What I liked about writing the first essay was that I felt more than prepared to write about my topic based on all the time we spent researching and prewriting. What I liked about writing my first essay was that I was able to choose the topic and argue for my side. A challenge that I ran into while writing was finding a view against my opinion. College tuition is generally an agreed upon subject, most people think it is too high. I found it challenging to find opposing viewpoints and incorporate them into my writing. I also found it difficult to find sources that were focused on ways to reduce college tuition and how the general public should go about doing it. For my next paper I will focus more on outside views that propose solutions for lowering tuition to strengthen my writing.
