  1. Hey Phoenix,

    You are examining the individual effects well, and with some detail – what is missing is an explanation of the over-all argument you’re putting forward. You might benefit from thinking that you’re writing this for someone who knows none of this information and you’re trying to convince them of your main argument (at this stage I don’t know what your main argument is).

    Let me know if you’d like help defining your argument.
