It's time to buckle down. Break out the pen and paper.
Write my thesis.
My broader topic is Gothic Literature, and as any complete techno-nerd, I'm gathering internet resources. Here's my start:
The Literary Gothic
Norton's Gothic Overview
Wikipedia on Gothic Fiction
The Oxford Book of Gothic Tales
Scholarly books of Chris Baldick
Second step, I'll be reading plenty of Gothic Lit.
I know, not so much a chore.
