Project Description

It's important to try out what I've described in the lectures. This project provides some exercises to do just that. This project has three parts: 

1) Write one example of each sentence pattern. Have fun with this. 

2) Write a 50-word paragraph of short sentences describing action (real or fiction). 

3) Write a 50-word paragraph of 1 freight-train sentence describing a dream or emotional moment.
