Problems in an essay As I was writing my literacy narrative, I encountered three main problems. The first problem I encountered was properly using grammar and punctuation. Another problem I had was identifying the correct way to use a comma, as well as, making sure I did not have comma splices in my writing. I also had difficulty staying with one story line.
When I study for my tests, I mainly read over flashcards, notes, look in the textbook for reference, and write things that I need to memorize over and over again. Even though I do this, I fail to focus and do it enough times where I can ace my tests. By extending my
After reading this novel, other readers would agree Janie knows who she is individually as she in multiple situations makes decisions that benefit her. She should not be read as a character who has no self-awareness. In addition, Nanny created a protected layout for Janie, which increased her unrealistic ideas on the world surrounding her. Although Hurston created a character who is put in not the best position, by being placed there by someone who is not her, so leading her to having to use her knowledge of who she is to overcome the struggles of life, Hurston creates a story everyone can relate to and learn from, no matter where they come
The choices made at the end of each story were made due to characters pride getting the best of them and can be predicted to harm them in the future. After walking away from Miss Moore, Sylvia thinks about the day and claims “ain’t nobody gonna beat me at nuthin” (Bambara 6). Throughout the story, Sylvia has pessimistic thoughts that may affect her future. By not admitting she learned something, it can be inferred that her pride will not allow her to acknowledge the lesson. Due to this, Sylvia may suffer a fall in her life, such as the quotation, “pride comes before Destruction” suggests.
Maybe by trying to show her that might help her understand that Dan might not be the best person for her. One of the most important things would be keeping a friendship with Hailley and make sure she knows she has someone to talk to, this could have a good impact on her knowing no matter what she will not be alone.
John Steinbeck was an old school soul who enjoyed personally talking face to face, how does he feel about all these new advances in technology? Steinbeck has been seen to write about how he wishes that he could be like the news reporters who just go up and talk to people. What he never realized is that he already had that personality and can fester up a conversation with anyone. Modern conveniences have extremely decreased face to face interactions in the modern age though it was bad during Steinbeck’s time, it is worse now. Steinbeck saw that convenience was for better but social isolations were a change for the worse.
1.) Creating dialogue that will help introduce a conflict for why the character Lauren is maybe missing was a suggestion I found intriguing and would allow me to create a little more background information. Simple dialogue such as, “Please don’t hurt my parents!” and a description of her being taken away will start the story. Want readers to quickly learn someone is being taken against their own, also keeping the abductees incognito.
At first it may be difficult to understand, but in the end the knowledge will help with finding a job and doing better in school. So the next time you’re choosing your classes, try a foreign language
My process is a far cry from normal. While writing essays, I get as much information down on paper then organize the information into paragraphs. Once that is done, I tend to write the story over in a few different forms then keep my favorite one. Although this process may sound strange, it works for me especially when I am in my writing environment. Adjusting my writing environment would be quite troublesome due to the fact that I dislike writing in front of people or in busy, crowded places because I am easily distracted.
It is difficult for me to think of what I want to say and how I want to say it so it’s not a jumbled mess. I have so many ideas it’s hard to organize them so everything flows smoothly. It is also hard for me to write the required amount. A lot of times when I’m finished writing something, I have to go back through and add more to make it longer. Adding lots of detail to my writing is something that I can work on.
During school, I was taught the basic information with writing such as starting with an introduction, moving onto the body paragraphs, and finishing off with a conclusion. However, in general, writing is not particularly my strongest subject. My high school experience with writing was good at times because my class and I wrote a whole lot of essays, and I got more familiar with the different formats and styles. While spending my next four years at Florida A&M University I desire to obtain more information and spend more time writing so I will be able to get better.
