The Writing Begins

Yesterday was a milestone: I started writing my thesis paper.

In truth, I've probably been ready to start writing for about a week, but the importance I've put on it was giving me writer's block. It's only some 30-40 pages and I've written that much before, with much less time. It just has a daunting name: "Thesis Paper."

To recap, my thesis paper is on the role of metaphor in interaction design. Metaphor is oft maligned and typically misunderstood as a tool for designers, but it can be used effectively in both the design process and within the products themselves. Indeed, digital interaction design would probably be impossible without it.

I'm trying to have a draft done before Thanksgiving, which means writing 3-4 pages a week until then.
