Do you ever stare at the screen for what feel like yeaaars, finally you face the calamity of your miserable situation, that there are thousands of words left to write and you haven't written a single one... you push yourself to put down a few words, then you realise that it's ****, you are going to make a fool out of yourself, graduate without a distinction, get rejected for PhD funding and end up as the unemployed doctor with 10's of thousands of pounds of chronic liver and lung damage. Writing essays... writing for me... is so very hard... it's a drain on my confidence. I read a lot makes notes and everything... i don't struggle to understand the material but i find it very hard to write. I think i procrastinate with just reading, reading, reading to escape from the bad feeling I get when I write. It reminds of all the attempts ive made to get 70s and failed, it always ends up in miserable mediocrity (around 65), mainly because i don't spend a lot of time writing the essay, the essays end up a bit and never enough time to go past a first draft. How do you manage it? Is this something everyone goes through? Any advice for dealing with the writers block in general is also appreciated :-) thanks all in advance.
