WHAT I TELL MYSELF EVERY TIME I HAVE TO WRITE AN ESSAY

Lies, all of them. Inspired by the 7 page philosophy term paper I wrote this morning, 2 hours before class.
  1. 7 pages isn't even that long!
  2. I don't believe in prewriting, it's a waste of time
  3. I work best under pressure
  4. Writing essays isn't that hard
  5. I can DEFINITELY write this the night before it's due
  6. I always do okay with essays when I wait til the last minute
  7. But really, I do work best under pressure
  8. I'm not a procrastinator, I'm a perfectionist!
