This can be a separate paragraph or part of one body paragraph. Describe the process of the author. Think carefully (analyze) about the structure of the process the author undergoes. Does the author present a process that a character endures? Describe this process.
Who narrates the process? Does the author or another character narrate the process? Provide the narration, but briefly. Avoid slipping into plot summary. Are there any contrasts or comparisons that you need to make between this process you are discussing and another process somewhere else in the text? In other words, are there any parallels? Does the process have parts? Who contributes to the process? Who doesn’t?
Answer these questions. Follow up with an explanation of how this process analysis, how you have analyzed the process of the author and the characters, fits within the scheme of what you are discussing. Follow up with an evaluation of the usefulness of this supporting evidence, whether good or bad. Develop a transition statement.
This analysis method serves as a guideline for how to develop the body paragraphs of your paper.
