POST 250 - In high-gear and... not even out of the starting gate!

Did I say I had a couple weeks off from school?

I lied.

Today I received our first assignment.



Did I say my prof is a dear?

This may be true, but she could very well be a tyrant, at the same time.

The assignment is a 1000-word essay on what kind of poetry reader I think I am.

It's a tasty bit because it leaves the door open to a personal response, which is exactly what she's looking for. The assignment is worth 10% of our final grade, and must be handed in at the beginning of our first class. (I quote) "Failure to do so will make you ineligible for a passing grade in the course."

...Guess I'd better get writing!

Oh, and for those of you who read here faithfully, this is my 250th post. Something of a landmark, yes?

Congratulations on the post. Yes, it's an odd way to begin a course.

Given the celebration of your 250th post, the 1000 word essay on what you like doesn't seem that difficult, does it? After all, I'm sure if you copied and pasted some of the posts to a word document and hit "word count", you'd have far exceeded the 1000 word mark.

Happy writing!

Congrats on your 250th post! Sorry about the essay, though! I know you were looking forward to having some "time off!" Although, this essay actually sounds kinda fun-- at least you'll be able to really express yourself and show your particular style and creativity! Good Luck! *hugs*
