college, studying

Peer editing at its best.

note: 87% of college boys have this poster hanging somewhere in there apartments.

My favorites…

“Is this a typo or are you being experimental?”

“Maybe a little less time should be spent describing the Cheetos in this scene.”

“You talk about pregnant raindrops and chaos and auditory canals and ‘the passing of time’ as ‘an orifice,’ when you could really just be talking about humidity and ears.”

“This character seems like a huge jerk for an otherwise savvy lady to bring home.”

“The jungle images and alien abduction seem to clash a bit here.”

“It’s your story, your voice, your choices, and I don’t want to question them, but why these words?”

“The problem is I have all these questions I don’t necessarily want you to answer for me. I raise these questions to let you know that there were questions, and if you had intended me to perceive the answers to any of them, I didn’t.”

“You probably don’t need about half of what’s written here.

such moments are just another reason why {i love college}

  1. I LOVE the big, long one. LOL It sounds like something I *might* have written. So mean, though. I should work on my editing skills. For myself. Although…I like the descriptive “pregnant raindrops” line. It shouldn't be touched.
