Title is a quote by Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy
Read. Analyze. Write. Read. Analyze. Write.
(Lather, rinse, repeat.)
I am supposed to be reading, writing, and doing homework today1. I’ve a ton of it due by tomorrow and it really needs doing.
SERIOUS case of the IDoanWannas.
Well, that’s not strictly accurate. I wanna do something. I want to write on my story. I want to do some editing on what I’ve already written. I want to finish the scene where my protagonists are arguing. I want to nap.
That’s what I want to do.
I don’t want to re-read Alice in Wonderland and deconstruct it into a three page essay. I don’t want to read Kant and Russell for Philosophy, nor do I want to write an autobiographical paper on why I feel a certain way about a given topic for same. I don’t want to read about that cocaine abusing fame chaser, Freud. Further, I don’t want to write a paper on the six different types of the teenage maturation process (early, late, average x gender).
I doanwanna! Idoanwanna! I donawanna!
But I will. Because I must. And once I get into the work, I will enjoy doing it.
At this point, I’m just whining and flailing and in general, enjoying a good tantrum before settling down to the work.
I figure I’ve got at least forty minutes of tantrum time before I have to get started.
