X2: Event-Based Writing


Read and respond to your revisions, following the script we used in class on Wednesday. Make sure you discuss each piece for at least 10 minutes, but not more than 15.

Revising Plan

Send me a post-workshop email. Remind me what your piece is about. What did your readers have to say about it ? What are your plans for it now? Will you continue working on this piece, or set it aside? If you do plan to keep working on it, what changes or additions are you considering? How can I help?

The more detailed  your plan, the more likely I am to be able to offer you useful advice. Try to make your email at least 200 words or so. Ask me specific questions. As Tom Cruise says in Jerry Maguire, help me help you. If you possibly can, please send me this note by 5:00 PM today. Together this plan and your written comments on the pieces by your group will count for 10 points toward your final course grade.
