The amount of progress I have made on this paper is limited to say the least. I found my sources and I tried to figure out how to cite the sources before I realized the databases provided by the school provide the citation. I found and cited more than 15 sources for my topic to ensure that I will have the correct amount of sources relating to my specific topic. My topic I finally decided to use is the major areas and causes of deforestation. Although there are only a few different causes for my topic, the different areas provide different resources and reasons for deforestation. I plan to work on writing the bibliographies now that I have alphabetized all my sources.
This paper has differed from many of the other papers I have written in that it is more focused on detailing the information within the sources, rather than applying the knowledge of the sources to help explain a topic to a particular audience. I cannot remember writing an annotated bibliography in previous years, so I am unsure of the correct way to do so without looking at our handy syllabus and the example on the website. The papers I have written before have all been about researching a topic and informing an audience of the research you found with a personal aspect of what you conclude. This paper is only describing the research of others to allow an audience to use the information to choose reliable sources.
As with all other assignments in my English classes, the biggest problem I have faced during the writing process of this paper was procrastination and actually starting the paper. I dislike writing with a passion so I am never thrilled to notice the due date of a paper approaching quickly. The other challenge I faced while attempting to write what I have written thus far was the idea of making the description similar yet different for every single bibliography. The sources I found are different in only a few aspects. The amount of sources also made it difficult to pick a topic. The topics I thought about before did not have the adequate amount of sources that followed the 2007 to present guideline. Many of my sources are print based and web based which helps me not have to visit the library any more than I have to.

    What progress (if any) have you made on your annotated bib? How has this paper differed from others you've done? What challenges have you faced doing this assignment?
