A Professor Worth Listening To

Watch this short video and think about editing. Well worth your time.

I nag people about proofreading and editing. If you think editing is merely looking for punctuation errors, you need to watch this video. He makes a lot of sense (and speaking of sense, he has one of those that is humorous).

  2. I bet students are terrified at first—but they learn! Speaking of Kingsfield, that character was based on my husband’s torts professor at Boalt, William Prosser. Talk about a teacher who terrified his students!
