Word count: 4246.  And I still have a chapter and a half to go for the bloody first section.  I knew I could've done an entire dissertation on the history/origins/problems/good things about fanfiction alone...  Ah, well.  The analysis/post-modernism bit is interesting, too.

Sorry, he'll just have to cope with it being over the damned word count.  Eni, I'll do you a review of the Hair soundtrack when I've finished my first section.  I reckon I can get it done today, giving me til Friday to do the other 6000 words (which includes the junk on post-modernism that I have already...) giving me Saturday to get it bound, and Sunday to relax.  Then I have to do my blimmin' America Noir coursework.  And watch Blue Velvet at some point...

First section done!

Chapter breakdown:

Introduction -  290
What is Fanfiction? - 1130
Why Does Fanfiction Happen? - 1239
Legal Implications - 778
Fanfiction in the Public Eye - 675
What Are the Problems? - 425

Total for first section - 4537

(Gah, you can tell I'm running out of steam by the end, there...)

So, here's a plan: the post-modernism links are now going to form the start of my analysis bit, so I have less to write about the texts.  I'll do that after I've eaten, because it's easy, and then I'll finish reading 'Mosaic' and do a review of Hair, possibly not in that order...  I have about 3000 words on post-modernism already, but I can make it shorter, so... 2000 words on post-modernism, which leaves 4000 to do on the five texts.  That's 800 words per text.  Ish.
