Have you ever wondered whether a writer’s voice and the standard rules of academic writing can exist on the same page? According to Dr. Debra Pena, English Professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), and Mathew Teorey, English Professor at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, and the author of "Using Freshman Composition to Analyze What Students Really Know about Grammar", a writer’s voice and the process of academic writing can exist on the same page (Personal Communications February 13, 2017, Teorey 2).

In his 2011 essay “How to Read Like a Writer,” author Mike Bunn provides useful tips and tools for college students, in the hopes that they will be better prepared to tackle the various kinds of essays and writing assignments that will be given to them throughout their college careers. Calling back to 1997 and his time spent as a college graduate working at the Palace Theater in London, Bunn introduces how he stumbled upon the titular technique through an anecdote about his time spent as a Red Coat on West End.

Over the summer holiday, my English class was given the assignment to read one books from the summer reading list that was assigned to us, and then later, we were to write an essay about the book we had chosen.

The three themes that seemed to be present throughout the book were sadness, love and family.
Emma and Elizabeth are special among other heroines as Emma is able to examine her own state of thinking of being in love to the realization she is not, and Elizabeth shows her own introspection in the process of thinking and re-thinking. Another important feature of Austen’s novels is heroine’s learning experience as a centre of the novel. From the studied literature, it follows that the learning experience leads to the problematic of ‘self’ which Austen’s fallible heroines deal throughout the novels. Jane Austen tried to explore mainly the fields of self-realization and self-knowledge, which means Emma and Elizabeth must overcome their mistakes to find what is right and only then they can reach the ‘self’ development. The first part of the thesis also showed the critical view on the heroines.

She chose this genre because she wanted to add allegorical elements to her writing. She chose the Hunger Games arena as the symbol that her readers would witness transform throughout her books. She needed to be able to create it and manipulate it how she wanted it to work out, and although she did incorporate some historical elements into her trilogy, she did not want to write to write a book too strongly reliant on historical occurrences.(3) She also attributes her choice to write science fiction because she feels that telling a story in a futuristic world gave her the freedom to explore things that bother her in contemporary times.(9) Collins acknowledges that her writing is motivated by political and utopian desires.
In my sophomore year of high school, my English teacher assigned the class to a read a novel of our choice and report back what we liked most about it. My choice was Ethan Frome and I read the book repeatedly just so I could connect back to the characters and the setting of the novel.
