Even as a child, my parents had high hopes for my siblings and I. My mother assumed duty as a housewife to teach all her children and care for everyone in the house while my father worked day and night to provide for us. My mother was the first person who taught us how to write, read, speak, and solve problems.. We all had learned to write the alphabets and our names by the time we were 3-4 years old. I loved writing my name as a child because my parents made me feel so proud and confident about the fact I could. I fell in love with reading and at the time period in my life, I enjoyed reading more than writing my own pieces. Eventually I began to admire authors for writing such a masterpiece rather than focusing on just the story. I just remember …show more content…
One piece of writing I can 't seem to forget was a nonfiction piece explaining the life of any animal of your choosing. I wrote about clown fish after watching Finding Nemo for the first time. I couldn 't stop thinking about a really silly fun fact about the genders of clown fish. This was the first time I presented something I wrote to a class and it was well received causing me to be motivated to write more. One thing that made me sad but didn 't hinder me was my piece for my elementary school newspaper. I wrote more than the other kids and tried to use to use "adult" words but in the end embarrassed myself and made me regret writing anything by making a spelling error. My mother loves to save all the moments in my family 's life by collecting everything. I got into the habit of saving all papers that were about me and my life in school even if it seemed insignificant. I have folders filled of my writing as a child and looking back I see how much I …show more content…
By being so open to reading as a child I got into writing my own stories so in the future I could be able to evoke the feelings I felt when I read a captivating and beautifully written book. I want to create a book that will be a positive force in someone 's life. I enjoy the idea that I can thin kike this in this new age of technology where it is so easy to get out there and get feedback. I posted my writing online before and I got all these likes and reviews. Just seeing how people enjoy my writing and ideas and are willing to help me pushed me to write more for my fans. Writing as I grow older is getting harder for me to get into. I love to write and create something living and breathing from my words but nowadays, it seems that all my writing is just for academics. I can 't have fun with my writing anymore. I 'm fine with writing purely academic pieces but it gets so tiring when I see that I 'm not improving no matter how hard I try so I lose hope for those pieces. I want to write free but I need a lot of time to fix everything and I feel like everything is on a time constraint so I feel rushed and strangled by everything. Not only that, but now I have dreams that I can vividly recall and jot down which range from macabre to bittersweet to semi-sweet. My dreams are a great source of inspiration for what I think so when I hear certain words I link them to other pieces of literature and ideas. My early experiences with writing under time constraints and failing to
Upon reading the third chapter, I was able to associate with many of the myths and stories that the author narrated as part of a counseling technique. Few of the myths helped me gain a broader understanding as to why I behave and think in a certain way when things are not right. One of my issues is letting go. While I have got better at it, I found it very hard to let things go.
Growing up, I don’t mean anything like my body grew, but what I mean is that I started to think a bit more mature than I was before. There was one saying that my mother often told me every time I got bad grades at school “It’s okay. You tried your hardest. I know you will try harder next time” (in indonesian language).
Reflective Portfolio Letter Dear, Members of the First Year Writing Assessment Committee, In my past years of writing I have seen myself develop into a well disciplined and patient writer. However, I have seen myself significantly improve and mature as a writer over the past few months more than I have in the past four years. I view writing as an open doorway full of ideas, feelings, and thoughts weaved together simply for creating a masterpiece. Before entering college English 1010, high school students are conditioned to write required papers and assignments without having the ability to “put you’re your own opinions and feelings in a paper.”
Writing is not just about coming up with ideas and jotting them down on paper saying that it is your story because if it is then it is half done, and readers would not want to read what you have to say about how you feel on an experience that you have explored. Writing is about going through experiences and jotting those experiences down on paper and putting them in order so that the reader can understand what experiences you went through to get to the point that you have come to. Writing is a way to write you feel and to make it easy so that you do not have to speak what is on your mind. In my opinion writing can be my favorite thing to do because I like to write but when it comes to me speaking, I get nervous and do not know what to say when I get in front of a crowd. Writing can also be a way to get out of things such as if you want to break up with someone, tell your parents something that is bad that you do not want to tell them in person, talk to a doctor in a message just in case if your friends are
Learning new skills in writing has assisted in so many over ways than just writing for school, it has helped in my career. Writing is such a beneficial trait to hold. I plan to improve day by day. I have so many opportunities available and plan to use to my full
My situation was similar to the story of How Reading Changed My Life, by Anna Quindlen. In the story, the author gave a self-reflection on her passion and progression as a reader. Anna was a disconnected child that was loved reading books. Anna genuinely loved reading books for the sake of doing it and she enjoyed it.
For example, I once wrote a small story on a girl moving in with her were-wolf stepdad. Over the years, I read more and more books which have changed my writing. I developed my own style of writing that I’ve learned to possess and I hope my ideas expand over time. I don’t recall where I got this inspiration to write because no one in my family likes writing.
Writing is a skill that is necessary for life. Writing gives you the ability to express yourself in ways that talking could not. From a young age, I loved to write. Writing acted as a scapegoat to me. It allowed me to vanish from reality.
-------------------------------- I have heard it said putting yourself to task will get you results you can work to improve. While waiting for your muse strike is a poor plan for productivity and growth. Besides being imaginative you should muster your craft. You cannot get by as a writer with good stories but poor craftsmanship.
I want to be an author when I grow up so I can elicit the feelings of readers and imagination like my favorite authors do now. I’m a very competitive person so my goal in life is to have a book publish that is known better than Harry Potter, and all the other books that are well known. I write a lot, it depends on my mood what I write. I have written poetry and stories. I do have a story on wattpad, but I wrote it based off my friends and they don’t know about it, so its not something
We start our lives by molding our minds with the help of scholars along with childhood authors. Our minds grow through interactions and new experiences helping us with the basics. As in the walking, babbling that fills the first two to three years before the real learning begins. I feel our real development becomes prevalent when our eyes scan the pages of our first image filled book. As we slowly grow to learn new words, and have more experiences through the pages, our minds expand.
