It's my final essay. 3500 words. I've got 2 weeks to do it. But I just can't get started! It's like I'm paralysed by fear that I can't do it, so I'm just putting it off, and off and off.....

Someone write it for me? I'll pay you, I've got approximately 27p grin

OOh, I love writing essays - probably because I don't have to.
What's it about?
I think I would need more than 27p!

I invite you to the Procrastinators thread smile

Seriously, get on with it. What's the essay on?

The risks of malnutrition in hospital, and barriers to good communication in a clinical environment - thrilling stuff!

Have done 78 words, can I have a break now?

Oh I like writing essays too. I'll do it. I did a 12,000 word one this year.
what does it need to be about?

fruitshootsandheaves Fri 30-Sep-11 16:38:22

oh err...then again

the risks of malnutrition are, you get thin and ill
and barriers to good communication er.....doors?

PMSL at doors. Thanks fruitshoots grin

How long did it take you to do your 12,000 worder?

Just write some bullet points to expand later, it helps break the 'blank page syndrome' then expand them one at a time taking a break between each.

Oh crikey it took about 6 weeks months of procrastinating research and rewrites.

Make a list of all the types of people who might suffer from malnutrition in hospital - babies, old people, people with specific eating disorders (e.g. coeliac disease, bulimia, anorexia), anyone hospitalised long-term (is hospital food that great for good nutrition?). Then aim to write a page on each. Or at least a page of bullet points.
Then do the barriers for each one. They're probably not quite all the same.
And then write a conclusion.
Sounds quite interesting to me...
Goes away to cook dinner - would rather be writing essay.
Will write essay for free childcare, meal-cooking and access to decent library.
