Hello Groupthink. I'm desperate.
I'm taking an adult education class on writing. My final essay, in a style and on a topic of my choice, is due tomorrow. I have a thing done that might be kind of thinking about maybe being a draft. It's about video games and my simultaneous shame and delight in being a gamer amounting to me and games being in that state where you'd tell Facebook "it's complicated". That might be my thesis. I'm not sure. I don't know who I'm talking to, the tone and style are all over the place, and I'm not even sure what my purpose is!
But I've scrapped something like a dozen essays in the last week and I really don't have many people to ask for help. I've basically spent today working myself into panic and upset stomach. Soooooo.
If anybody has some time to spare on this [insert local climate here] Sunday afternoon, feel free to e-mail me at black[dot]chalice[at]gmail.com.
