Rather, explain and analyze how the theme is demonstrated in your story. Special Hint about Plot: Be aware that a paper about a piece of literature is NOT a plot summary. Your plot summary, if you must have one, should provide only details necessary to identify parts of the story required to develop the paper, no longer than three to four sentences. Reflection on your Writing Process: Following the Work Cited list of the paper, provide two or three paragraphs explaining what you are learning about the writing process. Also note two features that you would like feedback on, such as the thesis statement and topic sentences.
