Essay Rantage


By Monday, I need to have produced an essay.

Without the distractions I inevitably find at home, I can write an essay of 2500 words in three or four hours. As this essay doesn't have a word limit, I don't know what I can do with it.

At any rate, I'll keep ya'll informed. 'Cos I know how much you care. :P

Here's my question:

To what extent is [James] Madison's theory of republicanism internally consistent? What, if any, are the theoretical weaknesses in Madison's republicanism?

What indeed.

It's 2:11. Time to collate my notes into a rational argument.

2:40: Okay, so I haven't started. But I HAVE written my opening rant. I always write a rant before I start working properly on an essay. It allows me to say what I've been thinking and actually get down on paper what I want my essay to say, as well as working through my frustration with the material.

2:56: Plan written. Now I need to start writing.

3:11: Can't write without popcorn. Now I have that, I'm sure it'll be much quicker.

3:59: 582 words in two paragraphs. And I got to hurl thinly-veiled abuse at historians. Yay!

4:40: 958 words. Many of them wank.

5:18: 1455 words. Who da woman? Me, I think you'll find.

5:56: 1849 words. Intro and Conclusion when I can be arsed.

hehe, thats great! sends me back to my uni days that were oh so long ago (about five months, lol) and makes me wonder why on earth I'm starting all over again next year! Good luck with your conclusion, hope you're better at them than I am. After five years of Uni I still haven't managed to write a passable conclusion (lucky the rest of my essays are so damn good!)

I always write a rant before I start working properly on an essay.

Aha! Wot an excellent idea. I will have to borrow it from you when I begin my next essay.
