I hate the way my mind works. It jumps about like quicksilver, getting to the end of a thought or inspiration before I've got there myself. This means I start writing my point, and can't type fast enough to keep up. I think of the perfect way to conclude, write that, then have to go back and fill in the middle of the sentence. The trouble is, I've often lost the thread of my argument at that point. But I worry that if I don't type the tail end of the thought, I'll lose the gist of what I was trying to say.

Why can't my mind be more linear? It would make things a lot more coherent. I hate having to cut and paste my essays together having come up with a set of disparate paragraphs that do bear some relation to each other but not quite enough. I've tried planning and it doesn't really work. If I try to plan things, I just end up writing the essay. My mind works like plant roots. Thoughts branch off, one from another and I end up bouncing between them.

It's a miracle I ever write anything coherent really. Sigh.

On the other hand, I've written over 1,600 words. Only another 1,400 or so to go for Monday.
