Packet slump

My grad school deadline is approaching….six days from today….and I feel as though my brain is leaking out through my ears. It’s been a hectic month. Work has been horrifically busy and I haven’t been able to carve out nearly asĀ  much time for writing as I want to.

Which means, in essence, I’m screwed.

I know that pessimism doesn’t help, but it’s where I’m at right now. I feel like I’ve hit some giant metaphysical wall, gaurded by an evil, Gandalf, anti-muse who is loudly declaring “You shall not pass!”

I really am disappointed with myself. I hoped to be much farther along in my draft – close to done, actually – at this point. I don’t know where my motivation has gone. I just sit and stare at the page, praying for something to come out. But all is silence. :/ Even the cicadas outside my window are noisier than my keyboard…

Here’s hoping I can crank out something halfway decent in the next couple of days. Otherwise, I’ll be in for it when my advisor reads this hot mess of a packet…
