Over the past week I have been trying to create a humorous and thought provoking story called a Writers Craft. At the beginning of this process I was very sure of what I wanted to write. I was sure that everyone would understand, and even feel as though they were part of the story. I was sure that it was an original idea, and I was sure that ms.Leavitt would be impressed. I went through many frustrations going through this project though. If everything was the way I wanted it, I would have a greater rage of vocabulary, and be able to show everyone a better understanding of my work. When the due came closer I because more anxious. Knowing that I should do more and be better weighed on my mind. When I had to present my work I was disappointed in it, and became nervous when talking. After presenting, I told myself I did a horrible job, because I did. I didn't work as hard as I should have during this project, and it reflected poorly on my work.

I really am not understanding most of the literary terms. I'm getting confused easily. I do not believe that I have made any progress because everything is confusing. I still want to work on adding detail but I have realized that I hate detail, because it seems irrelevant when you are looking at the big picture. It angers me when people say detail is the most important part of the story because it really isn't. I don't care if the stool was old, and it has a cob-web on it. All I care about is that there is a stool. I still want to learn literary terms but they all seem confusing and again irrelevant; because it doesn't help the story if I put in two or more prepositions because I bet I will write the same story even if I knew all the literary terms.
