Thus far, my drafting experience has been exciting (surprisingly). I find my topic so interesting and somewhat fluid across several different genres that researching has really become an adventure–a liberating, awe-inspiring adventure.
My successes in the process up until now have been, finding a model for how I envision at least ONE aspect of my final project, understanding what I plan to address, and most importantly discovering a voice in my writing very much alike the voice in the original piece that I am taking my inspiration from. (Listening to the YouTube video of the original piece that is inspiring below will give you an idea of the “voice” you will be receiving from my piece):
Although I have been (almost completely) enjoying my drafting process, I have a large problem . First, I am having problems figuring out how to incorporate both sides of my argument in a way that makes sense and “fits” with my project. Need some context on WHAT my project is? Well, I am performing a spoken word, similar to the topic in the video above, except I will take a different angle and argue that the revolution is being televised through social media in this Ferguson “era.”
What “opposing view” should I be taking with a topic and genre such as the one that I envision? And HOW am I supposed to incorporate the opposing view? If this were a paper, or a blog post, it would be simple. But, I have no idea how I am going to accomplish these two tasks.
What do you think?
