the third or fourth class, I have written about these event to the point I feel like I was there. Let me rephrase that, I went to the e-library, looked up someone else research, wrote down a bunch of facts and numbers and pieced together a paper for school. I am not sure I would even call that writing. It is the same blah, blah, blah stuff the other fifteen to twenty student have done before me. The one thing I could add to the essay is my personal experience of that dayand how I felt about those events. However, I stay within the normal guideline of what an essay should be. Like a herdof cattle, following the line ahead of me. I guess my question is once I add my personnel ideas into anessay does it become a “story?” I felt that was what happened in Lynch’s essay. When I stated reading the first pages about the “Cheeseburger poster”, I told myself why does it take fifteen pages for the author to drive home that I need an introduction, body and conclusion? The more I read,it felt he was talking about my unskilled (wanted to say crappy) writing. He talked me into wanting to take his course. I further agree with "Jon" that it seems like more classwork and homework happens during holidays (lucky for us week 5 is the Fourth of July weekend).
