Primo Levi - Draft I

Karl Bodek & Kurt Conrad Lowe - One Spring (Art from the Holocaust)

1,506 words - first rough draft, but there is a lot of padding to go around it.  Much to be done over the next few days, plus additional reading and sprinkles and such. I feel better as I believe I am about 50% the way there - max word count is 2,500 and I plan to use every tiny word to make this sing.

Right now, I am going to have an early night - note to self, remember to display the resourcefulnes of the characters.

Most displeased to find that the highest that any student can score at degree level is 80%.  This is not localised to Plymouth Uni; it is symptomatic over the entire country. How is this possible? Now, I am no way a genius, but what happens if you were - still only 80%? Because you cannot possibly be writing to MA or PhD standard - even if you are?

Either you have done a pukka job or not.
