- Worked on several parts of the introduction, mostly 'Fans and rights holders are grappling with how to combine fanworks with money' and 'Multiple converging problems hinder an effective integration of fanworks in cultural economies'. Struck again by how much easier it is to write about this stuff in academese, even when I'm actively trying to keep the style accessible and jargon-free. This is going to need a lot of rewriting. (And all academics who sneer upon "vulgarized" books about academic research have probably never tried to write anything but academese themselves. Writing in clear and readable language is hard.)
- Joined Wikipedia's Anime and Manga WikiProject, hoping to find some others who are interested in beefing up the dojinshi-related articles there. Started listing those parts of the dissertation that can become Wikipedia articles.
- Answered another CFP.
- Made giant list of everybody I need to contact for proofreading help with various sections.
- Made enquiries about getting editing help with the final version of the text next March.
- Did some scattered reading on law. Feeling like I'm pretty far gone already if Japanese copyright law analysis is what I read for fun when I'm procrastinating on writing.
