My problem with writing papers (particularly of the research type, and particularly when that research has everything to do with religion):
I’m afraid of not being able to address all of the issues and counter all of the arguments in a paper. And then I realize that I’ll never be able to do all of those things. And then I get even more scared because I feel like I’m doing something wrong. And then I waste time. And then I give myself writer’s block because I’m scared.
This topic is the one I’m most interested in and passionate about. And so I have more to risk by being wrong. Or something.
I have a problem with fear standing in the way of expression. It’s a general theme of me.
I have no idea how to fix this.
In the meantime… This paper is due tomorrow. And I’m about to lose my mind over it. Maybe I’ll post it here once I get my grade back and y’all can let me know your thoughts. *nods*
