I write for myself, for the web, and for everyone who gets me. I've been on a fasting liquid diet, traveled to Europe, and raised 2 kids. And I'm directionally challenged - I get lost a lot.

Research Paper and Assignments Due Tonight Plus Test on Research Writing

Your Major Assignments Handout has instructions for turning in the Research Paper and Research Project Assignments (I'd prefer the copies I made comments on).

Be sure to submit your paper to before class and print everything before you get here!

We will take the test first, then start our discussion of Literature. Be sure to bring the book, Literature and Its Writers and you may want to check out its companion website for further resources.

Class Reminder for the Week of August 6, 2008

Hi all. Sorry if you've emailed me since Thursday. My mom's been in the hospital, so I just got back into town today. I should be caught up on email reponses, but let me know if I missed anyone.

Due this week:
Remember to bring two copies of your first draft and your outline - one to turn in with your outline (in a folder) and one to keep for peer review purposes. Get as much done as you can on the draft. This is my only opportunity to give you feedback before you have to turn the paper in.
