Reading this book start to finish made me realize just how countless other great books could be just out of reach. I appreciated that I could seek out books only I wanted to read and not because it was assigned. More times than not we are forced into believing that all the assignments were given in school mark the horrific reading pool available to us. We were not given time in class to read any books of our own choosing. My only opinion was to cram reading in between classes and work, it turned out to be a nightmare.

I do the very minimal when it comes to writing, just enough to meet the requirements. My knowledge about writing has increased this semester and this has helped me. Writing is something that I do not enjoy very much, but it is something that I am working on to show more interest and make it fun. Since, I do not find writing interesting this makes me procrastinate.
In high school, I hated writing essays for my English classes. At first, I did not have a reliable writing process. I would free write a rough draft and turn it in as a final draft. I would also write last minute instead of using the time to create a well-thought essay. I focused more on passing a class rather than boosting my writing skills.
Since I was a child, everything I wrote was done using a free-writing technique. Quite a few of my teachers have told me, and occasionally forced me, to use brainstorming, prewriting, and other systems to help my writing, but I do not believe that I write effectively using those methods. Whenever I brainstorm, I end up just writing complete sentences that would be better off in the essay to begin with.

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.
Personal Literacy Narrative Reading and writing is a tool everybody needs in their lifetime the basic reading and writing skills are used on a daily base no matter what field you plan to study. Reading and writing are taught at a young age. I personally was taught by preschool I noticed on how I grew with my writing and how I became a better reader and writer throughout my life I personal love reading and writing it’s a way for everyone to express themselves through their choice of words.

Not to mention it was the middle of December and my schools heater was broken. My anxiousness for school to be over also probably had something to do with the fact that English is my least favorite subject. I didn’t really dislike English but I was never really good at it. For some reason, where to put a comma just doesn’t stick with me.

She taught me ways of looking for the help I needed to stay focused with writing and the writing process. I took every word and commit very seriously and applied it to future essays. I never let my failures in writing discourage me or give up. I just kept on going and trying to reach my ultimate goal of being a better writer.
