Also when I don’t feel the need to go back and add more words or details because I already had. That is how I know when I have written my best. I am taking this class because I need an English credit, but I am not just taking it because of that. I want to further my writing skills and feel more confident when I write. Also I want to be prepared for the more
With my current drafting process, I write my entire essay, read what I have written and add a little bit more if something comes to mind. I came into English, with very poor writing techniques. One of the reasons that probably caused me to not get full grades on essays in school is because my first draft is what I would submit, rather than reviewing and editing it to improve it. Something I take great pride in is my grammar and spelling. Although I sometimes
English Composition 101 has been a fun class that helped me build my confidence as a writer. It was my first college class, and I am glad that I decided to take the course. It was a great experience, and the class will help me immensely in my future writing. When I started the class I had zero experience writing papers. My school had never taught me how to write papers and had never required me to write one, so I was very nervous when I started the class.
When it comes to improving these skills, I believe that the only way to do that is to practice and work on incorporating those skills into each essay. I will not become comfortable with those skills unless I force myself to use them. I also found myself struggling to meet the word count requirement, I would easily be able to write a good portion of my essay, but I struggled to stretch and add to my ideas to reach the length requirement. In order to improve this, I need to further develop and elaborate on my ideas in each essay. Prior to AP Language I really enjoyed writing, but during that class my love and ease of writing went away and I often found it to be dull and like a chore.
Through Dual Enrollment English, I have learned how to write a well thought out paper while managing my busy schedule and have learned many lessons along the way. Dual Enrollment English 111 began with a pretest and it crushed me. The letter grade is not what crushed me but the weaknesses of my writing that it exposed to me. I was not aware of how unprepared I had been in being able write top-notch papers within a time limit. I decided it would be my goal to practice and excel at writing papers with efficiency.
It took me a couple of weeks to get it the way I wanted it, but did so. I’m don’t really enjoy writing, but at this time period of my life, it is required of me to do so. My personal process of writing may be different than other people writing process. I start off by writing a rough
I never owned a laptop throughout highschool, so I always took notes on paper anyhow. My plan was to start typing notes in college, after LSC 101, I have decided to continue my practice of taking notes by hand. Remembering the material I learn is the most important thing in most classes. In addition to remembering material, I will learn to think critically in college. Critical thinking is like a muscle, you have to work it out over and over before it gets strong.
Consequently, I received an awful grade on the rough draft of my entrance essay. Because of that, I knew that at the very least I needed to add more to my conclusion than a summary, even if it didn’t bring about a new, colossal idea. This was my first conclusion, and now that I look back, I can recognize that it could be boring to the reader (“Understanding Writing”
What helped me the most with this paper is simply being in class. There was always some short lectures which helped me write the paper better. Those small things from those lectures helped me with the assignment. If I were to say my weakest paper was the first short story analysis paper because it was all over places. No topic sentences was present in paragraphs.
If I was a writing teacher, I would have my students write both fun, creative stories and boring, research papers. I think this would make them more excited about writing but they would also have to learn how to write research papers. I would let them pick their topics of research papers so they don’t have to research topics that they aren’t interested
Many students of all ages have issues with writing, the only way to get better at writing is to have experience. I never paid much attention to my writing skills while in high school, I simply did not care about writing. This year as a freshman in college, I have struggled with writing this semester in GSW 1100. Even though I have not been passing papers, I understand that writing in college is extremely important to learn and develop. This is important because most courses in college have writing in them.
As a "writer" I 've found my writing style to be more of a put together flourish of words and thoughts that in another 's opinion might seem like it never left the drafting stage (besides the few grammatical edits and big words to make it seem like it was written by someone smart). I went through a stage of writing in purely second person, and because of that I lost the ability to respect the need of more emotional descriptiveness. I 've gotten embarrassed to write in that context and end up passing it up for more serious tones that just don 't get my writing anywhere extraordinary. I want to gain confidence in my writing so I can go the places I want to go with it, while also learning to keep it organized and in line with my exact thoughts. My thoughts seem to provide a more well-laid out idea than my actual writing does.
2253751 Into the Reflecting Pool This semester in English class has provided me with more than I had expected. As I am a writer, I was prepared to bull crap my entire way through the semester since writing papers that are worthy of an A is easy. This is what I was prepared for, and this is what I did. This semester helped me master the art of speaking without saying anything, or in this case, writing without saying anything. Other than that, the class has not greatly affected my english.
Ever since I was going to school I was able to learn how to write. Writing seems fun in which it was a way of communicating with words through a paper. Writing in the younger grades seemed like something fun to do. Once I got into the higher grades that didn’t seem like the case as writing needed to be written with more than just three pagers which didn’t seem as much. Starting in Elementary School writing was all all about making up short stories onto paper and with a picture drawing to go with the writing.
