"When I Am Good, I Am Very, Very Good; When I Am Bad, I Am Hard to Live With"
I want to choose Comparison and Contrast on "The Tale of Two Very Different Birthdays"
What should I do first?
i think freewriting about the two different birthdays first.
-16th birthday = very fun and exciting
--got presents from my whole family
--went out to eat dinner with my friends and family
--had a wonderful cake at home
-17th birthday = not very fun
--dull and boring day
--not many presents from my family and friends
--home made small cake
-didn’t go out to eat
is this ok for freewriting?
Now, what should I do next?
So you had a sweet sixteen, then started getting the old maid treatment, huh?
You didn't say anything about who was at the parties? Different folks? If the same folks, did they act differently?
Just exactly (I mean exactly) what does dull and boring mean? Was it just you that was dull and boring? What about the presents? Details. How where they different? Why?
I am suggesting that you get somewhat definitive on the differences.
yes, i will add details in the essay.
