12 Emotional Stages of Writing a Paper

by kpkaboom

1. Denial

“I have plenty of time to write still! What's the rush?”

2. Denial

“I don't have a paper due. I don't have a paper due. I don't have a paper due.”

3. PANIC

“I DO HAVE A PAPER DUE.”

4. Flow

Take the first idea you have and run with it. Because outlining is for dummies.

5. Writer's High

“EVERYTHING IS WONDERFUL AND I AM A BRILLIANT WRITER!”

6. Sleep

Because sitting at a computer is hard work.

7. Dismay

Upon waking up, you realize your masterpiece is terrible, your thesis is clunky, and your organization stinks.

8. Sadness

“I suck at writing.”

9. Determination

Time to start picking up the pieces.

10. Panic

Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines. “But my artistry cannot be rushed!”

11. Flow

Everything actually starts to click together.

12. Happiness

After handing the paper in, you know that you've done the best you could do. You're finally done.

I had a girlfriend who was a master typist and we would sit together the night before the paper was due and I would dictate the paper to her complete with book notes. Your little story was great. I loved it. Great job!!!
