Well, in a paper that's only to be 4000 words, I've got 127 footnotes.

Methinks I'd better cut down some of these.

You must have large feet. That or a very fine pen ;-)

Just trying to perfect Rimmer's method. Bottoms of feet don't sweat much, yes?

I find I like writing footnotes more than I like reading them.

They are addictive to insert. Though, I keep wanting mine to be snarky.

If I like the subject I will quite happily read everything, If I don't I'll just skip the footnotes.

Well, I should have been clearer. My department uses the Chicago manual of style, so all 'Author, page #' entries go in footnotes as well as tangental remarks. :)

How many pages is 4000 words?
15th-Dec-2005 06:38 pm (UTC)
8-9, depending on how much room the footnotes take up.
