What motivates our characters to undertake a mission? What drove them to do what they did? They all had to have a reason to why they did what they did, but why. That is the question we all ask ourselves why did they do that? What are they thinking? They are so dumb, why did they do that do they even have a head? There are many more but the people all have a motive to why they did what they did.
An author’s purpose is often revealed through the rhetorical strategies that he/she uses throughout their piece. David Sheff uses anecdotes and emotional appeal in order to achieve his purpose: to give a different view on the disease that is addiction. Similarly, Caitlin Alifirenka, Martin Ganda, and Liz Welch use emotional appeal and contrast of perspective in I Will Always Write Back to convey the message that standard of living should not limit a person’s capabilities.
What does it mean to be a writer? Who or what defines a writer? Is it up to the critics, the readers, or the author’s original intentions? For Richard Wright and James Baldwin, their own authorial intentions define their work. Baldwin identified with Wright through his literature as he was growing up. He admired Wright’s work and saw him as a literary idol. When the two authors met in Brooklyn, Baldwin was just twenty-years old, and Wright was thirty-six. As they developed a friendship, they discovered that their ideas and intentions for literature were vastly different from one another. This sparked a feud between the two authors. Richard Wright felt that literature should be powerful and political. His goal as an author was to make his make his readers more conscious and aware of the social climate. For James Baldwin, he felt that literature should be an artistic creation, not used for a political agenda. Although
Do you find that the writer exhibits academic habits of mind (making inquiries, seeking and valuing complexity, seeing writing as a conversation)? If so, quote some text that shows this.
Throughout the course we mainly constructed rhetorical analysis through assigned readings and projects. In the beginning of the course we started by writing a reading analysis of the articles from the textbook, Norton Field Guide. The readings we had to analyze: “The Fashion Industry...” by Hannah Berry, “Our Declaration” by Danielle Allen, “Just One More Game...” by Sam Anderson and “Well Behaved Women” by Laurel T. Ulrich. Professor Lewis assigned demonstrate rhetorical analysis each one of them by summarizing, rhetorical analysis and response. In addition to inspecting the parts where there are ethos, pathos and logos. As well as understanding what was the target audience to whom the author is trying to convey his message, the situation and what areas were the author, most effective in persuading the audience utilizing these three appeals and if not how could he or she been more persuasive to the public.
My history as a writer has been a bit of a struggle of slow development. From a young age I had a hard time with spelling and this is still a trouble area for me, even with the help of autocorrect. As I grew in age and as a writer my problematic area became not including enough nitty gritty details. My bad experiences that I recall would always involve the start of writing because I struggle with beginning paragraphs. Also, I tend to use the ending paragraph to just repeat myself, so overall my first and last paragraphs are usually shit. I find that I usually have more success when writing about something that I truly enjoy and struggle when talking about something I do not really care about. Both my parents were minimal to no help with writing
As mention before, motive is the driving force of our choices and actions. Our choices are fed by our mental needs which govern our behavior. The principle of behavioral motivation explains that no acts is without motivation and that all behavior has underlying causes and origins (Turvey, 2011). Therefore, it is important for an investigator to understand this concept as it would help determine a motive. For example, a son murdered his rich parents to inherit millions of dollars to pay off his gambling debts. He staged a stranger’s home invasion gone wrong to avoid detection and to collect the money. Desperation (cause) was the emotional need which cause the son to murder (action/behavior) his parents to pay of his gambling debt
Nothing happens without reason, not even in fiction. A story needs round characters with motives for their actions. Alternatively the actions of the main character affect the whole plot of the story. Therefore without a good motive the story won’t progress, but with a good motive the story can go surprising places. This makes motive the part of the story that inspires characters to take the story surprising places that the readers and sometimes even other characters don’t expect, as seen in “Lamb to the Slaughter”, “The Scarlet Ibis”, and “The Cask of Amontillado”.

Having my high school at the AP program established under SCNU was always one of my luckiest things happened to me. At here, I was trained to be priorly familiar with the U.S. education system and successful after coming to the U.S. where all the students were supposed to go.

The desire to change and inspire is a part of most people; sometimes it is because of our natural selfishness, and other times it is because we truly care for others and their ideas.

Writing is the ultimate messenger, and it is a skill that some spend their lives perfecting.
