6. Read the provided scene from This Gulf of Time and Stars. Find the errors within the text and show their correction. Where you see "000," that's your cue to suggest what could go there.

*This was fascinating for me--and looked like fun for those who did it. I will say few noticed that "000" was their chance to create something new.

Instructions: For Questions 1-5, please copy the above questions into the body of your email and answer them there. For Question #6, please save the scene as a file name with this format: yourlastnamescene.docx Make your corrections within the text so I can see them (not via tracking or anything fancy, just pick something to make them stand out) and attach to the email with your other answers.
