I have often said that I can write research papers in my sleep, but I can’t write a short story to save my life. I use similar skillsets when writing research papers and short stories: both require me to organize my thoughts in a logical and engaging way; both require me to focus on a narrow topic or theme; and both require that I use what I call an “economy of words,” meaning that each word I write must count. But I also use different skillsets when writing short stories and research papers. When I write short stories, I must worry about character development, narration, figurative language, and plot structure—all things that perplex me. When I write research papers, on the other hand, I worry about thesis statements, topic sentences, source citations, quotations, paraphrasing, summary, and analysis—all things that come easily to me. Perhaps the biggest difference between writing short stories and research papers, though, is the level of emotional investment needed in each. When I write a short story, I become wrapped up in the characters and the plot. Even when I’m not writing, it’s all I think about. And then when it comes time to let someone read my story, I worry they won’t like it—or worse, that they’ll “read” too much into it and think that the protagonist is based on me, that the antagonist is based on them, or that the story is based on my life. When I write a research paper, though, I don’t worry about this. Since it is nonfiction, I don’t have to worry about anyone reading too much into it. And if they say they hate it, it really doesn’t bother me. I don’t see my research papers as a reflection of me. Since I’m more comfortable with the types of skillsets needed and the relatively low level of emotional commitment involved in writing research papers, I will likely always prefer writing them over short stories.

Although media producers would avoid admitting to portraying women in such a way, Katha Pollitt in the “Smurfette Principle” clearly agrees and states; “I came across not a single network cartoon or puppet show starring a female” (545). Through the examples of various children’s television shows, Pollitt argues that women are minor to men and that even children are catching onto the media’s feminist ways. Pollitt then discusses what she calls the “smurfette principle” which is when a certain male character
problems in one of two areas: either not being informative enough or being way over the top. It is an extremely difficult balance to strike. This is where writing skills come into play very sharply. 3. Exemplification: Is demonstration by use of examples. We are all familiar with the practice of exemplification…(to be continued, awaiting Prof response!) 4. Confutation: is something we do but do not practice often enough. It is the recognition that someone might have something to say against your case.
