Lambert 1(Robert) Curtis LambertEnglish 101Professor Bolton02 August 2012 Text Analysis, “The Persistent Piracy Plethora” Self Evaluation The text analysis essay was the second, and possibly the most important essay, I wrotefor my composition class; English 101. This particular essay was a turning point for me in mybelief that I could actually write a decent paper for a college level course, especially one asdemanding as this summer session had been. Part of the reason the paper was so important nitsbecause the subject, media piracy, is one that I have a good deal of knowledge and informationabout since it concerns me personally, to a degree: I am a member of the combined actorsunions, SAG and AFTRA, and for the past 10 years media piracy, and how to disburse royaltiesand residuals, has been an endless topic; and still is! My goal with this paper was not only to to show my understanding of the subject matter,but to convey the industry lingo and the judicial legalese in a manner that was understandable foranyone who may read the essay. I feel I accomplished what I set out to do, and given more words(I got them for my research paper!), I could have been a little more thorough. My biggeststruggle with my writing continues to be editing. I have no problem with verbiage and strugglesometimes to edit out unnecessary and possibly repetitive information. That being said, I amhappy with the final copy and had little revising to do following grading.
