The main unlikable feature in writing is if it fails. Writers don’t like it if a story or a novel doesn’t work at all. At some point in the writing everyone faces the problems after getting the response from the readers. We write to communicate with others, arouse interest or action from the reader. We also use writing to help to reflect on personal experiences and learn from them.
-says Nigel Watts in his book Teach Yourself Writing a Novel about the block that many of us comes across while we try to come up with something creative. It is entirely different from simply conveying information and is more inclined to the expression of thoughts, feelings and emotions. Many people find writing help give a vent to their innermost feelings, which they are otherwise forced to keep bottled up within themselves. It can also be a way of creative expression as expressing creativity may be a way that helps to foster meaning in our lives. Writing often helps to flush from the deep thickets of the self some thought, feeling, comprehension, question, music, the writer didn’t know was in him, or in the world.
My Writing Experience In previous courses, my writing skills have been mediocre or just enough to pass the class. Throughout the duration of this course, I have written a variety of papers using different techniques and skills. Previously I would write assuming that the only audience would be my instructor. This course has helped me realize that there are many steps and skills involved with writing a well-organized and easy to comprehend essay. My expectations coming into the course were high and remained high throughout the duration of the course.
Cynthia Linville states how “poorly written letters wouldn 't get an interview” (National 10 qtd. In Linville,1). How are you supposed to land an interview when your application gets thrown out because of all the grammar and spelling errors. Writing is important just to get a foot in the door of a workplace. Then, if I do get the job, there will be emailing and paperwork displaying my writing skills.
Keomany Luangsongkham Professor Brownell ENGWR 50 22 January 2018 Summary of Anne Lamott’s “Shitty First Drafts” In “Shitty First Drafts” Anne Lamott talks about how a writer's life is not as wonderful as it seems when they write their stories. The first draft you write will always be bad ideas because it is being put together without caring if it makes sense or not. Writing is not as easy as it seems even for good writers who have written books before or have been writing for a long time because it takes time to form a story or even write a sentence as well as perfect it. Even a motivated writer who motivates themselves to write will not help. Writers who have written for a long time and who are good at writing and the spoken language
You can write your personal thoughts on a paper for school that they have assigned to you. Although, most of the papers you have to write are not related to your personal thoughts and you cant write your opinions. Schoolwork and personal writing is also similar because you are writing in general. The topic they give you to write on, or the diary you are writing in, you are still writing otherwise. In my opinion, I don’t think personal writing and writing for school share many similarities.
Moreover, for the students writing is such boring and tiring activities. The students have low motivation on writing English, but they must be able to find out the way to writing text easier and fun. Brown (2004)
Attending this course made me realized I prefer writing articles than writing academic essays. I discovered my weaknesses that although I am good at writing, I often use too complex sentences by adding too many clauses, thus confusing readers. I lack knowledge on academic words, leading to improper use of vocabulary, and grammatical mistakes. My essay structure was very poor, as I failed to develop a coherent thesis, body, and conclusion. However, this course has also helped me to realize my strength as a writer.

The basic hypothesis for this research is that since writing is often neglected among the four basic skills it is presumed that normally, students would find it hard and confusing to study and to do because of the many rules and concepts they have to remember. There are many factors that may affect a student’s proficiency in writing. Some factors may be from the student itself and some from the influence of other people or the environment. If these factors can be identified then it will be easier for both students and teachers to solve the problems of writing. But the factors affecting writing proficiency is difficult but possible to determine because different students mean different factors that affect their writing proficiency.
