I had two days off. Two days to sit at the computer and agonize and think about how badly I wanted to write without ever actually writing.
I have to work at 1pm.
Guess whose brain has finally decided to start producing words?
So, all summer long, I’ve been smelling a skunk outside my window. Middle of the day, early evening, first thing in the morning. If the window is open, sooner or later, I will smell that damn skunk. Even when my downstairs neighbors are hanging out on their porch, talking.
In fact, especially when my neighbors are talking.
… I think I just figured out what pot smoke smells like, you guys.
Where might I find creative non-fiction and essays online for my students to read that are actually good?
I can’t buy a book because they told me (quite forcefully) that we can’t require another book for the course, and the book the school chose is TERRIBLE, so I’m looking for alternatives.
My students are college freshmen (ages 18-20~) and I would love essays that have a pop-culture base or are written by someone they might know, as that may improve the chances of them actually reading them.
If you don’t have an answer for me, PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST because surely someone might have some recs?
reblogging myself because I could still use some recs.
