It’s Tuesday night and I have nine days until the first assignment is due.
I haven’t started it yet. OK, that’s not strictly true: I just did five Focussed Freewrites – one for each provided prompt. One of my Freewrites starts as follows:
“[Prompt]… what the f–k kind of prompt is that?!”
Perhaps I’m not getting into the spirit of things as well as I should? 🙂
I’m really enjoying this course, but I’m panicking about the first TMA. I feel like I haven’t left myself enough time and subsequently I can’t think of anything to write. I’m just being silly – I’ll manage it. I think I’ve just described the problem – I’m enjoying this course so much that I need to do well. And I’m worried that I won’t.
I need to break out of this self-fulfilling prophecy (do those actually exist?) and just write. Maybe I’ll feel better about it after some dinner. Maybe it’ll be like those exams you had at school, where you come out of them thinking you’d done absolutely terribly. When you got the marks back they were actually your best. I hope so!
