Pam and I worked this out together during one of our tutorial sessions together and I was going to work on the essay until Wednesday's lecture and the seminar soon after when the lecture inspired me to change my plan. Now I'm not exactly sure whether or not this previous plan would be a good one to go by. I have a feeling that it's too broad, especially the first paragraph.
What would you suggest?
