Title: Having the same issue with my Otomedius review as I did with my Deathsmiles one...
Posted: November 13, 2011 (01:46 PM)
I know what I wanna write, but I'm just so on and off when actually typing it. I think I'm officially burnt out on making shoot-em-up reviews for the year. XD

Must finish review.... must... not be tempted to... play.... Metal Gear Solid HD Collection! Gwah!

Update 1: First paragraph done. Time to eat some delivered pizza.

Update 2 (Nov. 13 - 8:33pm est): Still only one paragraph.

Update 3 (Nov. 14 - 12:44am est): Three paragraphs. >_>

Update 4 (Nov. 15 - 7:11pm est): Woke up from a nap since I only slept 2 hours this morning before going to work. Still only three paragraphs.

Update 5 (Nov. 17 - 2:59pm est): Five paragraphs done. After getting off work, I'm gonna finish this sucker and hopefully get it up this week.

Update 6 (Nov. 18 - 5:08am est): Think I'm done, but I'll probably read through the thing a few times before submission to be sure.

I don't know if I've ever spent multiple days working on a single draft of a review in my life. I have the sense that I may have done so once or twice out of around 700 reviews, but I'm really not sure. Generally, my first rough draft of a review and the final draft are finished within 4 hours of the point where I first start writing. It's interesting to me how different people have different processes that work for them. I'd have a devil of a time trying to remain focused on a single review over several days, yet for other people that works great. The mind is a strange thing.

Yeah, over the years I've experimented with different methods on writing a draft, just to see if a certain rhythm gels with me. Sometimes I can finish a draft within an hour, sometimes it takes up to a day or more. Since this is more of a hobby to me instead of an actual job, I just go with whatever feels right with me at the time of writing.

This time, however, it's just one of those things that could've been done easily, but is getting dragged out. x_X
