mean we have to write at leastSIX HUNDRED WORDS PER WEEK!?!?" It's really not all that much! It's just
two or three pages! In order to get better we have to practice.
In order to get ideas, we have to let them flow. So...
Share your Google Doc called "Your Name-600
Words" ONCE, after the first 600. I will check it every
Tuesday after that; no need to share again. Just keep adding
to the same document, typing the date every time you write
Write 600+ words per
week, Tuesday to Tuesday.
The content doesn't
matter, nor do the mechanics; however, the idea is to get
material to develop into essays, so don't just "blah blah
blah" all the time.
DO NOT DELETE
ANYTHING; it may be useful as a starter for
something else later on. The idea is that at least some of
this writing will be revised into finished pieces. Soon you
will have to start generating your own topics for writing,
so use these warm ups and writing exercises as idea
Always write the
date and the number of words
every time you write. (Highlight and choose Word Count
Yes, you will receive extra
credit for totals greater than 600!
