  • Note: Save all the writing you do during the semester. You can clear your files in December. If you compose and revise on a computer, periodically print out (or save on disk) versions of your draft so that you have a record of its process. Keep a copy for yourself (either on disk or a hard copy) of all major assignments handed in to me. In addition, keep all drafts on which you have received comments from me or your classmates.
