There, that looks like a good start. Don't you find that starting things is always the hardest bit of them (other than getting an essay up to it's word limit when you already ran out of things to say 500 words ago)? But there is something about taking that first step, out into the unknown, getting that momentum started, getting off your lazy arse and actually making a start on something. I find that I can never write the introduction to an essay when I start writing the essay, how am I supposed to when I have no idea of the exact tone and style that I'll write the essay in? I have to leave the word "introduction" floating in brackets at the top of the page, in the vain hope of being inspired to write something there more substantial before the hand in date. This isn't just true of essays, but starting anything new always requires that extra bit of courage to take that risk and do something different and unknown. If only everything was like Live journal posts, where you can write two words as an introduction and then get into the meat of your argument straight away, or a different argument in this posts case, but you get my point.( From difficult beginings to harder endings...Collapse )
And this post did have a much better introduction, still about that totally unrelated topic but a piece of writing I was rather proud of, which is a big thing for me, and then Firefox decided to open a page no just in the tab I told it to but in this one as well, so I lost it. I therefore had to cobble that paragraph together from half remember arguments, which is why it sucks and I'll now never be happy with it. But that's life I guess; at least, seems to be my life at the moment.
