Ok. All that stuff about posting soon? The promises of book reviews, pithy insights, etc., etc.? Yeah, well, don't hold your breath.
I received an e-mail from my coordinator today, asking me if I would be willing to take on another course. I'm already teaching a full load, but there's a sudden need for a permanent substitute for this course, and apparently I'm the best candidate.
This isn't just another section of a course I'm already teaching, either. Right now I'm teaching Canadian Women Writers, Detective Fiction and Cracking the Code, the aforementioned critical thinking course. All of these are post-intro level courses. The new course is Literature and Composition, a.k.a. college English 101.
So this request represents four more hours in the classroom, plus a whole lotta prep hours, not to mention many, many more essays.
Naturally, I said yes.
Which means that my blogging - not to mention my social life, my weekends, and my laundry - will pay the price. At least until all those essays come in and I need a distraction.
Wish me luck!
