So, my apologies in advance, but today will be a short post, as I’m nearing the end of National Novel Writing Month and I’m, unfortunately, nowhere near finished. That means you guys get a shorter blog post than normal today while I try to catch up to par.
ANYWAY, today we’re reading the rest of part 1 of Oedipus, which we started yesterday, and we’ll read in the same format we did yesterday as well. Afterwards, we’ll continue our sonnet composition. If we have oodles and oodles of extra time, we’ll go over a PowerPoint I have on iambic pentameter and poetic meter. WHEE!
