The Mark of Zero

How easy it turned out to be to fall off the wagon.

Marking the best part of two hundred thousand words over recent weeks—too many weeks—took its usual toll. There’s reading it all, of course, but writing the comments is the hardest part; trying to justify a mark while offering constructive feedback is never simple. And until I’ve finished, I never feel I can legitimately write anything else, like posts for here. Having to coordinate all the other markers and marks for a course of five hundred students doesn’t help, either.

Now that it’s done and I’ve had a few days to recover, I’ll try to post something every day again for a while.
