Back in gear again?

It's been over a year since my last post. I did write the Odyssey paper, but there's no mention of Tolkien in it. I finished the first (biography) report for the incomplete English 600 class (Research Methods course). I still have to write the second report, which is supposed be about bibliography. Then I will only have to write three or four other papers in order to earn the MA that I've been pursuing for the past several years.
I've been lazy. There's no other explanation for why the current conditions in my life predominate. It's like the thesis has become (oh! I can't even think!) ... I'm just trying to say that I'm blocked, and I haven't made any forward progress, really. The unfinished thesis both blocks my forward progress and excuses my laziness. The unfiniunfinished thesis is killing me and everyone who cares about me.
