No tv and no coffee make Yodelingwerty something, something.

I am completely drained and freaked out.  My thesis is due in under three weeks, and I barely have one chapter.  That means I still have three chapters to write and fast because I need time to revise and edit the thing after I show the first draft to my advisor.  Having a draft by this weekend would be ideal, but that means writing at least thirty pages this week.  

Of course, at the end of the last term, I did write fifteen pages in one day for a paper that I got an A on.  It nearly killed me, but I did it.  Now, I just need two days like that, and I'm in the clear.  I'm not sure if I can physically stand two days like that in one week, but I suppose I'll have to try.  Thirty pages by Friday morning (two days for writing, one for resting) would put me over the minimum if you add it to the ten that I have now.  

Part of the problem is though that I don't want to just write to the minimum.  This project represents one year's worth of research. I want it to be good, academic, and as long as possible so as to represent a true acheivement in my field.  

I don't think any of the professors in the department know anything about my topic though, so I really just have to make the work sound authoritative.  I do have some room to manouver if there are any inaccuracies in the project or any wrongly cited works.  Not that I'm planning on having either of those in my paper, but it's good to know.
