It's 2:00am, and I've just completed a paper due tomorrow. I spent almost the entire weekend compiling notes and filling in an outline to make a paper-- and I think the paper sucks. Written text is a pain in the ass. I spent hours searching for a quote that would produce one line of text in my document. Had my references sources been in electronic form, I could have done this in minutes. I can't believe people can write entire books this way. But then, they are probably not dyslexic and absent minded.
This paper is only the first draft, so I get a chance to clean it up over the next few weeks. Clearly, I should have allocated more time. I wasn't counting on printed text to slow me down so bad.
I actually like the subject of the paper... I'd hate to know what would have resulted had I not cared about the subject at all. But maybe it would have been easier-- I wouldn't have cared about getting things as accurate.
