F...Writer's Block

I've got a 5 page paper due tomorrow and I'm kickin ass on it. However, about 3 and a half pages or so into it, I'm absolutely losing it. I had it! I was killing it, now...I got nothin. I just keep writing one or two sentences and then deleting them! F Writer's Block!

Yeah, I actually had to turn a rough draft...I'm not using it at all for the final copy. I was so pissed when I was writing it. I told my girlfriend, "I don't write rough drafts, I turn em in and get f@#kin A's on em!"

Re: F...Writer's Block

school papers weren't so bad for me at the last second, but I've had on and off damn writer's block on my book for the last 3 years.
for school papers what normally helped me was just going to a quit section of the library with an mp3 player and making myself write down some random ideas until something stuck.

Re: F...Writer's Block

When I'm writing a paper, the first paragraph takes me two hours. The other 3-4 pages will take me about an hour. It's a very odd process.

Re: F...Writer's Block

What started as a final paper always turned into a 1st or 2nd draft because I'd print it out, read over it and tear it apart.

But by the time I was a senior, I could do a 5 page papers in less than 2 hours, with footnotes and the research needed to compliment the paper. And if there was no research to be done...hour tops. I should have gotten a Minor in Bullshitting.

Yeah, I can write papers very well...however, this was essentially a report. I hate not being able to infuse opinion into my papers.
