Have had a 12 hour writing marathon, trying to finish an article by a deadline. It’s just not pulling together the way that I want. Very frustrating! Grrr! The problem is, the article I wrote is not the same topic that they requested.
They requested an article on the equitable tradeoffs between freedom and security…and I wrote an article on the irony of current patriotism. I didn’t mean to write the wrong article, I even started out with the right article in mind…it’s just that I got all distracted by the Patriot Act and it’s egregious encroachment on civil liberties.
So now, I’m trying to decide if I should try again to hit the topic in the few hours I have left…or to finish writing the article I’ve started, and try to get it published somewhere else. I hate when this happens.
