I’m having a really hard time writing literature reviews and academic papers.

There is the point about how my brain is just wired to the literary way of writing, with proses and broken sentences in the right places. The flourish that comes with the beginning and the end of a sentence, a semicolon. Is it quite possible for a person to be straightforward, yet struggles with writing straight to the point?

One cannot argue just how dry the content of academic papers are, full of facts that cannot be interpreted any other way than the way it has been presented. In your face.

I still believe writing should be able to evoke emotions. Writing is also but another way of conveying ideas. Oh the juxtaposition.
