For the weekend:

Please read the paper copy I gave you in class of “Hills Like White Elephants” by Ernest Hemingway. What on earth are they talking about? How does it make you feel? Leave a brief comment discussing the process of discovery you went through reading this piece.

Writing Assignment 3.a

Like I said in class:
I want you to eavesdrop/overhear/try to remember a conversation and dictate it to me. Just use a standard format like so:

Person A: I am talking to person B
Person B: Yes, you are. And we are having a lovely time of it.

Give them better names than that. Think “Pumpkin” and “Honey Bunny.” Just a page is fine. We’re going to be using these in class and you will be asked to share them so keep that in mind.

And finally, here are some of the clips we watched in class featuring great dialogue/monologue, and a few we didn’t get to.
