My Journal

“My best friend other than my husband is my Journal. It lets me say anything I want to say. My Journal never tries to hold me back, nor will it put me down. Unlike my computer or teachers, it never complains if I misspell words or punctuate incorrectly. I can talk about my friends or my enemies and say anything I feel like saying about them. My Journal sets me free.
Therefore, here goes my Journals debut.

Class was so tedious today. Dr. French told us to write that dreadful and greatly detested “RESEARCH” paper. Dr. French is not on my good list today. I think I will write a story about a Horrible, cruel, detestable English teacher and name the main character, you guessed it, Dr. French. I will call my story “The Punisher” after her.

Dr. French has redeemed herself with the class today. She is on my good list as of now. She told us today that we would not be having a midterm or final this semester. Instead, we will be writing more stories, so that we can become better writers, Yea, Dr. French. I cannot believe Callie asked Dr. French to give us more writing assignments than we already are getting. Callie is on my poop list now, and will probably stay there. I only took this class in the first place because I was told it was a “3 easy credits class, from that so called ex-friend of mine, Linda. What a looser. She was telling me about a date she went on and the guy’s wife caught them together. The creep she was with, told his wife that Linda was a co-worker and that they had just gone out to talk about some important, work related issues. I cannot believe that she is still seeing him.

I wrote my 1000 word short story for this week. Everyone seemed to love it. Dr. French gave me a high grade on it also. My story was called “Born Looser,” staring none other than Linda. Of course, I changed the names and I added and embellished the story to a great degree, but ex-friends are good for something. I must remember to write everything I hear that sounds funny or dumb, or just different into my Journal. I have learned that these kinds of things will help my story writing tremendously.

I had points knocked of my story today. My fault and I know it. I forgot the cover sheet with the story name, professor’s name and date on it. Now I know to write everything she tries to teach us in my Journal
What did I learn today=
#1 Follow all instructions given by the professor.
#2 Separate characters by speakers and put them in separate paragraphs.
Ex.: What are you asking me? Gary said. Jan replied. I ask you where … (this is wrong)
(This is the correct way to write it.)
Ex. What are you asking me, Gary asked?
Jan replied, I asked you where…
#3 Always put a comma before your, but. (When writing)
