R is for Review: Peer Review of Freshman Essays

Every semester, I require my students to participate in Peer Review Exercises.  Freshman writing students look at each other’s paper and try to help.  The problem is usually variety of ability and lack of confidence.   Some students have very little experience writing and editing papers, while others came from excellent high school programs or just basically like to write and have done a lot of it.  Others admit to never reading never actually writing more than a two page…

Enjoy It While It Lasts...

Picture

I didn't listen.  I must have been told a few hundred times, but still I didn't listen.  And now?  Now I regret not listening.  Mewho tries to choose carefully so there are no regrets...All of them.  Seventeen plus years of the comments.  Seventeen years of well-meaning relatives, friends and strangers telling me, "Enjoy your…

Applying To College

Picture

At 12:40 pm on Tuesday, November 5, 2013, my son texted me the following: "I just applied to college."  He and I had recently returned from a second trip to a particular college he was interested in attending in the fall.  He knew that he wanted to apply to the college and that he wanted to play his sport there.  This trip would solidify whether he wanted to apply Early Decision, also…

Pray and Stay Awake

I went away to school.

Far away.
It was the most difficult four months of my life.
But I learned a lot.
Most importantly, I learned that I really don’t like to be away from family.
All I could think about was being home.
I learned a lot about prayer in those days.
It got me through.
My five roommates…

This picture of my brother, Neal, was taken at the U.S. Open Golf Tournament in Pinehurst, North Carolina, in June of 1999, one month before he died of an accidental drug overdose. He was only 37 at the time.

My brother touched the lives of many with his wonderful sense of humor, his…

Work, School, Meds, and a Petition

It's been a long time since I've updated! I've been busy with life, and haven't had time to write. I've been working as a freelance copywriter for a Marketing company in Florida for a while now. I've been writing Press Releases, Blog Articles, Email Drips, a Q&A, FAQ, etc. It's good work and I enjoy it - for the most part. I enjoy the blog articles the most, but also like doing the press releases.

The company is called Transformational Outsourcing, and hopefully it'll look…

"Braaaaaaains," Moans the Zombie; and I Am Not Heroic.

I've been thinking a lot about brains lately.  I'll get to the zombies in a bit; first I wanna talk about brains.  If that bores you just skip it.  

The human mind is an amazing thing.  The way it works - or doesn't work - is fascinating.  

Brains are like…

Some gifts are hoped for; some gifts we can't anticipate

    When I feel discouraged, I remember an accomplishment.  This could be moving to a new area and taking risks to learn the town and meet people.  Or it could mean publication or a kind word from someone. 

    As I am sending out my writing again, I will inevitably face more rejections/disappointments. It helps to remember that my book was a finalist in the 2011 Emergency Press International Book Contest.

    Emergency…
