In which I wonder what the hell I actually know if I can't explain it

The essay writing is not going well. You'd think the social construction of drug use and misuse would be easy, right? Especially for someone like me, right?

My writing process, let me show you it. Probably the most sensible advice I could give myself is to keep writing till I've said everything I want to say, arrange it all in a logical sequence, then move the irrelevant stuff till I have 2000 words. This approach has not failed me yet. And I always hate my essays while I'm writing them - but this one has an extra-added hate factor in that this is a topic close to my heart and I don't feel I'm doing it justice, even though I could explain social construction of drugs to a primary school kid in my sleep.

Maybe I should just stop caring so much.
