on writers block

"Writer's block is often caused by conflicted feelings. We want the writing to be perfect and we want the paper done as soon as possible. We know what we know but we don't know what our readers know. We know how the memo should sound, but we don't have all the facts we need. We know everything about the software, but we don't know what an article should look like. We know what we have to say but we are afraid that it won't measure up to our expectations or to our readers' expectations."


i have many motivations to finish this paper. not least the fact that in about 2 weeks i will be in the busy hospital permanently and have no time to do anything except eat sleep work. 

but reading this above explaination makes me feel better about myself. HAHA. less about inefficiency but the reasons why the paper didnt magically get written thus far. (i mean, reasons other than i CAN'T THINK POST NIGHT and i just did three night shifts + 1 busy hospital shift the past week, and also because: JUST FINISHED STUDYING FOR VERY HARD EXAM)

anyway, it's improving. very slightly. 

something ive found helpful in life, or in impossible situations, is to start off by asking God to help. it really does help. in many tangible and intangible ways. 

on another note, i was supposed to join the dept christmas party tomorrow with TURKEY but i now have to go to the busy hospital tmr. a bit sad about the missed turkey hahah. oh WELL. 

at the very least, i know i spent this six months really fruitfully. learning a whole new speciality, starting two research projects, studying and taking one of the hardest exams EVER. can't say i've been slacking exactly. haha. oh. and buying MANY MANY BOOKS. i'm not sure if i have more emed books now or korean books. its a pretty hard fight. 

ok back to the paper. my conclusion is forming a semblance of a paragraph now. YAY. ONE STEP AT A TIME
