I sent a paper off that wasn’t as good as I would have liked it to have been because I was under a time pressure. Well, I managed to put myself under a time pressure. I don’t expect they will accept it. I think it has potential to be good and I’m looking at somewhere to submit it.

I have a paper due October 1 that is mostly written, but I need to fix it.

I have a paper due October 15 that I have purchased the books for research and begun reading, but that’s all on the lit review section. (I have read all the plays and taken notes.)

I have a paper due October 23 that I’ve done tons of research for but haven’t written a lick on.

I have a paper due October 30 that’s on some books. I’ve read the books but haven’t written the paper. It has potential to be published. But I’d have to have a reasonably good abstract done at the end of the month.

I have two papers due in December. They aren’t written. One will be easy. One will be a little more difficulty.

So… there’s papers I need to get cracking on and I just don’t have the desire to do anything.

I will tell you that getting my work done today wasn’t hard. It helped that I decided not to assign homeworks. It let me get caught up.

I’m dropping homework assignments when they aren’t necessary. We’ll see how that works.
