This I Believe--draft

Now that you have completed your first draft...

Please focus on two things:

  • Word count-Should be listed at the bottom of your text.  It can be no longer than 650 words.  I’m not worried if it’s longer than that—yet.  You need to begin evaluating your writing.  What is most important?  What is secondarily important?  Is the lesson highlighted?  Where is the extra stuff that can be cut or streamlined?
  • Do you have a metaphor?  If you didn’t consider one, is there a way for you to take your vehicle and give it a metaphorical slant?

The celebration is around the corner on Wednesday, May 31st!!!  Final This I Believe essays need to be uploaded by Friday, June 2nd!
