Just feel in need of some prayer support.

Please could people pray that I can get all the things I need to do done.

I have to get my MSc proposal by Friday and I am struggling, know what I want to write but I can't get it from brain to page.

That I would manage to work harder on the course I am doing and that I would be able to remember the stuff I need to.

I would get the books done for the accountant and everything else that is hanging over my head.

Thanks in advance

I pray, in the name of Jesus, that the beauty of the Lord our God would be upon Pilkington, and establish the work of her hands for her, yes, establish the work of her hands. We thank you, Father God, that you have not given her a spirit of fear but one of power and love and of a sound mind.

Eeek! I hope "by Friday" means next Friday, not today.


Something that might get you ready to write the words. Free Writing. Write for ten minutes (time it -- a kitchen timer is always good, since you aren't mentally timing it too) without worrying about grammar or spelling. Just kind of blab all the swirling thoughts down as quickly as possible. I usually use it to catch all the stuff I want to include in the final piece, plus brainstorm a little on how each idea can be hammered out in the draft. It helps deal with the conscious and subconscious part of writing and gets it on paper (computer screen?) so you don't have to keep carrying it in your brain.

Once done, go do something halfway constructive that takes some brain power but not much. Mostly rote thoughts rather than saaaayyyy, like getting all your work ready for the accountant super-brain needs. (I usually wash dishes or fold laundry. lol)

Then come back and see what you wrote. Somewhere in it, usually not in chronological order, is your basic outline.

Also useful if your writing has the typical three-key-points form, but you're stuck on what to say about one of the points. When that happens do the same thing for that point and it does the same thing for the smaller part of the writing.

And don't think getting ready for an accountant is just another problem. That comes to your advantage. When I need to think something out on writing, but the actual thinking-it-out part gets me nowhere, making my brain work hard on something entirely unrelated is as good as sleeping on it. Even when we're not thinking of what we're trying to write, the brain works on it subconsciously. That's why some of our best ideas come when we wake up or are taking a shower. When we get out of the way for our brain, the brain can work on the problem better.
