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.

Reminder: St. Charles 096 Developmental Classes

Remember that our individual conferences start tomorrow, so only come for the conference time you signed up for. Be sure to bring your graded Description Paper and one writing problem you want to work on.

If you miss your conference time, you must reschedule or you will be counted absent for three class periods. My email is if you have questions.

We will be back to regular class meetings on Wednesday, March 3.

Reminder: In addition to finishing the final draft of the research paper, remember to read the literature pages assigned for next week.  Be sure to note any questions you have as you move through the stories, so we can discuss them in class.
