I’m on year eight (of seriously pursuing publication) and I still need this reminder sometimes. Thanks, Mette.
So many young writers have asked me for advice on publication lately. Here it is: don’t give up. Write a little every day. Don’t be in such a rush to publish that you don’t take the time to develop and sharpen your skills. And, again, don’t give up.

WAM Post #2:
Here is a commercial that I saw the other day on TV. I found it particularly funny as well as true. Some commercials these days really are pointless in their advertising. This commercial is for U by Kotex making fun of their competition who use the typical advertising for pads/tampons. I think that the ultimate goal of this commercial is to make those women who aren’t already aware that they shouldn’t just trust a commercial for what they are advertising, but they should try out the product for themselves and see if they like it or not and whether it works for them at all. It’s clever and funny, I think Kotex did a good job on this commercial.
Response to Jody Shipka’s: “Sound Engineering: Toward a theory of multimodal soundness”.
Both with a class like Shipka’s or this WAM class I think it seek to accomplish giving its students the tools and resources to communicate efficiently and comfortably through social media platforms while emphasizing their own creativity that might be unique to certain platforms. I think that students are being asked to be innovative in how they compose their response to a given task. Skills needed, developed, or refined would be any dealing with being proficient with various printed text/media platforms. The responsibilities that I see myself having in this class are the four that Shipka mentioned on page 358-359 (or pages 4 and 5). That being how a student accomplishes a task through any form of printed text, learning the process in generating a product or “multipart event” (page 358/4), determining the resources or technologies that could be needed in completing a product, and finally determining which is the best printed text/media platform to display a product on. Personally, I want to accomplish just becoming more comfortable with communicating through different forms of printed text/media and thinking more critically about why I am choosing to compose something on that platform and not somewhere else, I also want to be able to determine if the product I am looking to put onto a particular platform is even appropriate for that platform, why I am posting it in the first place, and how I can make the product unique to me and stand out among similar products.
