The process behind writing the argument paper was pretty simple. For the paper about MMA I would think or find a reason as to why the opposition would want to have the sport banned and then search through the internet to find support that in the case the sport should remain legal. I would say that the greatest challenge in writing the paper would have to be finding proper support in the claims of why the sport should remain legal. Along with that it was difficult to a useful print source to go along with the argument. Finding the print source took the longest amount of time to find, it took more time to find one that could be used in the paper than finding all the other sources combined. For the strong points in the paper I believe I have a few. I believe that I provided proper support that would explain why the sport should remain legal as it is now and had good reasons as to why. Along with that I was able to find plenty of sources that provided support in the argument that I had chosen to take my side in. For the paper my main concern is whether I may or may have not relied too much on the support of my sources. I fear that I may have used more of what others said that what I myself wrote for the paper. Another concern that I have about the paper is maybe that I did not give enough direct reasons that would impact the argument. Going to this I believe that I did have proper support for the argument but what I mean is that I feel like maybe I left out some keys points that should have been talked about for the argument paper. All in all I believe I had a decent paper overall even though I feel like there are some tweaks and some things that I would like to be able to add to the paper. I look forward to getting the paper back and seeing what had been done well and what could have been done to make the paper better.
