Shelby L. Smith 9-27-10 Professor Kennedy EH 102 Take Some Time, Get It Right Writing this paper was definitely an eye opener for me. This is the first time that I have ever written a paper at the University level and I must say that I enjoyed it immensely. However, looking back at this assignment there are several things that I wish I would have done differently including developing the thesis better and also spending more time on the paper as a whole. When developing my essay I began as I would have began any high school paper, write a quick thesis and then develop my entire essay around that thesis. With this paper however, I quickly realized that this was not the way to go. Over the course of a week, I rewrote my thesis at least five times trying to find exactly what I wanted to say. Every time I rewrote my thesis, even if it was just by a little bit, I would have to revise at least half of my paper in some way so the paper would fit as perfectly together as possible.

Unformatted text preview: About half way through my revision process, I began to see that if I would have spent more time developing my thesis in the beginning, then my paper would have come along a lot smoother. Other than developing my thesis more thoroughly, I regret not spending more time on my paper as a whole. I do realize that there were some events that were out of my control, but I should have still made more time for this paper the weekend before. I was extremely upset with myself for not having a draft ready by the early review date, and I now see how helpful that review truly could have been. This is why I am already starting on my next paper so that I have plenty of time to revise and refinish. Overall, I really did enjoy writing this paper. This was a learning experience for me as a whole, and I really hope to not make some of the same stupid mistakes next time. This just goes to show that revision, although only 10% of time, truly is 90% of importance....
