A lot of the things I have posted recently are things taken from my writing journal. For the journal, I am supposed to use about one page of space (sometimes more, sometimes less) to complete the assignment. There are four to be completed each week (sometimes I don’t do that many, because I write a lot in some). The writing journals can be either from a set topics list, assignments from the text or they can just be things of observations, or other experiments with writing. When I place an assignment as “Journal – Free Assignment: %something else here%”, the “%something else here%” portion indicates a self assigned topic.
