I’m convinced. April is International Writing Month. Why? Let me explain:
1. April Camp NaNoWriMo is going on. For those of you who don’t know what it is, It’s pretty much NaNoWriMo, except it’s a lot less intense. You can pick the word amount. And for those of you who don’t know what NaNoWriMo is….here’s the link: nanowrimo.org
Depending on how fast you type and what your goal is, it could take you from 5 to upwards of 40 hours to write it all. That is if you don’t get distracted or slow your writing speed.
2. It’s approaching summative season. Summatives are work work and more work. Specifically, writing, writing and more writing. blech.
Why do we have to have stupid summatives? They just load you up with extra work you really don’t need.
3. Aside from summatives, teachers are just like “Oh, you don’t have enough work yet. Let me give you a writing assignment.” Which takes the form of an essay or a commentary or whatever else like that that they decide to bug you with.
So much stuff to do, not nearly enough time. Add on top of that the joy of eight courses at a time, more than half of them enriched. Thanks IB.
What kind of stuff have you got to do?
