Read Anne Lamotts, Shitty First Drafts and George Dilas Rethinking the Shitty First Draft. In essay form, summarize both authors arguments and supporting points. Identify and include a brief discussion of the rhetorical devices they utilize in the supporting points (e.g. personal anecdote, metaphor, and/or ethos pathos logos). You may have to do a little research on rhetorical devices. In other words, how do these rhetorical devices strengthen the argument? Thesis question (this question should form the basis of your thesis): Which argument do you find more convincing, why? (The body paragraphs explain why to find one more convincing than the other). Note that the thesis question does not ask which style of writing you prefer. Your essay should include a brief introduction with a clear thesis statement that states which argument is more convincing, move on to summaries, explain why you believe one article is more convincing than the other is, and provide a conclusion. You may use the first person and personal anecdotes. The assignment should be 1-1 ½ pages
