Week 8 progress

1. I am happy with my progress so far. I currently have an A in this class and I have a little breathing room due to my extra credit. I am most proud of the stories I have written because before this class I probably have written a fictional story since 7th grade. The class assignments I enjoy the most are the extra credit options or when I get to write a story about whatever I want. I changed the theme of my blog and site so things are going well.

2. I need to fix my grammar on my stories which is one of the pitfalls I want to avoid. One thing new I want to try is some of the extra credit options I avoid each week.


Week 8 comments and feedback

1. I have enjoyed the comments I have been receiving. The comments I enjoy the most are the ones that actually give me feedback to fix my paper instead of just telling me how much they like my story.

2. I would say I am giving pretty good comments. I try to tell them what I like about their story and then try and tell them one thing they could fix.

3. I haven't really gotten to know anyone through this class other than reading their introductions.

4. I might add a couple more pictures on my comment wall so it isn't so bland.

5.

I chose this picture because I actually enjoy the comments that point out errors so I can make my story better.
