Lens choice

Clairity's picture

  In my last essay, I tried to expand my structure from a quote from NW "people generally get what they deserve", which associates with "social mobility". I questioned whether people can really get what they deserve, and whether social mobility is feasible. But then my essay started to go into different directions. I talked about how Natalie/Keisha looks at herself differently than others and London's history, which is a little weak.

  For this week's re-writing, I'll sharpen my lens. I want to focus on whether people get what they deserve, and its connections with social mobility. I'll re-write my essay by limiting the topics I want to discuss and expand it through this specific lens.
