Possibly due to my work with the Feeling Good book, or perhaps just due to the lengthening days and some nice bright spring weather (or some combination of the two!), the ideas for the essay on initiatives to encourage girls to go into science and technology have gelled into something coherent and I am almost at the tipping point between, "How the hell can I think of 5000 words to write?" and "Eeek! I'll never fit everything into 5000 words!"
Considering that a few weeks ago I spent a whole Sunday staring at the papers I'd downloaded, in tears and thinking, "I just can't do this!" this is a big step forwards. :)
