The Boyle paper differed from the personal narrative because I felt I knew exactly the way the paper needed to be organized and a pretty general way it needed to be written. The papers you handed out in class helped a lot with writing my analysis because I had no idea where to even begin with my intro and using those papers gave what I wanted to say and helped me not get off track. Once I filled out those worksheets writing the paper was super easy and quick because I just followed the observation, quotation, and explanation guideline and that really took up a lot of my paper and was very simple and self-explanatory. Even though you did tell us what you were looking for in our writing for the narrative paper, I felt more confident in my writing for this paper because I knew exactly what you wanted. I felt like my strengths in my Boyle paper were that I had good textual support for my analysis and gave a good in depth explanation of everything. My weakness was probably my conclusion because I felt that I was repeating myself a lot and wasn’t exactly sure what was suppose to be in it. But over all I really enjoyed writing this paper and I took my critics from my last paper and really tried to apply them to this like having more paragraph breaks and really trying to stay on topic and not give miscellaneous information not related to my topic of the story. I felt a lot more confident on this paper when I was writing it because in the past I had to do a paper on a story about its reoccurring themes and I had no idea how to write it or support my topic but with this I really knew exactly what I was going to write and what I wanted to say. I feel like I did way paper on this paper than the narrative because this paper was more specific and I like being told what exactly you are looking for in my paper.

    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?
