Last night we were writing our Christmas letter, to be included with our Christmas cards. And, no, we have no intention in having them posted in time to be received by Christmas.
As I was finishing the editing, it was just a few lines over one page. I said something out loud about being frustrated that I couldn’t get it down to just one page.
My husband looked at me and chuckled. I was like - what? and he said “You’ve obviously been out of college too long. Just adjust the margins!”
Duh! I totally forgot that is the trick that helps every college student survive - adjust the margin a little here, move the font up a smidge there, and voila! A five page, double spaced research paper.
That could be read by a blind person from across the room.
