Recently, which is to say this semester, I've become allot more familiar with revision. I cannot say I enjoy it any more, but its demonstrated to me how much better my work is after I've done several drafts, and in a way that is undeniable. This battle between laziness or, as skinner puts it so well 'spiritual paralysis', is a familiar one to me, and I think that this essay helped me with it.

This was a very insightful piece that I felt very close to. I often play a very contrary role in my classes. I have a hard time accepting things that I see flaw in, but I also know that often these 'flaws' are just mis-understandings on my part, so I frequently question and attack things thrown out before me, regardless of what it is. Unless I can see the immediate truth in it right away, I'm probably going to fight against it until that truth compels me.
