In one of my classes we have to do peer editing. Yeah I know, it's lame. I'm in a 400 level English class and I have to look at someone's rough draft.
Anyway, both of the drafts that I have to peer edit totally suck. I would be nice and try to sugar coat the glaring and blatent errors, but I'm getting graded on my peer editing. Last semester I had the same prof and tried to be nice to the people.. I got a B on the peer edit.
This time I'm going all out, guns blazing, not holding anything back. I feel bad, but I can't afford to be nice. Maybe if this guy had written the whole 8 pages instead of 4, didn't just do plot summary, and had at least one intelligent thought I'd be nice..!
So anyway.. I feel bad tearing these people's papers apart, but what else am I supposed to do? *shrugs*
I just hope they don't cry......
....and the only pen I could find is red
