Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
What author or authors are you interested in exploring in your research paper? Do you know anything about these authors? A good first step would be to read the Wikipedia article on the author or authors you are thinking about, just to get a sense of the kinds of things you might talk about.
You could also write about themes that you are interested in exploring, and your classmates and I can help you brainstorm authors that you might be interested in.
Do you think you will write a textual analysis or a contextual analysis for this paper? (Your paper will likely include both elements, but will lean more heavily in one direction). Why are you leaning in this direction?
