We had just read On Entering a New Place by Barry Holstun Lopez, which was a writing analogy based on riding a car and a bike through a desert. I used the same abstract way to tell my analogy, with a story to it rather than just saying how two things are similar. The way that the analogy shifts from a marathon to a cliff, yet still keeping both within a single plot line, was one part that I would commend myself for.
However, the assignment then needed to be longer. This is where I ran into trouble. I had said pretty much all I felt I had to say in the rough draft, yet I still needed more content. I noticed that my analogy was semi-chronological, so I decided to try including my early writing experience.
By ignoring the prompt, it sticks out, especially considering it is the start of the essay. The last paragraph was also added to try to take up more room.
The last paragraph however is told as an analogy and loosely related to what I had already written, so it fits better. In other words, I was focused more on getting enough content than on expanding my original ideas. I needed quantity and forgot about quality.
