Why memes are best not done whilst in the middle of writing an assignment

Grab the book nearest you. Right now. Turn to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post that sentence along with these instructions in your LiveJournal. Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

"A third logical step in planning is to establish, circulate, and obtain agreement to utilize critical planning premises such as forecasts, applicable basic policies and existing company plans."

That's from Essentials of Management (fifth edition) by Harold Koontz and Heinz Weihrich. Very dull, but applicable to the essay I'm currently writing.

buymeaclue's example about hand washing before handling snakes was much more interesting. :)

Otherwise I'm trundling on. I think I can say that the Chest Wall Syndrome is just about completely better. I can lie in my normal positions (on my side) to sleep instead of being forced into the only non-painful position available (flat on my back).

The second creative writing assignment was returned to me today and I was chuffed when I saw the mark. Two percent lower than last time, but still almost a distinction. :) As this was a complete story with a middle and an end, I feel that's a success. The first assignment was just a story opening and I find beginnings are much easier to do well. There were a couple of points the tutor raised and I'll make a couple of adjustments and then try submitting the story somewhere.

In slightly less upbeat news, the creative writing class I was hoping to start teaching next Tuesday only has 5 students, so has been postponed for a week. On the other hand, it nearly has enough people for it to run, so that's hopeful. If I can get another 3 it'll be OK.
