(Note: This is not an A-to-Z Challenge post. I posted for today a short while ago.)
My last assignment for this semester is the digital portfolio due on the 28th. Prior to that, I have a list of exams and other assignments to handle. The very first thing on my list of things to do is to decide what piece I want to bring in tomorrow to be work-shopped. I need to get on that.
I have decided (for now) to have four categories of pieces in my portfolio (subject to change): Reviews, On Writing (I'm totally stealing Stephen King's book title), Fiction, and In-House Professional Writing. I will have three reviews (a short story review, a novella review, and a novel review), two short essays on writing, three stories (one horror, one fantasy, and one sci-fi), and my proposal and press release from the class. Ten pieces might be too much for the portfolio though. I will have to figure out if that is permissible or not. I could always cut it down to four and just use a novella review, one essay on writing, a short story, and either the proposal or the press release. Or I could go with a number in between four and ten.
The largest piece of work I have before me in the next two weeks (other than the portfolio) is a 6-8 page research paper for my Intro to Medieval Art course that is due in class by next Thursday. I have my introductory paragraph done and a good bit of research conducted. I still need to research more and actually write the paper though. That'll probably take at least six hours of work. Hopefully I'll get a lot of work done this weekend so that I can send the draft to my professor for feedback (as she offered to everyone in the class). I think the paper will turn out well, and my grade in that class is quite good, so I'm not drastically worried about it, though I will be if I don't have it finished by the end of Sunday.
