    Default Essay

    Well guys,
    I have to write an essay. But, I've started it, and I lost interest in it. It's about the book, Life of Pi, which I really like, but I'm finding it hard to care enough about writing the essay (we've written other essays on similar topics in LOP). Any ideas on how I should stop procastinating and start writing the essay? I need motivation!

    well - if twollars will help I'll give you some!!! lol get started

    what kind of bribes work - for me when I don't want to do something I think of worse things to do then choose the lsser of two evils -
    or else promise myself chocolate - or strawberried and cream or some such personal bribe

    guess some of us could pool twollars to bribe you with?
    em - luanne

    imagination is the only weapon we have in the war against reality!

    success is simply getting up one more time than you fall

    lol that would be SWEET!
    but no, you probably have better things to do with your twollars. A donation would certainly motivate me. Maybe I can promise myself something afterwards Thanks backgammonbob!

    Try figuring out how much your GPA will drop with an "F"! THAT should motivate you!!

    How long does your essay need to be, and what is the focus?

    What don't you post the major points of your essay here in outline form?

    Because now we are going to just torture you until we see progress, lol.

    hm I see...

    well, I my thesis is Since Pi is constantly faced with death, his view on life changes to accept life and the experiences in it as valuable and unique.

    and the essay isn't due until Monday, and I have all weekend to work on it, so I'm psyched!

    The main points of the essay are about when Pi is trapped in the boat with a tiger, when he sees the zoo animal killed, forshadowing his relationship with Richard Parker later on in the book, and I'm stuck on a third topic. But I've got the general outline and my intro done! so at least that's progress!

    For those who care, the rough rough draft is finished. I still have to check it for editing mistakes, and continuity stuff, too, but otherwise, it's okay! Final editing stuff will take place this afternoon!
