    Why is it people consider originality a high level skill? Anyone can be original and write a pile of *****. On the other hand you can look at something someone else has done and write something brilliant (like Steinbeck did with Hemingway).
    Is there something the matter? Have you had a bad day?

    I did 1 1/2 pages for section 1 and 1 page for section 2 (not including spider diagram plan). I think I did OK though, quality is -always- better than quantity.

    The paper surprised me; it was harder than I was expecting it to be. I did question 1 (Blessing & Night of the Scorpion), then did question 6- the informing/explaining about "concerns". I just ranted about feeling unsafe due to "happy slapping" and "gangs of hoodies". Made the whole thing up, but I think it was ok.

    Someone in my class was worried because they wrote about Island Man and didn't make reference to the event, but I think it's fine. They all have events in them, this one his him waking up I suppose.

    The only one I could see a link with was Night of the scorpion because I was thinking the poem entirly based on an event so I guess I probably pigeon holed myself but I still think I did ok.

    no i shouldnt think you will really. if you explained your answer well then the examiner cant really mark it as wrong. Anyway what did you right abotu the comparison?
