Improper Gumption Syndrome

Once again, I am filled with gumption for a million things when the task of writing a paper is before me. I'm talking real energy and inspiration: for writing, for teaching, for activism, for literary translation, for programming... It's interesting that this is the sort of thing that entices me away from writing papers, and not passive things like watching movies.

But I shall not give in. This paper shall be written.
