I'm finding this to be very true. I often find fragments or just
sentences that are unclear. My frustration is in not knowing the
subject well enough to offer suggestions. It seems that, like my
students, some writers are reluctant to try to improve a document
that's already written because that's over. By the time I get it,
read it and approach them with comments, they're already onto another
one. I can understand their reluctance, it just is then more
difficult for me to do my job. That's why I'd, ideally, like to be
included earlier.
