Writing to find an idea is different than what I’ve normally done but it wasn’t that hard. I thought about a few different topics I could write about, and just started my introduction letting whatever one was strongest stay. When I revised the essay, I just made sure to hit the same main points and places in the book that I knew were particularly important to what I was talking about, even though I changed a lot of what I said from the first writing.
I think that my voice in my work is similar to my everyday voice. With my paper I’m not really trying to convince anyone to see the way that I do, I’m more of explaining how I see it, as well writing thoughts that may change my perspective. I think in other writing I write a little stronger than I speak. I think this voice is appropriate because it isn’t a traditional paper.
I did two things that I found to be risky, but they aren’t particularly so, just risky for me. I did different separation for my paragraphs, and I added questions to my paper. I’m not sure I like the paragraph sizes, but I think with added work it could help my work flow better. I do like the questions though for this type of essay. Other than dialogue I’ve never added questions to writing before.
I think that I could continue to work on my introductory paragraph. I always feel like I have the most trouble writing these but I think its just about practice. I also want to work on adding more imagery so that my paper is more interesting.
