The Crunchy T-Shirt

Today in Advanced Composition we had a great time with several students just dropping in from the rafters (as it were) to join us. Come back, please! Also, Catie Eisel brought us definitions from the OED of “whatnot,” a most marvelous word, if you ask me.

These intrepid explorers of the English language are turning in their first writing assignments on Wednesday, 1-17-07, and I do hope they will find the experience of writing and revising stimulating and empowering rather than daunting. Trying to write without revising would be to me like trying to make a batch of HOMEMADE chocolate chip cookies without stirring the batter. It takes elbow grease. Stir your words, Friends! Stir and stir! You’ll get warm chocolaty words in the end! I promise!

Meanwhile, take good care, Dr. Butcher

    I like that analogy. I’ll try and keep that in mind. :) I hope you have a wonderful long weekend!

    Hi there, my friend. Just came across some of your other writings. Wonderful. Just wanted to let you know that I have been praying for you and Phyllis Tickle for your presentation in Tennessee this weekend.
    I hope those people enjoy it and relish it as much as I did the one in Scottsdale…..When are you coming back?
