Fall Break–More Medieval Stuff

Monday, November 5, 2007

I took Friday and Monday off work to try to get kick-started on my NaNo manuscript, Peace in the Valley. So far, I’ve managed to complete the second draft revisions on Ransome’s Honor and am trying to get myself motivated to work on Peace by re-reading the eight existing chapters. So, rather than try to come up with a new topic today, I thought I’d upload the paper I mentioned in which I explored the effect of the Norman Conquest on the English language.

Erica suggested I do a blog series on how to be a critical reader—in other words, how to break down a published book to learn from what the writer did. So look for that series to start soon.

It has just started raining, it’s starting to get dark already (yes, at 3:30 in the afternoon–it’ll be fully dark by about 4:45/5:00 this afternoon), and I’m feeling the need for some Earl Grey, hot. So, if you’re interested in English history (both the people and the language), please enjoy . . . and if you’re a professor, please forgive the obvious MLA formatting errors—this was one of the first research papers I wrote upon returning to college as an adult learner.
