Pieces of jigsaw or less

I realise that I can only write in bits and pieces – disjointed scraps of writing which I piece together afterwards. I can never write a coherent piece from start to end, so when I’m confronted with blank pages to be filled (1500 words to be exact for the essay I’m still working on) I baulk, squeeze out a few painful sentences, and then fly off to neverland with procrastination my favourite friend.

I don’t think I can ever survive in HSS this way (not that they would want me anyway); Take-home assignments are fine but how can I Ctrl-X, Ctrl-V whenever I like during exams?

Essay-writing only gets comfortable for me when I can randomly put in fragments of thought without worrying about the whole structure, the order, until the very end. Which is not the way academia works, so…. Why do I have a feeling that I cannot survive in university no matter which faculty I consider? :-\

my best friend said something about ‘the bits and pieces’ to me as well, in reference of my writing which he described as rambling. gotta try a little harder kiddo it usually works if you press on till like 3 am when all you hear is nothing but the buzzing of crickets and cars on the expressway, and your thoughts of course. good luck!
