Realization --- footnotes! [May. 19th, 2001|08:02 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Realization: the best reason to cite anything and everything ... if you use footnotes it makes a page shorter, so it's easier to reach 7 pages.

Even without that "cheating" though, I think it's going pretty well.... shouldn't be too hard to finish now that I've read a bunch more of the book and have a lot of good ideas. (yay for reading... *sigh*)

Update: They also hate it when you use contractions ... fine by me: expanding contractions takes up more room!

but a six page paper with a page of endnotes looks more like a six page pager than a seven page paper, though.

but spread those end notes out over the other 6 pages and suddenly you've got a good 7 page paper and you can go do something fun instead.

True.. and what about your works cited section? Those take up space too ;-)
