The largest change for me as a writer, between the Visual Essay and the Food Prep Essay, was not including every little unnecessary detail.  In the visual essay, I found myself writing way too much and being concerned with tiny details that a reader could probably infer if they were educated at all.  I think with the Food Prep Essay, I sounded more professional because I expected more of my readers.  Because of this I also found that I didn’t repeat myself quite as much.
