Ask your professor for an extension...should only take you an approximately ~700 word e-mail, buying you word-time (econ concept).
>>
>>7317272

Probably. You know no one cares about school assignments? The people who are really good at it just use their natural talents and finish it quickly, while the people who aren't bulshit it and finish it quickly. And then they both pass and get their degree and end up working same shitty restaurant job anyway.
>>
Did either of those write literature? No. Get off of /lit/.

Well now that you've made a thread on /lit/ which you're constantly going to refresh instead of working I'd say your chances are pretty slim.

Just lower your usual standard a bit. If you cared that much about the quality of this particular paper, you would have started far earlier. There are fun papers where you immerse yourself in research exploring the topic, and there are mundane papers that just have to be finished for the sake of being finished; this sounds like the latter.

Why non-engineers make less than 1/5 as much.

What universities are people going to that even assign '1000 words'? What the hell can you argue or say with any substance in 1000 words?
>>
>>7317222
What's your first sentence?

>Machiavelli and Plato are very important to the idea of power, authority, and legitimacy
>>
>>7320593
Lots in first year. 1000 word essay essentially means -show you know how to format an essay and basic formal elements. Also it's to make students really narrow in on a point to explore, rather than try something way too broad, which is a good way to approach larger essays down the road.

No, no, this kinda thread's a /lit/ mainstay.

Make a pot of coffee, let it cool to just above room temperature, chug it, and put Don't Stop Me Now on loop until you're done with the paper.

I did a thoroughly cited 5000 word research paper in eight hours with that method, so it should only take you about six hours to wrap up your next 800 words, you goddamn pansy.
>>
>>7317222

Only 1000?

Shit your teacher is a cakewalk. I assign seven page papers to high schoolers
>>
all these people who go into every thread and say "only 1000?!?!" must themselves be high schoolers, because short essays are the norm in college and they get shorter the more advanced you get, because professors don't want to read ten pages of rambling bullshit but two pages of clear, crystallized thought. a short essay assignment isn't the same as an end-of-term paper or a goddamn thesis. grow up.

Dude, just delete the blank space and you'll be done

All you do is talk with a girl then invite her to watch a movie and touch mouths. Literally easy.

That's really strange. Do you have social anxiety?

Accept it that it doesn't have to be a particular attractive girl; or in a state of complete soberness for that matter.
>>
>>7317222
have you done any of the reading and thoroughly digested the material? r u ready 2 shit it out onto the paper?

if not, u will have trouble if u aren't adept at writing bullshit or have some prerequisite knowledge of mr. plato and machiavelli. godspeed anon
>>
>>7317222
Honest advice, try to get through your first draft asap. Don't just scribble nonsense but don't try to make it your final draft just yet.

Don't look at it for two hours. Then go back to it and revise for a little bit.

Go to sleep. Wake up and look at it a third time. Revise. Then print it out and go turn it in.

I know this is some rudimentary shit but getting an early draft done on college papers and revising them little by little made getting good grades on them easy and not a total pain in the ass.

This is spot on advice. I always thought about how to write something that would tie together into a nice essay, but if you just say fuck it and keep writing whatever is on your mind, you can finish 1000 words in under an hour. Most of the time, you don't even get that bad of a grade. It's better to pass marginally (most professors don't fail you unless it's completely unrelated/trash) and stop worrying about having an essay due. Enjoy you're full nights sleep.
>>
>>7317222
OP that's like three pages, and that topic should be incredibly easy to carve a thesis out of. Just compare and contrast the two guys about just one of those issues. That should easily provide three pages of material. Also, kill yourself for whining about 1000 words. I could, and did earlier today, vomit up that amount in an hour.

good job not doing the readings or taking advantage of being in a university to jerk yourself about being average
>>
>>7323453
>taking advantage of being in a university
American detected. It's the guy's right. It shouldn't be some kind of privilege. And some of it's hardly even by choice; some of it's just a formality you have to go through on the way to a job.
>>
>>7317222
Don't call it a grave; its the future you chose

>>7323491
Wait, I just read the OP. If he's going to take that fucking course, yeah, he should probably try to be passionate or he's wasting his time.
