Writing the Boyle paper was so much easier than writing my personal narrative. I find my life to be boring so it was kind of hard to write it. The Boyle paper was easier because I actually knew what I had to do to complete the paper nicely. My Boyle paper was a comparison, so it was definitely easy to write and it was pretty quick. The strengths of the Boyle paper were the analysis parts. The story “Carnal Knowledge” had way better analysis than the story “Modern love.” The first story was so much easier to describe because it happened in parts and the second story just kind of went with the flow. The weaknesses in my paper were definitely the second story “modern love.” I don’t know what happened when I was trying to describe that story. It was clearly not as good as the other story. I was trying too hard to make changes to it and I think I made it worse. The comparison paragraph was good as well as the contrasting paragraph because I actually knew what I was talking about. I pointed out the major difference which was that the male character in one story got what he wanted and the other guy did not. The guy who got what he wanted in the first story was over the girl in the end and had a great meal at a stop off of the highway. The male character in the other story was not over his girl. He started throwing the L bomb around. He told the female that he loved her and she said she was sorry. That would hurt anyone’s feelings. I was even hurt a little bit for him. For the comparison paragraph I talked about how both female characters were crazy and put the men throughout a lot of stuff. Overall my paper is pretty reasonable. It is not hard to read but the reader may not get through. I am proud of my paper but it is not my best work. I am looking forward to working hard on the argument paper.
