08:18 am - A simple revision?
A few of you may know that I spent an entire night last week trying to finish a paper, only to find out that it was actually due today. This is the paper I mentioned in my last post.

Well, last night I decided to revise it and resubmit it.

It was 14 pages.

It is now 20.

I'm still slightly overwhelmed. If I hadn't stopped, I could have written at least another twenty pages.

As a former teacher and one who has spent several holiday "vacations" grading papers, let me just say that going from 16 to 20 pages in a one-last-time revision is just so TOTALLY wrong. Dude, you need to learn the art of vorticism. That would be taking a 16 page paper down to 10 or 12 pages -- now THAT takes a lot of work and skill. Anyone can fluff up a paper, but to pack it in? And believe me, anything you can do to make your prof happy(ier) over the holidays is in your best interest. :)

Fluff? Who said anything about fluff?

That's what larger fonts are for.

No, this was all new, interesting information. In fact, I ended up cutting stuff from the original 14 pages. It just wasn't a strong enough paper.

Besides, why would anyone want to drop a good paper from 16 pages to 10? :)
