real thinking is hard work
you don’t say…
but really. i feel tired after i have struggled against an argument in an essay, trying to shape it an resolve it so that its tight and it makes sense without leaving anything hanging out.
in that sense, writing an essay is like wearing clothes. make sure everything fits, keep everything buttoned up and zipped up, don’t leave loose bits hanging, but dress nicely enough that people want to look.
the wonders of word association. imagine that. that wearing clothes/essay writing thing was a product of ‘tight’ and ‘hanging out’
