Conference and Written Feedback
“I always did well on essay tests. Just put everything you know on there, maybe you’ll hit it. And then you get the paper back from the teacher and she’s written just one word across the top of the page, “vague.” I thought “vague” was kind of vague. I’d write underneath it “unclear,” and send it back. She’d return it to me, “ambiguous.” I’d send it back to her, “cloudy.” We’re still corresponding to this day … “hazy” … “muddy”…”
Jerry Seinfeld (Sein Language Bantam Books: 1993)
“Writing by nature is holistic. An analytic approach simply makes revision manageable.”
(from "Creating Writers")
