I have enjoyed my blog more as I have been going through it. I feel like it is something I can be proud of but I’m still struggling with what I would like to do for my final assignment.
I am not one of these people who has an idea of what they want to write about half way into the course. This week I’ve trawled through my blog to find inspiration. I was hoping that something that I’d written or posted would set my imagination alight and I would find a topic, formulate a question and criteria on which I would like to be graded. I thought by the end of the week I would least have a topic. Unfortunately, I don’t. I’ve looked through other’s blogs and have seen the amazing creativity of my peers! But I’m still wondering what to write.
There’s PDF on how to develop academic writing and I plan to start doing some of the exercises to formulate my question and help develop my ideas. I can’t help but be reminded of the Hemmingway quote, ‘There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.’ I’m sure I could work wonders with that metaphor and post-humanism, especially considering we covered the body and its relation to technology in Block 1. The Dory meme is to remind me what to do. All the while also thinking that writing isn’t the only option of submitting my work. Alas, I feel overwhelmed again.
I saw that Audrey Watters was at Edinburgh, I really wish I could have attended her talk! There’s always something magical about being able to experience something like that in context. Maybe I would have found the inspiration I need. Most of my feed was in relation to my assignment and blog. I just need to write now.
