Today I have to really put the push on for the book I'm writing: AVOIDING PLAGIARISM. It's hard to work at home sometimes because it feels as if I need to get up and clean the living room or do the laundry, and also I get cooped-up feeling a lot. I also have to watch my Weight Watchers points and not munch all day as I write. Diet Coke already works as a fuel, but that isn't so good for me to consume in large quantities. Anyway, today I will be finishing the 10 types section and setting up a lot of the exercises. I pulled off a lot of sample pieces that I could use for plagiarized /non-plagiarized examples, so I have to mess with those. Examples and exercises and features---need lots of those, as well as to finish ch. 3. I believe I also need to complete the last section of ch. 4. Tomorrow I'll figure out which pieces have been given permission and which still need it, and request those. Kimberly Chase wrote me from Israel, and I have Richard Posner's article and a few others. Should be rolling along now. I need to cook less, write more, websurf less, write more, read less, write more.....etc. Brandon, if you're reading this, I'm working hard. One of these days I need to put my syllabi together but that will have to wait until the book is done. Plus, Nick, I need more illustrations.
