When your assignment is to write a thing, WRITE A THING.
Don’t *not* write a thing.
Don’t not write a thing and then not submit it.
Don’t not write a thing, not submit it, and then drop off the face of the Earth.
(Otherwise, a couple of tired and cranky individuals are going to have to step in and clean up your mess as the clock ticks on towards do-or-die deadline time. *)
