Writing my Boyle paper was different then writing my personal narrative paper because I actually had a set map I could use. My narrative I had a lot of questions just about the set up as apposed to the Boyle paper we kind of already had a lay out. My personal narrative was a challenge for me from the start I wasnít sure what I was going to write about. When I figured out my topic I still had trouble-reaching page four so I felt like I rambled a lot. I felt like the narrative was easier to write in perspective because there was no wrong or right answer to what has occurred in your personal narrative. The Boyle paper I had no problem reaching my page requirements and everything I wrote was useful. Overall the Boyle paper was easier to write because we had a set way to write and we knew if it was wrong. I really enjoyed and it helped me a lot when we went over in class how to write the Boyle paper so I wasnít just lost the whole time. Knowing exactly what went in each paragraph really helped me understand what exactly I was looking for throughout the process. The narrative paper we were more on our own about how to write it and how to set it up. Iím not a strong writer anyways so that definitely didnít help me. I felt like my strengths in the Boyle paper were being able to follow the map and create the right idea on the paper. I am also very strong in researching and organization so that helped when I was able to do research ahead of time. My weakness on the Boyle paper was trying to actually figure out what Boyle was implying. I donít like trying to guess at whatís going on or what someone is trying to make feel or me think. Overall I enjoyed writing the Boyle paper more just because it went so fast and I didnít have to keep stretching out words in order to make my page numbers.

    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?
