    Language is a persuasive tool but can also be misleading and confusing. Barriers such as distorting euphemisms, acronyms, lingo, illogicalities, and clichés can distort the meaning of words or phrases (Kirby et al, 1999, pg. 92).

    After I found a glimmer of light when I knew we had to read a John Grisham novel. Upon seeing the dramatic twists and turns of the movies based on his novels excitement arose. Based upon my reading I felt that Grisham used the elements of literature to create an interesting perspective of the choices that can be made in the world of law.

    do what they want. Having the courage to stand alone in one’s beliefs may be one of the hardest thing a person can do. This theme is the driving force behind the two films 12 Angry Men, written by Reginald Rose, and A Time to Kill, written by John Grisham. In 12 Angry Men, courage is represented mostly by Juror 8, who stood alone in a supposed open-and-shut case and defended his ideas with evidence and reason. Similarly, Jake Brigance from A Time to Kill accepted the challenge to defend Carl Lee

    DANIEL & NATASHA COMM. 333 THE KING OF TORTS, JOHN GRISHAM. The police found their man an hour later.

    I am not, by any means, a Shakespeare, Stephen King, or John Grisham. It would take enormous amounts of time, practice, and effort to be considered a long shot at a Pulitzer Prize. Yet, I intend to progress my writing by setting more achievable goals, building on new ideas, and developing new skills. Also, I will use the advice of instructors and peers, and draw from previous writing experiences to mold this and future writing experiences. When I sit down to write, I must do so in a clean, well-organized
