:>>> writing a disgusting document known as a thesis . . .
:>A word of advice: the things you learn about writing while you write a
:>thesis are only good for writing other theses. They should be shed when you
:>enter the work world. <smile>
Don't worry, I intend to do a purifying ritual (probably includes lots of
alcohol) when I'm done with that puppy. Besides, if I were convinced that my
work habits with that one document are representative of what writing is and
feels like, I would NOT want to make a living at it. Actually, I'd rather
not talk about this anymore ;)
