So far I can say that my revising process is going somewhat smoothly. I think my main problem right now is making my thesis clear and specific to a point where the reader knows exactly what’s going on in the paper before they enter the body. The hard part about it is making it so that I can word what I’m thinking into a sentence (or sentences) that others can understand. Then, I should be able to revolve the rest of my paper around that so that’s my main focus.
Another problem I’m trying to work around is my analysis. It’s supposed to be a close reading, and I’m trying to make sure that what I’m doing is actually analysis that is really in depth that focuses on and proves my thesis rather than unknowingly summarizing it. In terms of organization and such, I can say that I’m doing well there. It might seem as though it’s not going too well but it’s not as bad as it seems; I’m making progress through it and I think a few second opinions and more time will do me some good.
