I have 3000 words to write before tomorrow. I have done most of the research and made a plan I am happy with but no words at all yet. Feeling the pressure really badly.
The reason I'm on here rather than cracking on is that I am in sole charge of a 4 year old and so far have managed only 20 uninterrupted seconds. I'm writing to vent my frustration rather than to ask for any advice, although reasssurance that it is possible is welcome!
Oh dear. I don't imagine that you wi get much done with a 4 year old.
Leave it until tonight. Early bed for the 4 year old and then lots of coffee and an all nighter for you.
I think we have all been there.
I remember going into the office one evening to use their PC many years ago. I finished the assignment at 8:00 a.m, quick shower in one of the nurses rooms then a full days work ahead of me. It was torture.
can you take DC out now for a really energetic run around to tire out then this afternoon put them in front of a DVD for a bit whilst you tighten your plan up and maybe start your bibliography? list all of your references you'll use on your plan too.
then after bed time you can crack on and stay up late but you must ban yourself from mums net, Facebook or any other browsing whilst you're writing to get it done
Yes I did, thanks. 3 in a week was a really tall order and I'm now utterly shattered. Hope you got yours done too! Now just the anxious results for the results. Could I make sense in my sleep-deprived state, I wonder.
Well, it turned out to be my best essay ever. Who would have thought? I had a really good plan and then the essay seemed to write itself once I had free time to concentrate on it. It's very stressful to adopt that approach but obviously effective. I often wish I could work as efficiently when the deadline is not breathing down my neck.
