Pappas 1 Kelcie Pappas 1/22/07 Section #14 JA #6 When first starting an essay out, I first decide what exactly the point is that I want to get across.

My first rough draft is essentially a brainstorm but with more thought. I like to put all my ideas down on my first rough draft because when I get it back after it has been proof read by either one of my peers or my teachers, I like to see as much criticism as possible so my paper can benefit from it. The more criticism there is on a draft, the better because people are instilling new ideas and beneficial knowledge to your paper that can help it become that much better.

When I receive this draft back, I know it is time for me to make my final corrections and am confident in doing so because I have received so much feedback on my paper so far. My final draft has covered all areas that were criticized by proof readers, and also any more corrections that I feel will polish my paper into “perfection.” I am a big fan of drafting and hope that we continue that trend this semester in English 102....
