Getting ready to TEACH

In the style of...









You will be perfect in every aspect of your writing.

You abuse your thesaurus trying to look smart, you run a mile.

You give me an unclear pronoun reference, you run a mile.

You write me a run-on sentence, and I will break my foot off in your John Brown hind parts. And then you will run a mile.

Perfection. Let's go to work.

Writing a perfect paper is not about those grades in front of you.

It's not about graduating.

It's about you and your relationship with yourself, your thesaurus, and your computer. Writing the perfect paper is about being able to look your essay square in the title page and know that you didn't let it down because you told the truth.

And the truth is you did everything you could. There wasn't one more thing you could've edited.

Can you turn in that paper with clear eyes, and love in your heart, with joy in your heart? If you can do that, gentlemen - it's perfect.

More to come, I'm sure.
