Query

Sometimes I find that one perfect example. That one source, or quotation, or case which ties together my whole argument. Suddenly, my essay is clever and coherent.

Is it abnormal that, while I feel so proud of myself, I also feel distinctly like a propagandist? Like maybe I've just become really good at making stuff up?

(Update: finishing page 13 of 15! Final argument!)

No, that's normal. Or else you and I are unique.

I feel that way every time I finish a serious blog post. I feel satisfied with my arguments, proud of how it's laid out and then I start thinking that maybe it's all just B.S.

Lol, by the time I get to the end of my papers, the first pages just don't even make sense at all to me anymore-- maybe you're just not re-reading enough to get to that point yet ;)
