After being in this class for half a semester, I think I have gotten spoiled. We have had so much freedom in what we can write– almost no guidelines, no direction, just writing. I have been able to write in almost every different genre and style I can think of. Since this class has been the majority of the writing I have done so far this semester, I forgot that not all writing is like this. For the past four hours I have been staring at the cursor blinking on my blank white computer screen in an attempt to start my research paper for my communications class. After analyzing seven different peer-reviewed journals, extracting quotes and key information, and attempting to make an outline– I think I am ready to come back to doing my homework for writing 220! I officially hate research papers. Why can’t I just write a blog post about my research? 🙂
Thankfully I have this blog to rant about all of my pent up aggression about my academic writing frustration. Now back to work!
