My story explains that although I want to be as successful as my parents, I don 't need to follow exactly in their footsteps. I intend to share this story with incoming freshman to encourage them to choose a major they are passionate about, not one forced upon them by outside influences. From reading my story, I hope the audience learns to not let other people’s actions influence their choices or aspirations in life. After I received very useful feedback from my first draft, I realized that that my biggest flaw in my paper was the holistic impression.
When reading a fiction, not only the plot, but also the narrator and the point of view are important to readers in order to understand the story. Stories can be told in a various angle of vision or in one perspective, depending on which person point of view. “A story is said to be from a character’s point of view, or a character is said to be a focal or focalizing character” (Norton, 174). Readers sometimes feel they are overhearing the narrator’s thoughts because they follow along the narrator’s thoughts, actions, and feelings. Both Sonny’s Blues and the Yellow paper use first person narration.
Bohannan goes on to share an experience in which elders encouraged her to explain the meaning behind the papers she was reading. This was a daunting task since storytelling is very important to the Tiv, but Bohannan does her best to stay composed and present the story of Hamlet in terms that the elders will understand.

In the essay, Directions: Write, Read, Rewrite. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 as Needed, Susan Sontag emphasizes that reading can be used as motivation for writing. Granted she has talked to people that don't feel the same. That the act of reading and the writing must be separate, that it's best to do one or the other.

He explains this through a list of questions using asyndeton that allows the reader to think deeply into the reason a person reads. Patrick Suskind also explains that a person must approach literature with a clear and critical mind. He uses polysyndeton to get the readers attention while listing the important factors a person must keep in mind when effected by the “amnesia in litteris.” In conclusion, if a person were to approach literature with a non clear or critical mind, that person will remember what has been read in a biased fashion. If a person remembers the literature read in this way, this would not allow the person to have an original thought towards that piece of literature or any other piece of literature that relates to the read piece.
Expressive writing is a tool that people can utilize now and for the rest of their lives. It teaches people how to express themselves and understand how they can use their current situation to overcome future stressful situations.

Ishiguro employs Kathy with a narrative style which has a realistic touch to allow the readers to realize her nature, She narrates the novel, So the events are based on her flashbacks and stream of consciousness. she spends time to think carefully about what she says, as if she speaks personally to the reader, she exclaims "I want to talk about such and such but first I 'll have to go back a bit to give you the background and explain why” (Ishiguro 138). according to Ishiguro, he employs Kathy as a mean to not give too much information to his readers in order to keep the element of suspense alive and at the same time foreshadowing an impending death. This style of narration also consists of constantly switching which contributes to Kathy 's disorganized chronological perception of time and its significance.

Many of us may wonder, “Why we are reading primary texts rather than reading about these stories in a textbook or a journal?” A reader cannot get the whole story from just reading the story from a textbook or journal.

In the article written by Hephzibah Anderson, Anderson states that Roald Dahl wrote macabre books for children to remind us that children’s lives are not always full of sunshine. First, she talks about how dark some of these stories tend to be and gives us some opinions about whether or not they help children. Then she gives us some background information on the author 's life, expressing how this may have caused him to write this way.
