I keep this Microsoft Word file on my desk called “everygradassignment.doc.” I just pasted in that last reading summary, and I am quite proud to say that I just surpassed 10,000 words written for the semester in my two classes. I’m hoping that with 15- and 18-page term papers still to be written, I’ll double that before Christmas.
Maybe “hoping” isn’t quite the right word.
Keeping track of wordcounts is a quick path to madness. When you’ve written 75000 words on a season of American Idol, gimme a call. Sigh.
