how do you all motivate yourself to do coursework etc?

I really need to do it :( but just never do! It's getting to me atm because I don't know what to do. I mean it'd be good to just do it but instead im moaning about not being able to do it heh...

    I just try and make sure its something im interested in...
    eg. Geology coursework. ended up near enough 20,000 words and yet took me about 3 weeks ontop of my Alevel work load. Im slightly obbsessive on that subject so that was my motivation.

    I tend to just split it up into smaller chunks and set myself personal deadlines- I will finish such-and-such a bit by friday- and do my best to stick to them. That way you dont have the entire thing hanging over you all the time, just a few hundred (thousand in my case ;)) words at a time.

    G'luck! :thumb:

    Actually I found coursework so much easier to do at GCSE and A-Level when there were no word limits!

    And when they were in English. heh :)
