srah's roar of triumph and glory: 'mew!'

I am so proud of myself for not putting off starting this 13-page paper until tomorrow night, since it's due Friday. Seriously, starting tonight - while sounding completely bonkers-insane to everyone I've talked to - is a great leap in anti-procrastination for the srah. I am srah, hear me roar!

I think I have some kind of paper-writing hyperactivity or ADD, though. Not just because I am blogging right now when I should be writing a paper - that's just procrastination and being easily distracted. It's just that once I get motivated to write a paper, I want to write the whole thing. At the same time. So one part of my brain is typing the introduction while another is thinking about things that need to go into the references page. When one gets stronger than another, I have to hop off to that part of the document and type away there for a while and hope that I remember to come back to the first place.

Wouldn't it be nice if I could just sit down and write a paper from the first word of the cover page to the last citation in the references? Not gonna happen.

Oh sure. You have time to blog but not to watch the Junior Mint episode? I hereby excommunicate you.

Oh, and I'll also point out that I am the exact same way with papers. That's why I like computers - because I actually CAN write different parts at the same time, and just move them around.
