Back again!

Hi! I've decided that it would be a really good idea if I continued blogging this year as I am currently taking higher. However, I am unsure of what to write because the course seems to mainly involve writing critical essays. Any advice?

Well, for a start you could start chucking some of your ideas about - the ones you're putting into your Crit. Essays. And you could try launching some of your essay work here ....
Good to have you back blogging!

Oh I know what would be really helpful, if you wouldn't mind could you teach me how to embed quotations? I'm finding that a bit of a problem.

Yes. Go for it. Give me a sample sentence in which you try to embed - copy and paste from whatever you're working on.
Remember the idea is to have a seamless join between what you say and the bit you're quoting - and that includes chopping if need be to avoid the verbs being in the wrong tense for your essay.
It'd be easier for me to teach from you example.
