Click, click, click.
That's the sound of a roller coaster as it's just barely getting started. You hear a few slow clicks, and then there's more and more acceleration, and then you're in for the ride, climbing fast up to the high peaks, getting great views, and then plummeting quickly down into the valleys, only to swoop up again. You can't get off, so you figure you might as well get into it and enjoy all the ride has to offer.
That's the way a semester of teaching legal writing often feels. Many of us are right now at the "click, click, click" stage, as we prepare to meet our first-year students later this week or next.
Hang on and get ready to have a great ride!
