Authors Experiences in Creative Writing Styles Many authors will write a piece of themselves into the stories they create. We see evidence of this through Jeanette Winterson’s novel Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit. This novel combines both the writing styles of an autobiography as well as fictional writing. Throughout Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit we are able to analyze aspects of the story to uncover the truths of her life as well as the fictional aspects. Jeanette writes with what she describes as “Authenticity … a genuineness there that comes from you that is passed out” (Vintage Books).

Also throughout the book Ozment presents several morals that are not normally viewed when looking at historical records. Ozment does a great job of creating a narrative about a woman's struggle against social prejudice and the justice system because of the way he sets up the story. At the beginning of the story he introduces the reader to the main character, Anna, and makes the reader have a strong understanding about her childhood. Throughout the narrative Ozment does a great job of demonstrating

To begin with, Margaret Atwood is a great contributor. This, her writing, are a few of the factors that on why she inspires young writers. One of the forms her writing was inspiration is the quotes.

Welty uses colloquial language in this essay to convey the value and intensity of these particular experiences. This essay is written in the view point of a young Eudora Welty, as she is beginning to explore language and literature. These experiences can be valued by the language used because in line 21, Welty uses improper language by writing "she wished me to have." This adds significant value to the essay overall since it demonstrates that it's intention is not to come off as pretentious. It is written in colloquial language so the ideas expressed can be easily grasped.
I believe that “I Stand Here Writing” by Nancy Summers constitutes as a literary narrative. The strongest evidence is Summers’s use of personal stories which are scattered throughout the text. She includes a couple stories about her schooling, life as a mother, and her career as a teacher. In fact, Summers uses these narratives to convey a deeper message about the skill of writing. The best example of this is when Summers expresses how she came to love the writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson and how she used Emerson’s ideas to set the tone for the rest of the passage.
The author uses ethos in the beginning of her book to set up the whole novel. She shows her credibility to invite readers to believe what she tells them is the truth. The use of emotional stories is very effective towards connecting with audiences. Williams does this to clarify how much these world problems can effect everyday people. The author utilizes logos by extenuating facts over the course of the paper.
The author has a unique writing style that makes the book one of a kind. It was as if Sacagawea herself was telling the story; his writing made the story convincing and set a great tone for the book. I have read a novel similar in nature to this one, called The Secret of Sarah Revere. The author of the novel also sets an amazing tone and made the story believable. However, I feel the author of Streams to the River, River to the Sea does a much better job of keeping me engaged.
So far in AP Language and Composition, we have learned how to critically analyze texts using rhetorical and literary analysis. I feel comfortable with literary analysis because of how frequently and often I have been doing it in the past couple of years. Regarding rhetorical analysis we have learned diverse types of appeals used in rhetoric, appealing to a reader’s emotions using pathos, an ethical appeal using ethos, or appealing to a reader’s logic using logos. These skills and concepts are completely new to me and I am still beginning to understand how to use these appeals in my writing strategically. However, I feel more confident in finding these appeals in other rhetorical texts, including ads and speeches, because of how much practice
I am reading The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. This memoir gives the reader a peek into the major events encompassing in the unusual life of Jeanette Walls. The reason i decided to read this novel was merely because of the raving reviews of the people around me. They said it was a very quick read because i would have trouble setting the book down and they were very true. The main character is the author obviously and we follow her through her struggles growing up that even follow her to some of her adult life until she finally finds her happily ever after.
