Well, I have cranked out about 362 words and unsurprisingly, I have all of my old 'A' level books in front of me (lucky really - I was going to give them to a first year BSc Psychology student, but forgot to drop them off. Just as well, considering). Obviously, I have to use Freud's stages of childhood development, but I think I can use Jung's archetypes which is fascinating. You can story board absolutely ALL of the figures in your own life. I think it will be VERY interesting when I move towards creative writing full time post BA.
493 but with a lot of research going on. Desk is awash with paper and stuck on side of PC tower, the book stand is crammed with 2 books and propping up another. I am really driven to do this because it is Brave New World AND Psychoanalytical. Later might be difficult when I tackle Marxism, but I think it will be OK if i deal with it as a social/economic project, with Marxist theory thrown in.
I have topped a thousand, but have saved off the brief Marxist observations and pasted them into Plan 2 (because when I have two parts to an essay, I couldn't see the wood for the trees). I am not down to 748 and I am nowhere near finished entering the quotes let alone expand on them. I have a feeling I will have to cherry-pick the best and kick the rest to the kerb.
I am stuck into Freud's Psychosexual Stages and the Id/Ego/Superego. Messy, or what?
I am back up to 898 words and I haven't touched Jung's archetypes yet (and would he complain if I did? :-P). I think I am about 50% done on the Psychoanalytical, need to concentrate on the rest of it, then pare back to 1,000 before I move onto Plan 2 (Marxist).
Back tomorrow :-)
