Re-purposing proposal in progress sounds like a tongue twister, or just some great alliteration–but seriously, everyone should try this tongue twister challenge, it’s disturbingly hard. Now back to the topic. My re-purposing revisions so far are going great–in my head. I haven’t actually planned them out on paper yet, mostly because I like to congregate all feedback before revising again, and possibly a hint of procrastination. But I have thought about it thoroughly, scouts honor.
I was truly pleased with the feedback I received from my peers–convinced I just have the best blog group (represent). I had included a lot of self-reflective questions and comments, and their feedback really helped to clarify different ideas I had going on in my mind. I’ve ultimately decided to narrow down the amount of tweets I use within the writing, and focus on a few key ones (maybe 5?) I also am seeking out different satirical college twitter accounts to widen my scope, but keep returning to the question on whether I should center my topic around Greek Life–which is what I currently have. Being a member of Greek Life, there are a ton of stereotypes surrounding drinking, date parties, mixers, etc. that are far from accurately describing the community members as a whole. For that reason, I feel like I could also take the second draft in a way that focuses on satirizing stereotypes perpetuated solely against college Greek Life. My brain is still working around that one.
That’s pretty much where I currently stand–attempting the finalize the scope, and narrowing down my examples. I received great feedback on my voice throughout, which was something I was nervous about and relieved to hear it was working. It’s the worst when I think that I’m funny, but no one else does. It’s just plain awkward. Please feel free to incorporate more ideas for my next draft, I’m all ears and love receiving feedback!
