I am really hoping to see an improvement in the work of you all this New Year. You still have a limit of two essays a day, but if you feel you need to write only one per day to show an improvement, so much the better. The vast majority have it within them to write really good essays about their topics. Take your time. Think what you want to say. Think about how you intend to say it, then review it in your mind once more before beginning to write.
Scores will be more stringently applied this year. Poor work will be scored as low as six.
If you get nine, which is going to be really difficult, make sure you write even better in your next essay. Your goal is TEN, always strive for it. It is achievable, and all of you have the ability to achieve it.
Remember what I have said repeatedly … reading is your way forward.

If anyone submits a second essay without awaiting the edit of the first, then both essays will be ignored. All corrections will be done so that you can easily find them by reviewing the edit. You don’t have to rewrite your work, just make sure that you don’t repeat the same mistake again.
If you still have not mastered punctuation, then spend an hour or so in doing so. It isn’t brain surgery … just do it!
Topic titles should be checked for correctness. Posts without topic titles will also be ignored.

OK, let’s look forward to a really successful New Year, with lots of brilliant essays being turned in by you lot.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all.
