The author goes about this in a quirky way to say the least. From overly detailed and heavily sourced paragraphs, to a couple of grammatical errors. Similarly, the loss of tone and occasionally, focus in the article.

But in the eighteenth century it enjoyed an enormous popularity, secretly registered and irremediably ridiculed in Miss Austen’s Northanger Abbey. In Lewis’s hands (as it had done in those of the Germans) it admitted real diablerie and permitted great license of situation and action; in Mrs. Radcliffe’s and in most, through not quite at all, of her minor followers, it was strictly ‘proper’, and employed a curious, ingenious, and at the time highly
He argues that everyone has different writing process that works for them. Although he is too aggressive, and sarcastic in his writing, he clearly introduces his aspects of Lamott’s opinion. Nevertheless, I found his thesis highly biased and contradicting. He points out her generalization of “all good writers” and “shitty drafts”. Her purpose, however, is to correct the “fantasy of uninitiated”, and shows that even experienced writers like herself go through painstaking stages.
Fahrenheit 451 had many different pairs of characters that had many different thoughts about certain things in life. Mildred, Montag 's wife, was very negative and only cared about herself, but Clarisse cared about other people than herself and had a positive view on the outside world.

The two papers I am going to be comparing in these articles are “Is Harry Potter Evil?” and “Why stop at Mark Twain’s ‘Huckleberry Finn’” These two papers though they may have an awful lot of very similar things in each of them respectively, they also have a million and one things differences between them that make them special and different.
