Almost done the term update

One paper is 99.9% done (just have to fix the endnotes and do a serious edit), the other is about 80% done, and they're both due at 5:00 pm tomorrow. A good sleep tonight & a hard day's work tomorrow, and I'm done!! Woo hoo!

Watch tomorrow be the day from hell...knock wood it's not!

I'm the sort of person who writes papers until they're done. I can't go back and edit them after. All the editing happens in my head before I do the writing, I guess. I've always wondered how other people do it, though.

The paper that needs to be edited is one that started out as a shorter paper and got added to until it was much longer, so I'm not sure how cohesive it feels, being born out of bits and pieces. Hence, a serious edit for coherence (but never for length. I can't cut papers). And I always have to edit for flow & elegance of writing, both because I'm a perfectionist, and also because that's the only way you get an A in English!
