The Result:

I spent the afternoon planning my paper for the Manchester conference (for some reason, they want the papers well in advance) (no finishing the paper on the evening before the day you’re going to present it for this conference – drat!). As you can just about see, my mindmap looks … eh … interesting – I hope I’ll still be able to read my own handwriting tomorrow morning!
In case you’re wondering: the topic of my paper is “‘It is only with one’s heart that one can see clearly’: The Loss of Sight in Teresa Medeiros’s The Bride and the Beast and Yours Until Dawn“.
