Which is highly unfortunate! However, I am currently at… 1025 words! It’s supposed to be 1500-1800 words and I still have my introduction/thesis paragraph (… I have the ‘bare bones’ of it… in note form… highlighted red so I don’t forget it…), which will probably be 250 words. Then I have to conclude my first paragraph still (I’m estimating ~100 words there). And then there’s the conclusion for the paragraph that I’ve written that’s all about borrowing from the Bible (bible? Do I need to capitalize it? I just reference it as ‘scripture’ and ‘biblical passages’…), so probably another 100 words there. And then I need to conclude my damn paper, which will probably be about 300 words… Maybe. Which will bump my total word count up to ~1775 words. Which is going to be awesome as it will fit into the parameters set by my professor.
By the way… I was wondering, does anyone know how one goes about ‘citing’ the Bible? I’m about as atheist as a person can get, so I have no (real) clue as to why I’m writing my term paper on hell and how Marlowe borrows from other works in order to make his ‘hell’ more real so… How does one go about citing the Bible, or is saying the passage number (… or whatever it’s called) enough?
For example, I’m using John 1:8 and John 1:9, can I just go John 1:8 and John 1:9 and not cite it in my Works Cited? I’m assuming so? Because I’m not really sure how one goes about citing a biblical work. And the interwebs are currently failing me…
