Feel free to share your stories of drafting hell here.

My document is 24 pages, probably need to add minimum 6 pages including detailed citations and analysis by Monday.

Dying.

That wasn't a stated minimum, just my assessment.

Yes, he has been most unsympathetic. All he had to say is that he doesn't know why I would waste my time on this when my job doesn't warrant it. He also made it clear that I was to ensure his sleep wasn't disturbed, so when our daughter woke me at 5 after going to bed at 3 I was forewarned that I was the one who had to get up with her.

Are you saying your assessed minimum was in error? Keep in mind you don’t like to admit fault...

I think I might understand his sleep sensitivities. But you ought to just sleep in different rooms on the 362 days per year you don’t fuck.

No, it was a minimum and I exceeded that threshold.

The point is that he was fixated on how dumb I was being and he didn't show even basic concern. He just keeps telling me that my effort is unnecessary without knowing what is required in my job. So he was annoyed and also provided no more than basic logistical help.

1). Right but I’m making a joke about you being an overachiever unnecessarily and you get that right?

2). He thinks you have a truly cake job and of course he’s an idiot to think that.

I don't UNDERSTAND jokes, ok?

In this case,not overachieving by any stretch. The people I work with think that I'm a "brilliant" drafter for some reason so now there's all this added pressure and I feel even more like vomiting when I turn something in.

Re point 2: True.

I'm also really, really not attracted to him.

Not going to lie, though, I am suddenly attracted to all sorts of men I work with. It's horrible. I am socially obligated to have lunch with one of them today. I keep staring across the room at another. I apparently am now friends and have some chit chat every evening with an inappropriately young guy who's dreamy.

I never have crushes normally. It's just the marriage breakdown. I really hate it.

Just start touting yourself as the “MILF you need” on Tinder and I’m sure you’ll find some “inappropriately young” takers.

This poast is why litigators exist (!)

I had to draft everything from scratch basically, though it does follow a standard form. Lots of it was recital of facts, very boring to draft once you've decided which facts to include.

It's not a good sign when your assessment of how close you are to finishing a document is based on how many pages you've written.
