    Writing the Boyle paper for me was a lot easier than writing the personal narrative. I found it much easier because I had a guideline to use that I could then base my writing on. I liked this writing process a lot more than the personal narrative too. It was easier to find a thesis throughout the stories and then use... more

    After completing my personal narrative, I am mostly proud of how I was able to convince someone while telling my story. Usually, when I write it is either just to persuade, or just to tell a story, but this paper combined the two. I felt that it would be hard, but I would be able to complete a well-written paper. I... more
