For once, a practical update

Instead of a photo or a poem – and it also marks the first update where I actually talk to you, the mysterious reader, out there. So, dear reader, what I offer you here is really only useful to you if you’re a student, or know a student, or somehow have a deep and mysterious love for reading term paper writing guides.

If, however, you should fall into one of those three categories, then I give you:

(complete with references ranging from Star Wars to advice given to passengers of river crossing vehicles)

– or, in other words, my own humble attempt at writing a “How to write a term paper” guide. It’s also longer than most term papers need to be. Oops. It’s here on a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial share license, so feel free to share far and wide. And let me know about improvements you’d like to see.

Aaaand that’s it for now – more photos, quotations, and maybe some posts about what this blog says that it’s actually about – points of view, relativity, postmodernity, language, literature, the ineluctable modality of the visible and of everything else – coming soon. I just need to finish writing them. And, at that, the PhD.
