Writing 11/13

We will start the “Writng and Editing for Digital Media” topic the Tuesday after Thanksgiving break.  For today please write on this topic – we will discuss your thoughts in Meta (trending topics) tomorrow.

Stan Lee died yesterday.  He was an American comic book writer, editor, and publisher. He was the editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, and later its publisher and chairman of the company.

Who is your favorite Marvel character and why?  Describe your character’s physical appearance, actions, and emotions with detail.  Also, most of Lee’s characters have some human flaws as well as amazing powers, so don’t forget to mention those.

New Writing Class Yahoo!

Hi!  Thank you for signing up for my new writing class.  I hope we can become a community of writers and have fun.  I am always open to ideas on types of writing, but my overall goal is to prepare you for the next step in school, at a college or a job.  Almost every career and life, in general, requires writing. The better you can write and communicate your ideas, the more power you have.

I also think it is important that you write for your own enjoyment too.  The general format of this class is an introduction of a topic with a short lecture on Tuesdays and then I will ask you to submit your writing by Friday.  Grades will not be given, but I will give feedback to help you become a better writer.  

Students in this class are: Ellie, Cozette, Chloe, Anna, Lola, Mya, Finn and Will

Gatsby Group for Wednesday: Chapter 3

In Chapter 3 of The Great Gatsby, we finally – finally! – we get to see one of Gatsby’s totally off the hook parties! And, it more than lives up to the hype as far as Nick is concerned. Even more excitingly, we finally get to meet the man, the myth, the legend himself – Gatsby, in the flesh! So why then does this reveal, which the novel has been building toward for 2.5 chapters, seem so anticlimactic?
