Before my senior year in high school I had done little to no writing for literary purposes. Most of the writing I had done before this was hardly even what I would consider academically useful or helpful because they were usually assignments of writing one paragraph or something similar to that. Not until my senior year of high school did I have to write a paper longer than one or two pages, and even then that was because these were assigned in my community college classes or responses to the SAT prompts. If I had never written a multiple page paper before I think that I would have been more intimidated by the personal narrative assignment, and I would have struggled a lot more. I was glad to get the paper back today and see what I can improve on. The grade I received was right where I was expecting it to be and I think that it was a good start for me. Given the little amount of writing I have actually done it will probably be no surprise when I say I havenít ever written a literary analysis or a poem analysis. To be honest I donít even know what either of those are. Therefore, a couple of questions I have going into the TC Boyle paper are will I have to use literary or poem analysis when I am composing it? Will it be in the same format as the personal narrative paper? Should I have a different approach going into the TC Boyle paper than I had when I was writing the personal narrative? Will you give us examples for the TC Boyle paper like you did for the personal narrative? Is there a strategy to picking the two different stories that I will compare and contrast? Will you grade it the same way as you graded the personal narrative? I feel like the personal narrative paper was easier to write than this one will be, do you think this could be true? And my last question is, do you think that we can find a time thatís convenient for you to work on my thesis writing? In my personal narrative you said I had no thesis, but I thought that I did my best work on the introduction, so I am just a little confused.

    What kinds of papers have you written before in terms of literature? Have you ever done a literary analysis? Poem analysis? What questions do you have going into this TC Boyle paper?
