Enthography Field Notes

Persuasive Texts

For the past seven years, a few of my best friends and I all go to Sandusky, Ohio for five days. However, it has become increasingly difficult to figure out a date that works for everyone. This year, the only date that works is when my Dad is not there. So, I had to persuade my dad to let us stay up there alone. Within this text, I listed reasons why I can be trusted to go through this trip alone. I had to build up my ethos and remind my dad that I have traveled alone across the world as well as out of the country. I realized when writing this text the trip was at stake so I first wrote it in my notes app to make sure it was perfect. After sending this text, my dad was open to having a discussion about the trip, so the text somewhat accomplished its goal.
