Putting in a lot of time and effort just to have someone critique seemed harsh, but it helped me as a writer to realize mistakes in my writing. I tend to choose people wisely, having reliable sources can have a positive effect on my final draft. Editing other people’s essays helps me exercise editing for my paper as well. Practicing editing benefits both the reader and the writer. Understanding my peers strengths and weakness helps me translate what I can do with my writing.
Unfortunately, two of group members were not responsible enough to do their tasks on time. It is obvious that in group work, one having problem can easily affect the goals of a group. As a leader, to deal with this problem, I tried to urge them with a constructive and positive manner. Since we have a lot of assignments together with this group task, I know that if I gave them the negative attitude, I would break the comfortable working environment. Furthermore, if needed, I also helped them complete the work by giving some directions to solve out the tasks and finding information to support them.
I take breaks which add more time to write a paper. My biggest problem is procrastination. I spend so much time thinking about ideas for a paper, and getting distracted that adds on more time writing. Another reason I hate writing papers is thinking about what to discuss while writing. I hate writing because I lose my strain of thought when it comes to writing a paper.
I ended up wasting my time and paying for several institutes for a none valuable gain. On the other hand often I preferred to procrastinate things. In my school time I felt I should have more time to complete assignments, presentations and projects. But unknowingly I came to deadlines with loads of stress in my mind. After learning time management as a topic under Business communication unit, I started searching and developing few time management strategies to manage my
There is an article that helped me learn to truly revise my essays, the title is, “Revision Strategies of Student Writers”, it is by Nancy Sommers. It is about different strategies students can use to revise their paper. She stated in her paper that for many students the idea of revision makes them uncomfortable and can lead to them not spending very much time working on it. She found that the students were never taught how to truly revise their essays (Sommers 380-382). After reading and
As each writing assignments is graded, I realize how much I have improved as a writer by the grade and the fewer mistakes that I have made in them. As each time the grammatical and spelling mistakes are fewer on each paper. I want to share how I have grown as a writer on second semester by being in class and reflecting on my previous assignments. Even though there weren’t many writing assignments this semester. There were some assignments that I have done poorly on.
Although I feel that my speech had a strong structure, I do feel that my slides and I could have done more to make the presentation better. I think that I did not present enough information with slides or press the importance of the ones I did use enough. I also feel that I sped through my presentation too fast and should have tried harder to slow down so that my audience could follow along easier. I also had trouble with remembering what it is I needed to say once I stepped in front of the class, even after many practices rounds with my roommate and study group. This caused me to frequently look at my note cards, taking away from my eye contact and physical gestures.
For example, my last essay involved critical thinking where I chose to apply the same material from a previous essay but had to fashion the ideas in a totally different way. Outside the classroom or virtual cyberspace, my mind has begun to open up and learn new things which have allowed me to see that my processing problem is improving and can be overcome as I continue to learn and develop my writing, reading, and thinking skills. Having examined how I have grown as a writer, reader, and critical thinker, I can observe the writing assignments that I enjoyed and had the most difficulty composing in English

This, coupled with the fact that conversations took considerably longer exacerbated my frustration. When I was able to communicate effectively and my partner correctly identified my statements, there was a sense of accomplishment. However, my communication partner would quickly respond using her speech, which left me with an uneasy feeling. In a conversation with two participants who speak, there is a familiar rhythm within a conversation. During this communication experience, I found that, due to my delayed ability to convey my message, I felt I was significantly holding back my partner, thereby, throwing off the familiar rhythm of a speech conversation which added to my frustration.
