When I wrote my Boyle paper I had to follow a strict guild line to ensure that I would cover all of the parts of the requirements that I need to cover. For the Boyle paper I had to use the book for several quotes which made me have to think in a totally different way to make the connections between the events in the stories and the themes that I was talking about. This different way of thinking made me have to look at all of the events that happened in the stories and ask myself why the author put them into his writing. Another difference was that it made me think very hard about the events that happened in my life in good detail so that the audience can get a good picture of what I was writing about. I had to make sure that the audience had a good picture of what was happening. If they could tell what I was saying they could also tell how the events made a significant influence on my life. This process will definitely help me in the future because it can be applied to many different things besides writing a paper. I found the narrative essay the easiest to write. I felt that it was much easier to write about my personal life as well as making the paper flow because I had actually lived what I was talking about. I thought that the Boyle paper was much harder to write because I had to connect the theme to the events in the story. I also thought that the Narrative paper had a wider range on how it was being graded so it was a little easier to start the paper and keep it going. I also think that the Boyle paper followed the organization that was suggested that helped the paper flow from the start to the finish. The way that it was organized, with a quote then an explanation of why it was relevant. If it was not for this organizational method it would have much harder to put together all of the information that I had to include into the paper. 364

    BOO! How did writing your Boyle paper differ from writing your personal narrative? Which one did you find easier to write? What do you feel were the strengths of your Boyle paper? Weaknesses?
