Almost Here!

We may not be quite ready, but the new school year is approaching very quickly. I'm hoping to finish painting my house this weekend and then shift my focus back to incorporating all my study from earlier in the summer into making this class better. I hope you are all wrapping up work on your summer assignment (yes, I know at least a couple of you just started looking around for a copy of Huckleberry Finn -- yes that is HUCKLEBERRY FINN. I heard a rumor that someone was convinced the book to read was Tom Sawyer.). See you soon. It's going to be a great year!

Some of you might be interested to find out who you write like. If so, check out this page. I copied several paragraphs from some of my old papers and I got three different results using different papers. Out of five tries, three came back the same though. I'd try it more than once. Kind of interesting. Evidently I write like H.P. Lovecraft with some features of Daniel Defoe's style as well. Though this blog post makes them think of Cory Doctorow. Different voices for different purposes, right?
