusing on Part Two of my THESIS, which is the bit that most directly focuses on the Jim Henson Company. More specifically, Part Two examines the transmedia extensions surrrounding THE DARK CRYSTAL and LABYRINTH – THE WORLD OF THE DARK CRYSTAL, THE GOBLINS OF LABYRINTH and RETURN TO LABYRINTH – and considers how the use of negative capability and world-building can be considered (and evaluated) in each one.

This was the section that had the most rough text already in place. I still added a ton – I'm currently at 28,129, which is 3,826 words up from my last score posting and a whopping 5,185 words up from where I was when I woke up this morning. This shoots my previous theory that I can only manage about 2000 words a day straight to hell, but, enh, oh well. This also means that I'm pretty darn near 112 pages at an estimated 250 words per page, which is increasingly worrisome, since I still have most of Section Three to get together. And the Conclusion. And the Bibliography...

Whoof. Man. There's a lot of stuff that my committee could say about this baby, but "lightweight" probably isn't going to be one of them.
