Crunch Time Again…Give Me Discipline!

November 2, 2010 in Blogging, Novel, On Writing, Study

It’s getting down to the sleepless time of the semester again, so it might be a little quiet around here for a week or so.

Strange how quickly the year has gone by.  It’s been a great year so far, very busy but extremely satisfying.  I’ve learned a lot, read a lot, watched a lot and wrote a fair bit too.

And no, I’m not doing NaNoWriMo again this year, not even an unofficial one.  By the time I complete the semester it’ll be halfway through the month already, and I’m going on another two-week holiday straight after.  (Very excited because I’m going back to one of my favourite places again — Taiwan!  So stay tuned for some more fabulous posts.)

I just need to push through the last couple of weeks and get those final three assessments in.  Sounded rather easy just a few days ago, but now I am panicking, as usual.  The problem has never been motivation because I love what I’m doing — it’s discipline.  I only seem to ‘have it going’ when time is running out and I have no choice, and even then I occasionally struggle.  Sometimes I wish I could just lock myself up somewhere and keep away from all the distractions, such as this blog!

It makes me wonder whether prison would be a good place to write my masterpiece(s).  You get free food, a dedicated time for exercise once a day, and the rest of the time you’re stuck in a cell with nothing to do except think, read and write.  And with all the nasty stuff happening around you, it’s probably a great place for ideas.

Just a thought…

Crunch Time!

I have a couple of posts lined up but they will have to wait.

It’s crunch time as all my assessments are due this week and I am struggling.

If I am still alive by the end of the week, look out!!  Going to India next week for a wedding, should be awesome.
