Being sluggish...

It's a Wednesday. Today is supposed to be a very productive day with 8 hours to spare doing my proposal at the library. As I've mentioned in my previous post, Alden is enrolled for a full-day session on Wednesdays and today is the day where mother and son both go to school to learn new things and to get work done. An ideal plan, which is about to fail *deep sigh*. I'm here in front of the PC and trying hard to continue my proposal writing.

I've only written about 80 words today and I can't move on. The thought of writing a literature review on Second Language Writing Research is so unappealing and I've no discipline whatsoever to force myself to get some mind juices flowing. I'm having a brain freeze now and this post is a testimony of that. Look at the way I write now. It's all sulky and cluttered :-( With the mood I'm having, I don't know whether I'll survive in the Endnotes tutorial at 2pm. At least it's a tutorial, not a lecture. With only 11 participants, there's no way I can fall asleep during the 90-minute lesson.

Okay..enough is enough. I think what I need is a big bar of Sneakers which I can easily get from the vending machine at the counter. Does chocolate help pregnant ladies in generating good ideas for proposal writing? Let me try and I'll keep you posted.

Is there a deadline to your proposal dear? If there is...don't worry about having writer's block.. the juices will be flowing in a rush 48 hours before the deadline. That happens to me all the time...
