Hypocritical Professor

I am a PhD student in English Literature and Composition Studies. I also teach writing to undergraduates. I always emphasize revision, the writing process, and long-term planning of projects. My advisers think I practice all of this that I preach.

...but I write my 20 page term papers overnight. And they're f****** awesome!

  • I got my comment published - and it took me less than a minute ! I Totaly Rock the English Skillz !

  • If others think they're awesome, good for you. Run with it. You have talent. But then ask yourself what it would take you to reach 100% of your potential and if an easy 90% of your potential is better than a hard-fought 100%. Your answer is your business.

  • Some people's best work comes at the 11th hour. Mine does. It's good to teach the process. Everyone should be aware of the proper steps to get from A to Z, but it doesn't mean they all need to follow it. Whatever works...

  • h*** yea!!

  • LOL Trust me, they don't think you proctice what you preach! I completed a 25,000 word thesis in one weekend... and it was published.

  • OP here. See, the thing is, no one is supposed to know this is how it really happens (all the time). Shhh!!!

  • Uh-oh, looks like some student is upset at their professor!
