It is evolving, but I have such a very long way to go. Its about fine-tuning ideas and trying to make a reasonable essay of them. I spend a lot of Blank Time just staring at the screen going 'I don't know where this is meant to be leading me or anyone else that reads it." I have just restructured it and fractured the first part of the essay. I am looking at carnage here. Time to tidy up and take a break.
After a short break I have come back to the desk and still despair. I am in a quandary as whether to write things in a timeline or by category (there is a huge difference between political agitprop and satire for a start). I have rearranged a few things, which have flowed better, but are now full of inaccuracies.
The problem is, my main lecturer is a keen political animal and I am seriously worried about slipping up here. She is an amazing teacher - a right little dynamo, but every time I write something I can feel her breathing down my neck.
Oh and sorry Blake, you have had to go :-/
1,338 words. I think I have broken through the wall at long last. I am getting towards the end of it before I introduce modifiers and maybe more academic content ( I can see key books outside the corner of my eye and possible e-journals that I may have to use to bunce it up), then pare back. I feel a certain amount of relief, but I need to do a substantial amount of rewriting before I present it on Wednesday.
Still, getting there :-)
