Sharing Some Pictures

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a short writing sample/essay that I was particularly proud of. You can read it here.  I originally wrote the piece in one of my notebooks, and I thought I would share what they looked like written down in the notebook. I really like how the piece looks on paper.

This page is some observations I had after writing the first draft. 

This is the actual first draft. You'll notice some re-writes on the bottom. 

I decided to re-write the piece so that it would look neater. 

The second draft. I love how neat it looks.

I'm very curious how Woolf, Thoreau, Sontag, Emerson, Nin, and Plath would have used Twitter.
