11/21/14 – Pre-break work

What I Did Today, I spent my 50 minutes revising my project. I went through the story paragraph by paragraph and edited it. I first edited for content, adding some to paragraphs that needed it, deleting a few parts, and revising confusing sentences. I then copy edited, looking for things like grammar and spelling.

11/5/14- Project Three Planning

10/29/14 – Beginning Project 3
