So I’m trying a new thing today – I submitted an essay to Marginalia, and I didn’t edit it 20 times first. I’m sure that fact will come back to bite me in the proverbial ass in two days when they reject the essay, but I thought I’d give it a go. At least something new is out in the world.
That said, my students will probably be horrified that I sent out a first draft (okay, horrified implies that they care, but mostly they don’t so) because I keep saying – revise – revise – revise. But then I’ve got eight years more education in English than they do, so . . . .
I’ll keep you posted on how this goes.
