Wrapping up the "111 Words" course

Today is the last day that the students in my course "111 Words a Day: A Writing Project" have to write their daily text. Their writing has developed incredibly quickly in the course of the past 14 weeks. After I had gone over some of their early texts to highlight ways to make their writing more precise, concise, clear, and convincing, the daily practice led them to a wonderful combination of those goals and their increasingly individual styles. If they can take what they've learned from this project and apply their newly developed skills and styles to their papers for the university, then the course will have been a complete success.
