I don’t know if anyone ever noticed, but I kind of decided to do Monday posts. These posts were going to be different than the random blogging of pictures, other reblogs, or random thoughts. I wanted them to be more indepth, something that I actually spent a little time on to demonstrate something I was thinking about, or how I thought about a particular topic. I saw it as an exercise in articulation. I didn’t want to make it a fixture for the blog like Magic Friday is, just something I aspired to. Well, those stopped this semester for one simple reason, I was too preoccupied with being stressed out. But that will be over seen, and I hope to resume these posts with more regularity.
Just…just something I wanted to mention.
I’m probably the only copywriter alive who thinks I should print out 75 pages of copy, paperclip it with pretty office supplies and walk it upstairs to the appropriate people so they can red-line it by hand, instead of just e-mailing the file.
I still edit all my papers by hand on paper. I find it helps keep the information more organized from draft to draft. Besides, I love the feeling of taking a paper covered in red ink and fixing it all and reprinting. It’s like taking a paper that has been badly injured (red ink = bloody wounds) and then healing it.
