Portfolio 4: Bring on the cookies we're done with blogging! (For now...)

| | Comments (0)
Here is my final portfolio for my News Writing class, which means it is almost time to eat Christmas cookies and be free from class-induced stress!  Hooray!  See how I used that hyphen?  The major writing tip I learned in this class was the use of the hyphen.  I am now observant and careful to use it correctly.  Now I only hope I used the word 'induced' properly...
