My Relationship with Writing
The relationship I have with writing is that of a love and hate theme. Throughout elementary, middle, and high school, I developed a veiled understanding of what writing would relinquish if only I would take the time to learn to do it correctly. Even though I wrote in a journal as a child, and still do as an adult, there is no rhyme or reason to the writing. There were highs and lows with regards to my attitude about writing during my younger years. As a working adult, I write with a simplistic style about experiences at work and with family, as well as now with school. Currently, I am learning to enjoy writing and to give more of myself to my writing to glean as much as I can from this education.

During my grade school years, I did not take time to study, but now I remind myself of the commitment I made to myself to slow down and learn because I want to be a better employee and go further in my career. In the movie Facing the Giants, I heard the coach tell the football players that a person’s “attitude is like the aroma of their heart” (Kendrick, S., Kendrick, A., Nixon, & Kendrick, S., 2006). Maybe it is because I am more mature now than when I was in high school, but I understand that the attitude with which I proceed will determine much of what I am able to obtain and retain. While writing in my journal, I plan to implement more positive vibes and affirmations. Even though I usually write in a simple style, learning to write correctly is providing an edge in my career as my relationship with writing will have an enormous impact on my future.

Writing has allowed me to find what it is I am truly passionate about. All my life I have wanted to leave a mark in different aspects of society. This varies from environmental issues to everyday sports injuries as a physical therapist and healthy dieting as a dietitian. Writing allows me to show and explain to others that no one has to follow the path of what is considered “normal.” In today’s society there is no end to any situation or idea.
I also enjoyed telling about Mr. Anderson’s easy tests for history, and my oddly eccentric French teacher Mrs. Monacelli. To cope with the everlasting amount of stress and pressure I got, I wrote in my journal every single day of 6th grade. My journal became a source of hope, inspiration, and happiness for me as I went down the road through middle school. My journal was best friend. I never left my home without it.
Ueland reports a holocaust of talent that youth everyday gets their creative energy destroyed. Writing is an emotional battle, sometimes the worst enemy is a friend, maybe a grammar-wiz giving criticism of rule breaking, telling you that you are wrong. The process: you do something creative, you show it to someone you love, hoping they 'll approve, of course, they 'll approve, you worked so hard on it. You get rejected and feel broken. Maybe you feel you don 't have what it takes.
When I think of myself as a writer, I think of a writing struggle. I struggle with getting things done by the deadline, there are times when I feel “on top of the world” this is when I write my best, and there are times when I can’t write at all, I just feel like dying. I went through a lot during Junior year, and it resulted in me being very depressed; which really affected my ability to write. I hate writing when my heart isn’t in it when this happens it leads me to procrastinate, waiting for a spark of motivation but, during Junior year I realized you just have to fake it occasionally and write with only your intelligent mind. My Junior year I decided to take Mr.Davies Dual Enrollment English class, a college level class.
My feelings toward writing aren 't good nor bad. Writing is something i have had difficulty with in my past. I have no problem brainstorming ideas on what topics to write my assignments on, even if i am given a prompt, but I do have difficulty with sitting down and planning my work. I always find myself getting stuck. So I almost never take the time out to plan out my ideas i come up with.
Before taking writing skills two I 've had a positive mindset towards writing because I see it as a way to express my thoughts. For example, whenever I feel a bit melancholy writing a short story or just free writing always makes me feel a bit better. On the other hand, I don’t believe I’m the best writer because like every other student I make mistakes in my writing. Although, I don’t take the editing negatively I always look back at my past essay and try to reflect on them to see how I can always improve my writing skills. Overall, I have a pretty good mindset towards writing even though I have my mistakes I know if I study harder I can become a better writer over time.
Writing process is difficult to realize since it requires a lot of skills and knowledge. Definitely, not many of us can start writhing right away without having any problems such as grammar, vocabulary or organization. However, a person can become a better writer if he or she will practice writing every day and will pay attention to his writing problems. To become a good writer, I have to improve my grammar, follow specific steps in writing process, and avoid using similar transitional words. Grammar is the number one problem in the writing process and causes me a lot of issues.
I never really enjoyed writing but I started coping with it when I entered high school. Before entering high school, it would be rare for me to get an essay in middle school. During my junior year that all changed. I started getting essays from left to right, it felt like a ferris wheel, a never ending cycle. During those times I started realizing what i needed to work on to get better grades.
Writing is an incredibly powerful medium for self expression. It gives me a platform to convey what is on my mind, words that cannot come out of my own mouth, but can be written on paper. As an introvert who observes the world from a distance, there are so many thoughts that swirl in my head that I cannot bear to ever share with anyone. So many, that the only way they can come across perfectly, honestly, is through
My Writing Struggles After taking AP English III, I became better at organizing my papers, but realizing I need to improve my grammar skills and staying focused on my supporting points. All throughout my writing career, I was always thought to be an outstanding writer, especially using vocabulary above my grade range. Naturally, I would see myself as an excellent writer as well until I took Mrs. Bingham’s AP English II course. Mrs. Bingham always gave pointers, tips, and work to improve my class’s writing skills as a whole.
My writing extravaganza began in second grade when my world was changed, thanks to the teachings of Mrs. Clutter. The most distinct memories I hold from that year includes the colorful, giant list of homophones hanging on the wall, and the purple writing journals we kept throughout the year. The fire for writing that I developed in this class continued with me as I traveled to third grade and the rest of my elementary experience, but quickly died out when it came to middle school. Through a random app that I had learned about from my cousin, that fire easily rekindled and I was back to writing by eighth grade. These memories are just a minuscule fragment of the whirlwind of words that is my writing style.
Learning new skills in writing has assisted in so many over ways than just writing for school, it has helped in my career. Writing is such a beneficial trait to hold. I plan to improve day by day. I have so many opportunities available and plan to use to my full
Writing is extremely comforting to me, I even find it therapeutic. As a young writer, I would write short stories on silly ideas like puppies or flowers because I enjoyed that. As I progressed through middle school, I picked up different styles of writing by reading books from various authors. The more styles of writing that I read, the more I wrote. I used to write about fictional characters and subjects.
Writing is a skill that is necessary for life. Writing gives you the ability to express yourself in ways that talking could not. From a young age, I loved to write. Writing acted as a scapegoat to me. It allowed me to vanish from reality.
