motivate my arse

well here is the 411, i have a Roman History paper due tomorrow. I have the resources (7 in all including the 1 ancient source) and i have Word all loaded up but now comes the part that i always get stuck on, starting it.

Its not that i can't come up with a intro or 8 pages worth of historical banter, its just that i always need a kick start to start a paper. Now its due today at 9:30 AM and i've already decided to skip my 8:30 class just to make sure. I need a good kick in the rear to get started, give it you all people.

Well my paper is going to be about the Roman army under the rule of Augustus. Focusing not on the battles (since my prof wants more than the typical paper) but on the life of the soldier. I just realized i'm using two historical resources instead of one. Tacitus and Suetonius.

wait, this isn't helping.

buggaboo, I can't find my copy of De Vita Cesarium

now I'm depressed, anyways keep in mind neither is contemporary to Augustus, roman historians are notoriously biased (Tacitus) and dangerously revisionist or sensational (Suetonius)

edit - found it!

they are but they treat him better than they do Caligula.

from them i'll be taking snippits and such and relying on my other sources for the majority of my information. I've started on my intro and to draw it out i'm talking about Marius who is one of my personal favorite Roman figures.

::edit:: awesome, page 1 is down and its just my intro. only 6 more pages to write then my half a page conclusion to wrap it up. Come on Augustus, do it for me baby.

Write it with a "stream of consciousness" ie. just write down the way it flows from your mind. Once all the stuff is down you can do some "intensive editing".

Cheat. But dont be a lazy cheater. Look up an essay about it on google in another language than your own then translate it. Just dont copy paste it because if your teacher does a search and finds it you are screwed.

well i did finish it without cheating, bongs or the help of a hundred monkeys on a hundred typewriters (i have them working on my How to Get 100 Monkeys To Write This, book).

less than 2 weeks. so you think i wouldn't want time to fly but my birthday is also coming up so the two are pulling hard on each other. Despite that i think it will all work out. R++ does it and look at him.



wait, bad example.
