and nice first thread post
irony at its finest...
straight from the article:
Writing done while tired is more likely to have errors that go unnoticed. Minor things such as saying "he was tires" instead of "he was tired" when describing how someone was feeling at any given time. This simple typo would have been noticed if you were at your best instead of on the verge of exhaustion when performing your writing. When handwriting things while tired there is a tendency to run word together or resort to abbreviations you wouldn't otherwise use such as b/c for because and @ for at; when you run out of the normal abbreviations you begin to make up your own with the intent of rewriting the piece when you have more time and aren't as tired. The problem comes in the next morning when you can't make since of your own custom short hand.
