Progress in dissertation

Or lack of it!

It’s no secret I’ve been trying to finish school by writing my final thesis/dissertation.

I don’t why I’m having so much difficulties doing so. It’s not like I don’t know how to, or I’m not smart enough to use the tools I have to write something. But I’m suffering from a severe case of writer’s block and I’m getting anxious since the deadline is soon. I already postponed it once because of stress and my doctor recommended that I shouldn’t worry about it, at the time being.

Now, there’s nothing to do but to finish it. It’s due on Oct, 10.

I already changed my research question or actually I changed to concept of the entire paper. I wanted it to be a business plan instead. I thought it would be easier having that approach, instead of focusing on a few aspects I would work with all the different elements of a start-up business.

Now, I’m fearing making a complete idiot out of myself and not passing because I can’t write 50 pages. In my head, I know what to write, I know what to suggest, I know the elements I have to focus on. For some crazy reason, I JUST CAN’T get it down on paper! :'(

I wonder why it happens to me every single time I have to do a major written assignment. Why can’t I just DO it, like the rest of the students. I just wanna find somekind of inner peace so that I’m able to get it out of my head and into that blank Word document.

Dear God, please help me!
