Research Papers - Celebrate #7

Each week Ruth Ayres extends an invitation to share and celebrate events, big or small, from our week.  Won't you join us?

I know I said I wasn't going to write anymore about my son's research paper.  But...I should know to never say never!

He received his rough draft back Thursday from his professor, and she didn't quite tear it to pieces.  A lot of red ink was used (that will be another post) but I think the revisions are doable.  We He still has work to do, but I think with the changes, it will be a passing paper.  

I don't want to celebrate yet, but I am feeling much better about things!

And since this is National Poetry Month...

red ink shadows 
lurking among the pages
stain a writer's heart

Have a great week and may you have many celebrations along the way!


  1. I think I could hear your sigh of relief here in MO. Doable revisions are worthy of celebrating.

  2. That is a haiku that I feel. I wish you both the best as the revising commences.

  3. Felt the pain in the haiku but it was a very clever way of expressing it.

  4. I think every writer deserves a color besides red. How about blue or purple? Love that you changed the We to He. I remember these years. My parents never knew anything about my papers, but we definitely helped edit a few along the way. This too will pass! And so will he!
