We're in the lab now and everyone is blogging away! I didn't get a chance to write on this weblog last week as our server was down. Weblog nightmare! Even if I couldn't blog, I was thinking about all of you!
Today everyone brought their second drafts of the stories about what you are passionate about - much better. Everyone is busy typing.
Next, you will spend time commenting on each other's weblogs. Remember to bump those comments up! No more, just simply, that's good writing, that's great, etc. Now I know, you love to hear that! You can still complement. Of course, you can, but do it on something in the story. Do it in a way that lets your friends know they are improving. Make it more specific on what exactly could be better. What a help that will be to your friends. Remember, that's what it's all about - a little help from our friends.
You were really warming up to our discussion about our special project. Great job- our room was just buzzing with lively discussion. Then we zoomed down to the lab to become busy bees writing our hearts out!
