so I've left my assignment to last minute and I now have 2 days to write 8,000 words. I don't really have any excuse besides bad mental health, and I'm not gonna defend myself because I know it's my fault lol

BUT, for motivation i wanna hear some of your tightest deadlines and whether you made it on time! (don't tell me to 'get off tsr and do my assignment' okay, I'm just trying to make myself feel less depressed over here pls)

Motivational anecdotes are not going to help you write that assignment.

I suggest you get off TSR and start writing something. You probably won't get all 8,000 words completed and even if you do, it won't be top quality, but at least it's something.

I personally wouldn't be able to work on a assignment on such short notice. I have done 2,000 words within a 24 hour deadline before, but that's about as far I went. Goodluck though.

I've completed my history homework booklet while my teacher was collecting it. She was really strict and it was really stressful, never doing that again.

That was 4 years ago, I don't have any motivational stories now since I too am stuck in a mental rut.
You should probably start now.

Honestly it depends on what you mean by left it all to the last minute.
If you’ve done the reading and know the material it’s a lot easier to spew out words. If I know my stuff I have written a 5000word essay in a day.
Start a plan and start padding it out.
You’ll get there.

lmao the only motivational comment in this thread! ty!
I've done all the research and planned out the paragraphs, it's literally a case of writing it up. I'll 100% get it done on time and i have faith in my last minute abilities, I just wanted someone to relate to my struggles lol

I never researched or prepared anything so was up against the deadline every single time. I had about six hours to write a 4000 word essay on Kant and had only vague ideas of what various other texts necessary for the essay said. Often what I remembered a book as saying was not what it actually said, so I just pro-plussed up, extrapolated from certain statements in the extreme, and used the magic square brackets to change references to what I need them to say.

You should get of the internet, sit at a desk and put the books in front of you. If necessary write it on bit of paper then type it up later so you aren't distracted.

Master’s Degree dissertation. Due by 12pm the next day, started it the day before around 2pm and had to pull an all nighter. Also, worth mentioning is I faked all the surveys I used lol.
