Primo Levi - Draft 3 (Continued)

What more can I say, other than I am going to be hacking about the essay until it makes sense?  Sense of doom prevails - I have been having holocaust nightmares, not helped by watching X-Files: The Blessing Way last night.  Just....not a good time.  Word count so far 3,132.  Hackitty hack.

A writer's desk is not a pretty sight - 2 text books on social psychology, 2 supporting books and a kindle book all to hand.  Plus evidence that I am working hard with stacked paper and my essay on view.  This will be the final draft and it is now a vastly different essay than how I started it this morning. Still a little way to go, but I have been emailed by my lecturer, who informs us that the limit is 3,000 to the absolute max.

Well, that's a relief.

Fellow student (EP) has found it very tough going too.  it is such a painful book, especially when you have to read and reread the same stuff and delve into other accounts to support the evidence.  I am done for tonight.  Tomorrow will be the grand edit (and the shedding of 316 words)and proof reading sesh.  I will let it rest, then submit on Thursday evening.
