Two down, three to go!

On Monday I wrote a post about my literary analysis goals for this week. Now it's Wednesday and I have been able to accomplish some of them so I thought I would post an updated “Goals List” at my mid-week mark. 

Goals for the next two days:
  • Complete a close-reading of Fairest by Gail Carson Levine.
  • Look again at the sources I have now and incorporate them into my working paper.
  • Find which sources that I have already complied aren't working for me with my revised thesis, and replace them with new ones.
  • Organize the ordering and structure of my paper in preparation for Friday's half-draft.
  • Complete 4-5 pages of organized, purposeful text to bring to class on Friday.*
It's good for me to post this, even though it embarrasses me a little to display all that I still have left to do. I think that's why it is so good for me to post it. It embarrasses me and thus motivates me to move more quickly through my goals. 

*I added this last goal because I want to bring something to class on Friday that is worth being peer reviewed. I don't want to waste my classmate's time. I want to bring something that they will enjoy reading and be interested in critiquing.

  1. So good to make your process open like this, and you are absolutely right about making the peer review meaningful (for your peer as much as you). Happy drafting!
