I successfully defended my PhD dissertation yesterday! 

After an hour’s discussion of my novel, with the four professors offering their feedback and advice, they congratulated me for completing the degree.

Being greeted as Doctor for the first time was a surprisingly powerful feeling.

Four years! It’s been a long process, leading to a six hundred page dissertation (intro, novel, and accompanying essay).

The novel seems in good shape, too. Some parts need to be developed, others trimmed back, but the overall shape is good. 

I now accept being greeted as

Dr Wallace

Dr Daniel 

Dr Remain

Or just Daniel 🙂
