How I found Writing First Thousand Academic Words a literal outpouring of whats in my heart mind and soul.
I found writing my academic words a literal outpouring of everything I know of and have heard about to be quite a difficult exercise. I stopped at least eight times during the exercise to check word count. I poured out what I read from whatever source. I poured out theories of mine. Including academic words or taking a lenient more gentle attitude to myself is a good idea. Formats that make word count easy are better than my monstrous commitment to accumulating piles and piles of work to do; be it podcast library up to a week 2.6GB 2 days 48 hours .Average duration 1hour or 1.!/2 with Q&A.. I am mentally exhausted. Take note of every occasion of mental exhaustion. ‘the New Politics of identity’ Biku Keane and Goodhart LSE lecture started. Notes plus lecture two listens first let it sweep over me, second go write extensive notes with references and follow up. Group lectures into subject areas. Philosophy is massive. Literature is starting to make an appearance.

I have not done justice to audio and video collection. It excludes content on MP3 player which is comprehensive and on Ipod Nano. You could say I have overdone it as the excessive content has put me off my other beloved my precious MP3 player. My external HDD is crammed with stuff. I have used it to play stuff off straight rather than upload it to PC..
