I’ve decided to take advantage of the course’s unique grading structure and consider doing something music related for my essay. More specifically working out a simple tune with lyrics about why I write. I’d make it three separate parts – why I wrote as a little fella, why I currently write, and why I want to write in the future. The challenge of this approach is finding a suitable number of words. There is no way in hell I would hit 800 words so i’ll have to talk to Shelley. Another potential problem is writing lyrics and music that doesn’t sound completely “made to order.” The goal would be to create something that would be listenable without knowing there is an underlying assignment. If I decide this is too ambitious with the time constraints I’ll just write a regular essay.
