Readings Start Next Week
Grad Reading on Monday, Turnbull Lecture on Tuesday.

Scenes: A Ocean of Mini-Stories
The standard model for Freytag's Pyramid is very simple.  What's wrong with it?

Group Activity - count all the scenes in the two stories read for today.  Which story seems more complex?  Which one was easier to follow?  Which one was more interesting?

The Modified Freytag's Pyramid Is Really a Fractal
Each individual scene in a story works as its own Freytag Pyramid


In small groups, start by writing scene drafts.  Each scene draft should have a beginning, middle, and an end.  Then rotate the paper to the next person.  Each person reads on the previous scene, and then writes the next.

  4. Dievas watches, which range in price from $140 to $340, is the third most popular brand sold at retail shop Gnomon Watches, which is also owned by Mr Tan. The other two brands are German label Steinhart and Italian diving watch brand Squale. Three hundred pieces of the first repliche orologi Dievas watch were produced when it launched, with production increasing by 5 per cent every year. In 2005, 1,500 Dievas watches were sold. The brand has about 60 repeat customers, most of tag heuer replica whom have been with it since the beginning. "A lot of our regular customers own Rolexes and other high-end watches, but I don't think our customers are about showing off," says Mr Tan. The watches also sell iwc replica watches well in Bangkok, Thailand. Retail sales manager Chong Jun Hao, 34, who has five Dievas watches, says he discovered the label eight years ago at Gnomon Watches while buying a panerai replica Steinhart watch. At the time, there weren't a lot of German-made watches that were priced at entry-level prices, below $150. So that brand caught my eye. The watches are reliable, tactical watches and you can tell that a lot of effort has gone into the build and design.

  6. This reason alone make this replica watches replica such a fun watch to wear, it always gets people to have a second look. No worries about being called out with a fake since it’s such a clean looking dial and case, with so many variations as an original. Probably the biggest giveaway would be the date window, which is cut a little different from what you would see in an original, but even so, you would really have to know your watches to spot this difference. The color isn’t a factor, I’ve seen both white and black date displays.

    Here’s the video, as promised, to end this replica rolex review. Let me know what you guys think, feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

  7. Replica Hublot Caviar Black Montre
    Donc, cette Hublot Caviar Black examen montre réplique de photo me fit lever la fausse pièce Hublot Caviar Black pour se rendre compte que coûteux, car il ressemble est légèrement au-dessus du Hublot moins cher replique de montre à seulement 7k $ ou 8k $ pour l'original. Je sais que tout un tas d'argent que vous les gars, mais c'est l'extrémité inférieure des montres Hublot vous devez savoir maintenant. Il est un morceau propre et, évidemment, il est tout noir sur noir que ce n'est pas facile de résister.

  10. El TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrotimer Flying 1000 es uno de los relojes más caros de Tag Heuer que se venden por más de 80k. Sí, 80k es una cantidad replicas relojes espana enorme de dinero para un reloj no importa cómo lo mires. Mide hasta 1/1000 de segundo y es sin duda un logro asombroso de la artesanía de Tag Heuer.

    Difícil de
    replicas rolex sacar esto de mi mente. De todos modos, porque es un buen espectador y porque debo admitir tener un punto débil para replicas breitling, he buscado un goof falso Tag Mikrotimer para añadir a mi colección. No hay muchos sitio web que ofrece este modelo y aún menos mostrándolo en buena calidad, así que creo que muchos de ustedes apreciarán una revisión de fotos de mi nueva Tag Heuer Mikrotimer réplica reloj.
