Since my professor said that my major categories are about monsters as symbols vs monsters are characters, I should group the sources that talk about them that way, with lots of “Critic A said this, while Critic B said that.” On the first draft, I seemed to merely report on what various scholars said. I kind of did the same with the second draft, so at the halfway point, I looked it over and rewrote a lot of it. It isn’t comparative as the professor suggested but the quotes seem support each other and writing the essay is no longer such a chore. When I’m done, I’ll look it over again and reword any confusing sentences. I didn’t the last time and that confused my professors and fellow student reviewers.( More schoolwork talk, among other things )
Anyway, that’s all for now. I can’t wait for this election to be over. It’s revealing some unpleasant sides to people. When I next write, it’ll be two to three weeks away from my end at Quinnipiac and hopefully I’ll have everything prepared to enter the MFA program at Southern.
