Why not visit Pakistan? Commentary on my writing.

Extracts from this document...


My travel journal targets prospective travellers to Pakistan or the secondary audience is people who are generally fascinated in travelling. The primary purpose of my travel journal is to inform the audience about the issues in Pakistan. In addition, the secondary purpose is to entertain the audience. Firstly, I have used an engaging exclamatory opening "Problematic Pakistan!" In addition, it is also alliterative. I modified this in my drafting process from a question as I wanted to introduce my point straightaway. Furthermore, like my style model I have employed 1st person pronoun narrative.

I have added the simple sentences from my drafting process "I waited. Waited." to connote a sense of tension and eeriness. I have used complex sentences such as: " I sympathized with his impoverished state and paid him a chunky commission of 25 rupees (30p) which he graciously accepted, expressing his gratitude at my deed by offering countless "Mehrbani's" and excessive prayers".
