I liked last night, I thought it was interesting.
I’m blanking out on her name (the really nice PhD student) who studies writing, yeah, she was talking about the process of revising huge documents and what a task it is for her. As she was describing her procedure, I was getting some serious Edward Siscorhands vibes.
She talks about how she prints these 50 page documents out and then tapes them to the walls of her apartment so that she can stare at them not on a computer screen. I can totally associate with this, because I too, hate staring at screens. I have to stare at screens from 8am until i go to bed at night, so eventhough its old-fashioned, hard copy is the way to go. Anyways, she cuts paragraphs and arguments and tapes them to other locations of the document, then she puts the revision into the computer and throws it away. This is super interesting, if i have to write a thesis for undergrad or (of course I will have to in a masters program) I should probably try this method.
This seminar defff gave me this awesome, nifty new idea.
