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…

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.

All I could think about was being home.
I learned a lot about prayer in those days.
It got me through.

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 enjoy the blog articles the most, but also like doing the press releases.

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