It feels great to have actually achieved something today: instead of vaguely reading and writing, I decided to create a specific task to complete. Today's task was pretty easy: expand the bullet points I'd written for defining the three stages of taphonomy: necrolysis, biostratinomy and diagenesis. Now I have actual sentences that actually make sense! Magic!
