Lit Paper Revision - Pft, Whatever!

Perhaps I can find solace as I sit here and STRUGGLE to revise my Lit paper that is due tomorrow. Perhaps if I just vent a bit I will get through this and find the compacity to stomach the acid building in my gut...perhaps I shall get in trouble...perhaps....but at this point of the year, I'm burnt out already.

I'm sorry. I would have to disagree with the grade I was given on my argumentative paper. I got a C-. Come on now! I did the comparison of the print version of Ambrose Bierce's An Occurance at Owl Creek Bridge to the 1962 film version by Robert Enrico. Sorry all you Literature majors, Enrico does it better than Mr. Bierce and he's the man who wrote it. This just pisses me off. I feel that as a student, I did a damn good case in defending why I thought it was better and provided examples that would make me feel that way. I'm sorry to also say that I'm finding it extremely hard to make revisions on this thing. I liked it the way it was and because someone doesn't agree with me I have to get a C- again due to lack of revisions? What am I suppose to do with this thing???


Is how I feel right now!!!!!!!

I can relate. I am too having major difficulty revising this paper. I have been used to writing reflection papers in APA for the last four years in the Art Therapy program; thus, I basically ended up writing a reflection for the first go-around of this lit paper. I usually do not give up easily, but my grade will suffer because of my lack of ability to go on with this revision. Keep your head up, things will get better ;)

There's nothing wrong with a little venting, so of course you aren't in trouble.

Making an appointment with me to talk about your paper, or taking it to the writing center, would both be positive, active responses that can help you learn.

Yes, indeed you are most positively correct.
