Desperately seeking help!

Desperately seeking help!

Does anybody need a quick procrastination project? I’ve got to get this application out the door and could use a quick read-over of my writing sample. It’s about 15 pp. If you have a spare bit of time, I can e-mail it to you. I’d like to get it out the door by the evening mail (PST), and realize this is going above and beyond the call. I just keep thinking it’s too repetitive, but I cannot for the life of me think of how to fix it at this point. Hell — it’s the conclusion to a diss –not written for publication. Alternatively, if I explain that, will the search committee understand?

    Send it to copyfit at yahoo dot com if you like. It’s 4:40 here; I can get it back to you 30 minits after you send it, if you send by 5 pee em. fyi, your volunteer is a bored SMT editor w/ two medieval art/lit courses under her belt and no desire to compete w/ you, now or ever. eo (Hildegard of Bling)

    What’s a SMT editor?

    That’s science-medical-technical (sometimes, like when I’m being a better typist, “STM”). It’s an interesting career field chiefly in terms of all the other subjects STM editors studied before entering the field, which doesn’t seem to be many people’s first choice. We’re not rich, but we make enough money to treat starving adjuncts, often our former colleagues, to dinner or a movie now & then. eo

    I’d be happy to take a look at it too, if it’s not too late. tiruncula AT earthlink DOT net (Anglo-Latinist at your service)
