The Perils of Writing a Thesis

I am nervous
that I will fail.
That being able to research
just isn't enough.
I'm not sure I remember
how to write
something that is interesting.
Practice your writing.
Description and more
description is what i've been told
will make my thesis great.
But how do you recognize
the great anecdote when it is
in front of you
let alone write about it
in such a way that people will be able
to imagine they were there.
And what if I tire of my topic
or my supervisors
tire of me.
I feel nervous
and excited
but mostly nervous.
