Maybe My Kids Need More Time …

I try to keep things pretty tight on my academic schedule – assignments for the intro class go out on a Wednesday and are due the following Friday. Nine days seems like enough time for them to do some research, find a subject, try it out, see it doesn’t work, find another subject, get that one to work out then edit and submit.

Years ago, I would have killed for a schedule like that … in reality, many wait until Thursday afternoon, then scramble for whatever is available. I don’t like that, but I get it.

Now, if they read this post by Vincent Musi on taking eight years to get one story done, they’ll be complaining they need way more time … of course, he’s shooting for National Geographic and did a bunch of other pieces in between.

Still, a lesson for me, perhaps.
