Wednesday, March 11

Today is Wednesday of WEEK 8 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 7 Storybook assignment yet, you may still do that for partial credit. Wednesday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Tuesday.

Storybook Stack. There are still quite a few Storybook assignments in the stack and I am making my way through them in the order that they were turned in. If you turned something in before 10PM on Sunday, you should have comments back from me already. If you turned something in later on Sunday or on Monday or Tuesday, it is probably still in the stack. If you want to check and make sure your assignment is in the stack, you can see the contents of the stack here.

Spring Break. (repeat announcement) Spring break is next week! That means the assignments for Week 8 are spread out. You have the usual Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday assignments this week, March 10-12. Then, the weekend assignments are not due until at the end of spring break, with the grace period on Monday after Spring Break, March 23. I won't be doing any Storybook grading over the Spring Break, so if you want to get ahead and receive comments back from me before the Spring Break begins, please get your early assignments turned in by this Friday, March 13 (yes, Friday the 13th!) at noon. If you can get a Storybook assignment turned in by Friday at noon, I will get comments back to you before Spring Break.

March 11: Douglas Adams. Today marks the birthday of Douglas Adams, one of my most beloved writers, who sadly left this world in 2001. Adams is most famous as the creator of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and his two books about the detective Dirk Gently are also priceless. Happy birthday to you, Douglas Adams, wherever in the galaxy you may be!
