The Great Essay Rant!

The first for a new semester!

I need to write 1000 words on a passage in Northanger Abbey. And the argument I will be taking is that this is two pages of foreshadowing (for the flists' Austen-geeks, it's the first appearance of Captain Tilney).

It's 12:15 and the word count is 0.

*bows down to the mighty zokutou*

Edit: Oh, and as regards my current musical choice: You haven't heard the last of them...

129 words of contextualising the passage, and noting that I'm going to argue it's all foreshadowing. The rest on Catherine and Henry Tilney being flirty little devils.

Only 400 left! Gah!!! I've done the bit about Catherine not being as doughy as she seems, in sensing that Captain Tilney is less than pleasant, but I've still got to cover the foreshadowing of his being a cad and Isabella a tart!
But for now, lunch.
