Over the past few weeks I’ve been working off and on (more off than on) with a “big” paper for my English class. The length for the paper had been “no more than five pages,” at least according to the assignment sheet. Well, the teacher just informed the class that she meant “five pages, average. No more than 15!!”
So having a three page rough draft pretty much sucked; especially because I wasn’t sure how to expand upon it.
Well, after a conference with the teacher about the draft, and some ideas from friends, I got the paper up to five pages pretty easily. At this point I still have a few ideas to add as well as much polishing, but at least the five page pressure is lifted.
