Response Session: Project2 [English 5]

4 Oct

Please feel free to post, as a response below, what you have so far for Project 2, about your connection to an Author.  It could be the two paragraphs that were due today, or more.  Whatever you have.  Please give us something to which we can respond, offer counsel.  What I’m hoping to see: specific questions for us, something about your submission/post on which you’d like our critique.  And, colleagues, as always, please compliment each other on strengths, so your fellow writers know what they’re doing well!

This is meant to be a workshop.  Like in class, an Exchange of Ideas.  So, without anymore delay, let the offerings show themselves…  (10/3/13)

    So my direction for the book is either the moms impact on the family or each grandparent to parent to child and how each was raised then grew up. I’m not really sure where to go with this because I feel the mom is just a dumb b$&,! I’m just not inspired enough to come up with a length essay on these topics not even out of hate I don’t feel the energy in this class to inspire me more. However do like the fact that some do agree with me and the fact that those who don’t give me a little jump to prove my point on the moms position and how lots of this is her fault and her art is detrimental rather her whole being is detrimental to the family…

    Side note if religion is free and all that good stuff why is it people are being forced or going to be taxed for medical when in fact it is against some religion I.e Christian scientist. That’s asking them to break religion or be penalized for that….. So now what way to go government you just fed up and someone with the power to do something will and there goes your taxe collection. So I hope.

    Ashley.. we still have a ways to go with Ms. Walls’ work, so give it time. And, you responded to an English 5 prompt. I just posted one for your section, the upcoming project. Wait for a bit, do more readings, then reconnect with topic formulation.

    Go enjoy your weekend, we’ll meet Tuesday!
    Cheers — Mike

    Eric Victorino supplies much inspiration but, the trouble I’ve found with relating with this work is that it’s of a man who’s come so close to giving up. Maybe the wall I’m hitting isn’t with relativity but, with wrestling my own negative thoughts. Also, finding a definite statement about depression, since it is such a controversial topic, is nerve-wracking. This is the first part of my intro paragraph:

    Teetering on the brink of depression is like the nauseating feeling of vertigo. You’ve climbed so high, blood, sweat, and tears. This is the moment you finally look over the edge and it feels like the solid ground that once was is now sand slipping away. All the strength you was possessed has been drained. It would be so easy to let it send you careening back down to the bottom. The time is now to make a decision: Fight or give up?
