Last week I got back the first draft of my feminist paper. Overall the feedback I took away was that I needed more of the short story to support my claims. This is surprising to me because in previous papers I needed less summary, and I thought that I had fixed that with this paper, but apparently no. I guess I need to work on finding the right amount of summary–not too little, not too much. This is a good goal moving forward and something I will continue to work toward reaching that sweet spot.
This week I got back the first draft of my psychoanalytic paper. I was surprised with the feedback I received in that it was not too harsh. I still need to dive deeper into my thesis and supporting details. I am still a surface level writer. What did surprise me, however, was that my paragraph on women and their animus was the most developed while I thought my paragraph on men and their anima was my best one (when the feedback suggested it needed the most work).
The plan now is to crack down on my revisions. A connection between theis developing my ideas even further. Although I am more than halfway done with writing initial drafts for this class, I still have a lot of work to do. In relation to Ed Sheeran’s 2017 song Perfect, I need to “just dive right in” to these revisions. This is what I need to do to get these papers as perfect as they can be.
