The final text that I created for the Writing Variables Assignment was a poem. The article that I choose to work with was about the mother and toddler that were kicked off the bus. As soon as I heard the title I knew that was the article that I wanted to read. What they heck could they have done to get kicked off a city bus? The writing variables that I changed in the final product were the form, purpose and the audience. Then end result was not too bad, I think. However I have not gotten my mark back yet and I would never consider myself a poet.
I choose to change the form from an article to a poem. That was not my first intuition. At first I thought I was going to change the form to an interview. My second thought was in the form of a comic. The more I though about what I was going to do, I kept summarizing the story in my head and thought hey, maybe I can write a poem. So I did.
The language in my text did not change that drastically. In both texts I would say an easy language was used. I did not try to rhyme my poem but I was trying to make the words play, or maybe compliment each other in effort to make it entertaining.
