I Need help and some advice by Loretto on 26 April 2012 2:25pm
 
I have been asked to write a debate article, I am con the topic. The girl who is writing the pro piece has refused to share her arguments and reseach. I sent her my facts and research almost two weeks ago because she asked me to and said she would send me hers in return. She sent me the most pitiful email, it began with "Haha" and then she shared 2 video links and all of her arguments are basically the pro version of what I gave her two weeks ago.

I feel like she is being underhanded here. I have my own article written, and the final copy edit is tonight.

I did everything she asked me to do and she emails me a crappy list the day before copy edit night.

So I need your help. I want to make sure that my article is cohesive, articulate and well written. I'll copy and paste it into the next box and would appreciate it if anyone who would like to read it and give me feedback before 3pm, that's 8 in UK time of course. If it is crap I just won't submit it. Thanks guys. Don't feel obliged to do this, it is a long article. But I would appreciate your input.

John, thanks a million but I took it down at 2:30pm US time as I needed to be in the copy edit room, exactly where I am now, by 4. So I'll keep you guys posted. The girl is about ten feet away from me and is really quiet tonight.

Thanks anyway John. I appreciate it. Get a new key for your car!

Here's the last article I wrote for that student newspaper. Interesting experience......hard to motivate students when there is no grade awarded and that was what the issue above was all about. I hate tardiness anyway, but when someone else's tardiness effects my schedule, well that just p@#$%es me off completely.

The first article is long, The Kony 2012 Debate. I was con and came second so if you are interested in reading it just scroll down.
