I am trying to write a paper that is due Friday and I just can't focus right now. I know what I want to argue but I can't seem to connect my evidence to my argument like I usually do. I feel like there's some sort of barrier and I just can't figure out how to work through this thing. My mind is blank and too full at the same time, if that makes any sense. It's like I have way too many things running through my head that I blank out and can't focus. I tell myself to focus, and think "Focus" but it just isn't working, my mind stays blank. This usually never happens to me with writing; the words and sentences seem to just flow easily. Not tonight. And I want to at least get a rough draft finished tonight before so I can revise it tomorrow.
