From the collection Written Proficiency Comments, by A. Kostia

You cannot write an essay

just by taking sentences

from other sources and replacing

one or two words in them. Sources

are for information, not for

copying sentences from. Write your own

text. Use your own

words. Write about why you believe

these inventions are so significant. Focus

on their role rather than on

random facts about their history.

This should be your own

essay, not a rehash

of a Wikipedia entry.

About This Blog

I'm an American who started blogging when I moved to Russia in 2004. Eventually I moved to Sweden, where life is pleasant but uneventful, and stopped blogging for lack of interesting things to say. And then I joined Facebook, which further destroyed any motivation for blogging. Maybe someday I'll start blogging again, but for now, this blog is dormant, an archive of The Russia Years: 2004-2008.
