I can’t help wondering how many corrections my manuscript will need. I have come a long way since I took English classes at Penn State. I remember turning in an English paper and thinking that it was perfect. I was shocked when the professor returned my paper. It was full of green pen marks pointing out my mistakes.
Finally I listened to the professor when she said, “I am lonely in my office. Come in and see me if you need help.” After a few office visits, the green marks on my papers became less and less.
It has been one week and four days since I sent in my manuscript.
