After much wailing and gnashing of teeth, I have a draft for my essay. It's just under 350 words, not much you might think, but when those words are French it takes on a different complexion.
Most of the time was thinking to myself 'How the hell can I put this a different way?'
I won't be putting it into the post for a little while yet, I want to put it in a drawer and then return to it later.
The subject of my essay? La Tour Eiffel
