Brontë & The Tiger Cubs

I honestly do not have enough hours in the day. I still have two chapters left to read in my QuarkXpress training book for Editing & Design. I simply don’t have time to read them. Well, I guess I could be reading them now. But, if I wasn’t typing right now, I’d be sleeping. I […]

Justin Tadlock On Writing

This is a little something I wrote to help me out with a presentation in Fiction Writing I. I gave each student in the class a copy of this and a copy of “Claws.” My teacher actually asked me if she could use this to show other classes. Interview With Aspiring Author Justin Tadlock On […]

Fiction Writing, Cell Phone GPS, & Narnia

It’s been a long two days. And I’m not even through with the stuff that I was supposed to have done today. Well, the only thing I have left to do is finish my short story for Fiction Writing I. I was determined to finish it today, but I simply couldn’t get it done. Fortunately, […]

Sleepless Nights & The Simulated Environment

The 30 Hour Day

There isn’t enough time in the day. I can tell it’s already going to be a long week for me. Wednesday, I have an article due for Newswriting, which I spent about an hour working on tonight. Thursday, I need to have a rough draft of a short story for Fiction Writing I ready for […]

SAT Writing: Colorful Vs. Formulaic

I read an article in Time tonight titled How I Did on the SAT. I have been interested in what the SAT is like now with the additional writing portion that I didn’t have to take. What surprised me the most was John Cloud’s assesment that “the essay readers reward formulaic writing over original voices.” […]
