|05:18 pm - Looking for a few good submissions|
I'm on the look out for a few good DP submissions.
I've already stolen zalon_draconis' essay on wisdom because I felt it fit into the "excellent" category, so I need a brave soul or two who would like to submit a Virtues essay that is "excellent" (i.e. not merely "adequate), preferably one that is not a Wisdom essay.
I'm also going to see what I can find from my fellow Deputy Preceptors, if they have any ideas. . .
Lemme tell you, though: writing examples of DP work that is "inadequate" is. . . quite fun. :)
zalon_draconis, I'll need to get your written permission to use it, of course, and I'll also want you to approve of the critique I wrote of it, which I'll send you as soon as I can dig up an email address and copy/paste my comments into an email (shouldn't take long, probably later tonight).
Anyway, enough about DP stuff. I got to chat with erienc over the phone this morning. Quite nice.
Sorry, shizukagozen: no recordings were made, so you know it was tame *sighs*
I'm dropping out to get some catfood, and then it's back to the grind trying to get this DP Virtues book out. :) I expect to have it finished/edited this weekend.

I'll have to go back through and pick them out in the near future (prob. Monday, when I have a higher speed connection available). Are there any that you really liked? If there are, those would be better for me to check out, as I'd like to have the essays people are most proud of rather than the ones that they thought were good, but not their favourites :)
I still really like my integrity essay, though it is rather personal. Would you like me to email it to you?
Personal isn't an issue with me, and can actually be a strength. It'd be nice to see something personal (that isn't made up by me) as an example in this thing. If you're willing, I'd love to read over it. I'll drop it back to you exactly as it will appear, if I can use it, and with the "why it's excellent" bit as well (which is a description of the strengths and weaknesses of the piece; obviously more strength than weakness in terms of this one).
It'd be appearing in a book on how to complete the requirement, that, if approval is given, will end up possibly as widely used as that Wheel of the Year thing I wrote. So if the personal thing is cool with you there, it's cool with me.
Let me know what name you want appearing with it, as well.
I'll read it and drop you a line back tonight, if you send it in the next couple hours.
Do you need my email addy?
I do need your email address. I can also revise a bit if you'd like.
