Use Add > Comment to leave an idea here — any idea at all — that you think might go in the essay. You can also leave ideas about how the essay might be organized. The only thing that you shouldn't leave here is possible quotations from or references to works on the syllabus. Those should go on the Quotations and References page. Come back here to leave new ideas as often as you like. Don't worry about how good or well formulated your ideas are. This is just a way to get started! It's probably best to leave relatively short comments here. Don't start drafting the essay yet!
