Lamott’s use of common everyday word choice, slight profanity, and added humor allows the reader to feel like Lamott is speaking directly to them instead of reading a boring instruction manual. This style creates an atmosphere that invites the reader in and allows him to engage in what Lamott is saying not just dismiss the article. Throughout the article, I enjoyed the writer’s style. It was as if Lamott was personally telling me this advice instead of reading a dry, boring instruction manual. This method allowed me to pay attention and retain what I was reading.
She states “we all often feel like we are pulling teeth” when it comes to constructing and composing a piece of work (Lamott 468). This simile makes Lamott feel more relatable to the reader because this is a feeling that most inexperienced and discouraged writers go through. Saying things like “feel despair and worry settle on my chest like an x-ray apron” only connects the reader to Lamott even more (Lamott 469). Once the reader becomes engaged and forms a connection with what the writer is saying and feeling, continuing to read the essay is easy. At this point the reader wants to know what can be done to shake the feelings of “despair and worry” when it comes to
Words were present throughout that time in history, and have left an opaque imprint of a scar that will remain for the rest of everyone’s lives, but they have also been the source of kindness and thankfulness that helped some people succeed despite the treachery. In this novel, Liesel is able to use the opposing qualities of words to her advantage and learn the truth of the world. She is initially unable to comprehend the true meaning of words, but at the end of the novel, she fully understands the true significance of words and their impacts. Therefore, the paradox of being ugly and beautiful simultaneously can be applied to Liesel Meminger and her divergent
Just like any other great book there were many things I liked, disliked, and connections I made throughout it. During Zero Day there are many writing techniques I liked. The main technique I liked about the book was the way the author wrote it. Zero Day left you on a cliffhanger on almost every chapter, so you could predict what would happen next. One example of this is at the end of chapter three it leaves you wondering by saying “And with it, the truth.” Another reason I enjoyed reading the book was it was written in third person.
Also she makes the characters do things that I don't a imagine happening with the story but she makes them fit in anyway. I rate this book a 9.5/10 because the author used great character description and good description but I felt like there was something missing in the story but I don't know what it was or how to explain. I felt like the book had everything that a good book need and all the things that I like in the book. All in all the book was a great book, it had great description and I hope that you read it and think the same thoughts as I did. Read Vanished, by Sheela Chari today.
I have now completed the whole novel of, It 's Kind of a Funny Story. This book was eye-opening and it put my perspective on life in a different lighting. My prediction was that by the end of the novel Craig would be able to push through his over-whelming way of thinking, and he would be able to manage his depression. For the most part, my prediction was quite accurate. Not only did the book end on such a positive note, but he also got the girl!
Tolkien—The Mind of a Genius. By Alicia Kort of the Newsweek magazine “a smooth, pale fluent little chap—no harm in him: only needs a smack or so.”.this give a sense of how he was and as I mentioned before one personality and then the things they love can be an impactful thing in one work. All that I have mentioned in this paper, for example, the events and people that inspired and influenced J.R.R Tolkien to write his mind-blowing stories that eventual inspire other as well that's the beauty of it, it's a cycle of inspiration.and it will never end everyone can take inspiration from
Another part of this disappointment was the sheer fragility of the arguments made. Numerous times, I did not relate my arguement back to the thesis which laft it in the dust. I received some wonderful footnotes from you Mrs. Immediato, including: “how does this relate to Romeo and Juliet”, and “Good, but how does this relate to your argument”. The second time around re-writing and editing, i noticed much more that you could have been picky about, thanks for not crushing my self-esteem. My first body paragraph started with a 1st grade level transition.
Through my educational career, I’ve been a successful writer. I received high marks on my papers because I followed the rubrics and was eloquent. I loved complex sentences that strung my thoughts together, used adjectives to detail my stances and showcased research with commas and lists. My writing style was not conducive to public relations writing. This course required me to embrace the opposite of what I was used to and almost relearn how to write for public relations.
I would probably write more at home if I could think of what to write about, it’s really hard for me think of what to write. I really enjoy writing if I get to choose what I’m writing about. Personally, I think the most enjoyable thing about writing is when you get to be creative and use your imagination to create a story. My favorite type of writing is a creative story because you can write about whatever you want. My least favorite type of writing would be a research paper with a topic that
