Poetry Workshop: Today: McClintock, Cavender and Fox (we didn’t quite finish the last one).

Fifth rotation pieces are due on the blog by 9 a.m. tomorrow. I’ll try to give packets out before the end of the day.

Short Fiction Workshop: Today we workshopped Sydni. Kat was absent and so will be held over to Monday. Also handed out: Cecilia, Rae, Kelly, and Christy. ALL of these should be ready to go on Monday and we will do as many as we can. Things are going to pile up fast so do not wait till the last moment!

Long Form Workshop: Finish a Long way down and post comments to our blog. I’m looking for something longer (like a page.) Please focus your comments on qualities in the writing as well as any thematic qualities you notice.

Daily Prompt: Today we honored people who do things they deserve to be thanked for, but who haven’t been thanked (by you, anyway). We put together a tribute I like to think of as “The Bus Driver’s Prayer.” It was stirring.

The real reason for this — maybe we should say the other reason for this — was the second required prompt for this week: you must choose one person from your list and write them a fan letter. It might be funny, but it should be sincere. It should definitely be fan-ish. And I hope we’ll hear a few Monday.

BatCat: Work work work.

7/8 Lit Arts: Your 250 word typed pitch for your final project is due. Please explain your idea in the details we discussed in class. If you have questions, feel free to email me.

7th Grade:

Survey: Screenwriting: Today was another work day. Your screenplay excerpts are due next Wednesday.
