Well, I am due to turn in my encyclopedia entry on slave patrols on August 1. The only problem is that I can’t find my muse. I have written four drafts, all of which I’ve torn up (figuratively since I am using Word) and thrown away (deleted). Which stinks since most of them were near complete but they weren’t quite what I wanted to write. The topic of slave patrols is so large and I only have 750 words to express all I want to say. This is driving me crazy.
So I guess I need to pray, focus real hard, block all outside distractions (dog, radio, etc.) and just sit here till I either starve, go insane, or write the perfect entry. I am hoping that the third option happens first. Although, while in law school I came pretty close to the first and second taking place all too often.
