This writing assignment seemed more targeted than the first major writing assignment. It was nice to be able to focus on one website for the entirety of the paper.
I started this assignment when it was assigned, took some time off in-between, and then finished it the weekend of November 2nd and 3rd because I mistakenly thought the paper was due November 4th. However, it was extremely nice to be able to have the assignment done and reread the paper during throughout the next week to further editing and revision. Because of having the paper done a week early, my process for final editing was the rereading and revision that took place the week following its completion.
It was nice to have visuals – screenshots and flowcharts – to help the reader understand and see the specific areas that were being discussed about the website. The sitemap also made was a way of making sure that I had looked at all parts of the website.
Looking ahead to the final major writing assignment, I would take several notes on the given topic. The main thing that was better about the second major writing assignment was how much more familiar I was with the website than the documents from the first major writing assignment. From having to include screen shots to having to make a sitemap I really felt as if I knew the website extremely well. For the next major writing assignment, I would just be sure that I am very familiar with what is being discussed.
