Scene: Writing Center. Student and tutor looking together at a paper.
Student: Why did you circle this… and this?
Jane: In a few places you use long phrases, and I’ll bet you could find a way to say it more directly.
Student: Oh, I know. But I sometimes add more words on purpose, so it will make it longer. You know, so it seems like a paper.
Student: Yeah. Teachers seem to like that.
