My freshman year continued with much confusion. The only reading that I was doing then was just reading Fanfiction, but those stories are just written by kids like me, with the same english skills as me. I found it extremely entertaining, but nothing about it was making me a better reader. I just needed to read more books that would challenge me. Reading is not my favorite activity.
We aren’t taught to just begin a task without an exact goal in mind. But this method can sometimes lead to the discovery of an even greater reward. In today’s society, we as writers are trained from an early age to reach a set objective by any means necessary. But when looking back on this concept, aren’t we missing the whole point of completing the assignment in the first place? In this paper, I will adopt this notion of starting a piece of writing without a specific end result in mind, in the hopes of discovering myself as a writer and developing a powerful paper in the process.
AP Language and Composition in my ears sounds terrifying knowing that English is not a strong subject of mine. I have never been one to enjoy reading, but I always thought I was a satisfactory writer because I was receiving A’s and positive feedback. This made it a no brainer to take Honors English 10. It went well for a while, but then I was hit with my first D, and I did not understand why. I was angry and upset.
Towards becoming a writer -------------------------------- I promised myself that I will learn a new skill this year. I resolve to learn how to write with purpose. My mission is to figure out how to express myself with conviction. I refuse to write limp sentences but instead I will write sentences that pack a punch. I find other people’s writing impressive.

My freshman year I had no clue what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised to have a swell time with all my fellow classmates. Not only did I like my classmates, my 9th grade Honors English teacher Mrs. Lightner made my freshman year a blast. She had a teaching style that seemed to click for me and I couldn’t have asked for anything else more, because for me a teacher who has a teaching style that makes sense that’s a blessing. As for my following year in 10th grade Honors English, my teacher Ms. Howey was introducing me to a whole new style of literature. The new style was, understanding the finer details that I would usually gloss over when I read.
I began English 101 as a mediocre writer, I am leaving English 101 with a few more skills, the potential, desire and most importantly the resources to become a great one. One of my biggest challenges was always grammar; still is, in fact. I remember in elementary school, being taught commas were when a person took a breath or break in sentences. So I always wrote paper how I spoke aloud and added commas when I felt I
Stories usually have hidden meaning put there by the author to entertain the thoughts of those patient enough to dig deeper into the hidden message. Messages in stories are expressed in various ways. An example is O. Henry’s story The Gift of the Magi. O.Henry, in his story, uses a few themes to describe the story and the characters. He does this to get the reader engaged in the story and want to read more.
Growing up over the years I have thought of writing to be a very limited field. Limiting writing to only published books, magazines and writing my essays for school, but over the course of the last couple weeks I have learned otherwise. Having read the texts that were assigned in class and discussed them as a group, has really allowed me to see that there are more parts to writing than the actual task of writing and allowed me to form my own ideas of good writing. Although some people believe that grammar and spelling makes good writing, in actuality good writing is created through understanding the context, connecting with the audience and realizing the genre you are writing in. The first of many parts of good writing is being able to understand
Characteristics are their moral and mental qualities as well as their set of beliefs. There are certain characteristics a writer must have that will better prepare them for the occupation. Some of them are the ability to take criticism and rejection, the ability to work alone and unsupervised, great research skills, as well as a love for reading. A writer must have some of these characteristics to help them be a successful writer. The ability to take criticism and rejection is important because a writer may constantly be rejected multiple times by publishers.
Joining the Honors College does not prove that I am the best student; rather, it is a way for me to share, participate, learn, and grow. English is my second language, in order to be fluent in English I have learned how to interact with other people, how to do complete tasks with enthusiasm, and perseverance. Effective teamwork and organizational skill are also developed. Mathematic proficiency, and creativity are skills that help me be confident to learn the materials quickly and efficiently. Responsibility, self-discipline, time management, multi-tasking, and patience are what I learned after completing my freshman year at Georgia State.
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.
