Reading people’s papers

Cleared up a little today, but there was snow on the car this morning.

Have a high school teacher who wants me to check a paper that he is writing coming in today. Most people come in and say, “Just check my spelling and grammar.” Problem is often that the organization is so poor that it’s difficult to understand what they’re going for. I offer advice on how to really fix their paper. They walk out, and I never hear from them again.

Later: There was a little content problem, but he seemed to be willing to change it. I had also done some work for him before. He told me that the paper that I had proofed for him will be published this summer. There’s a little gratification there.
