Editing, Resolutions and General Babbling

I never really realized it, but I get a kick out of editing. I'm not really good at it. My grammar and spelling are decent but could stand improvement, but I think I have a good eye for misspellings and inconsistencies. Anyway, it's really fun to work on my own writing when someone has gone through and told me what my strong points and weak points are, and where I just make no sense.

Sometimes when I look back at things I've written, I mean months have passed, and I read over a paper and wonder what I was thinking. My biggest problem is making leaps of logic that, with an explanation make sense, but not putting in that explanation because I know what I'm talking about. After spending so much time thinking about a subject I know what I'm trying to say and how everything connects, and I just want to get to that next point.

One of my professors was commenting on how, for the longest time, she thought that college students lacked the ability to connect their thoughts, to make smooth transitions. However, after talking to students, she realized that the transitions were there in their minds, they just never seemed to make it into the paper.

My point? Nothing really. I was just having fun working on a story, I guess. :)


In the year 2006 I resolve to:

Slap stupid people in the head.
