    I used 2 techniques for the first text. Enjambment to show the excitedness of the narrator and sensory imagery of the "taste of the mango and squeeze of the cheek" for the delight of experiencing it for the first time

    The poem wasn't bad but the fact I used it for the 6 marker made it sound bs... "the unexpected taste of the mangoes" hahaha

    Re: English Paper 1 - Thoughts

    I did texts 2 and 3, how the unexpected nature of reading literature can enlighten individuals and like how future civilisations can find meaning in the landscape of the third text. I wrote rly fast and finished section 1 and 3 in an hour so I had an hour for my creative. Esp since it's my weakest, felt rly good.

    Oh hey I used it for the 6-marker too... mainly because I hated the one about the bookshop. But yeah I said some bs about how the establishment of a child narrator/persona and emphasis on the meaningfulness of friendship (yeah the boys) positions the audience to perceive the discovery of all the
    other stuff (taste of mangoes, birthday) as new and therefore immediately meaningful.

    I thought it was pretty solid, ended up making a 2 page response, with stuff about the soccer field and spiritual imagery and all that. Honestly I thought that was an easy Section 1 compared to like, 2016.

    Oh haha I said the unexpected taste of the mangoes through enjambment and the audience's unexpected discovery that it is his birthday tomorrow through the sudden pathetic fallacy of "clouds break". Text 3 was even more bs so overall I put in 8 techniques for the 6 marker cause I was writing bs so had to add more to cover it up haha

    Could've chucked in personification -> squeezed the cheek.

    Your welcome
    You're* rip english

    In the end, Paper 1 wasn't that bad for me.
    Wrote 7 pages for the creative and 6 for the essay, but got caught out in the short answer and only wrote 4 (finished all the questions though).
