Hello from Elise Chenier

I am a highly distracted assoc prof at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia and am beginning to work through a book manuscript on same-sex marriage in the US, 1950-1980. I am looking forward to reading your work, to sharing a chapter of my own, and especially to the accountability that such a group imposes!

Nice to meet you both. I am working on my chapter as we speak but am using this group to get me motivated to produce. A finished draft is a ways off yet, so what you'll get is an update on what I've accomplished. I am pleased to read your drafts, however, and look forward to it! Thanks, too for the encouragement. It's aways welcome.

After beating myself over my constant state of overwhelm, I would like adopt "highly distracted" as a much more positive and optimistic self-descriptor. Wonderful turn of phrase!
