Think...Rethink...Rethink...

AP Guide to News Writing--Ch. 1 & 2

Writing is the art of second thought. (Cappon 5)

This is exactly what I need to work on. I admit it; I am a hard core procrastinator. I couldn't tell you how many papers I've written at two in the morning and then turned in within the next couple of hours. At best, these papers get one read through and a simple spell check. Well, according to Cappon's statement in The AP Guide to News Writing, I should not do this. Every time I turn in a paper I have just written the night before, I am turning in my first thoughts. I should write my papers in advance so that I have the night (or, if I'm really ambitious, a few nights) before to revise what I've already written. That way I'll be turning in a much paper full of second thoughts (and maybe even third thoughts).
