Where my first “Eye” essay was very easy to come up with, I’m really stuck on my second “Eye” essay. My original idea was to look at the story of Little Red Riding Hood, but I couldn’t think of a way to relate to it so I tried to brainstorm other ideas and got really stuck.
Then I talked with my dad, because I knew that my dad would be able to help jog some ideas. He suggested I do an essay on our family Christmas parties, which would be interesting to do. My only issue with that is that I don’t know how to make it an “Eye” essay. I just feel like it would turn out to be an “I” essay.
Finally, I talk to Joe who suggested I do something on my mom. I was hesitant on doing it because I wasn’t sure how I would go about it. He said I should do it on funerals and connect it. While I think that’s also an interesting idea, I’m not sure how to go about it.
The only other idea I had was doing something on Wizard Rock, but at the same time I didn’t want to do it since my last essay was on Muggle Quidditch. I’d like to shake it up a bit.
And no lie about five seconds ago I think I came up with what I want to write on. It was partially inspired by Dr. Chandler and by my roommate. In our conference, Dr. Chandler said (I think jokingly) that I should write a paper on how everyone wants me to write a paper on something else. Then I was talking to my roommate about how I was really stuck and she said something and both comments brought this idea to my mind: writing an essay about writing an essay.
Think about it. There are several ways that people try to write essays and trust me I’ve tried them all. I think this will be an interesting one to work on.
Over and out.
