I would write about several different topics instead of focusing on one topic. Lastly, knowing where to place my thesis created a challenge for me. In the past, my thesis would sound good, but I had a difficult time knowing where to properly place it. When I began writing this paper, I knew that grammar was going to be a huge problem for me. Comma splices were one of the major grammar problems that I had struggled with in the past.
It interrupts the storyline and causes the reader to lose track of what they have just read. Not only does it distract from the novel but also it takes a narrative and alters it into a nonfictional work. Adding more information causes the reader to become sidetracked and can cause them to lose interest in the ongoing events throughout the novel. Overall, the use of intercalary chapters affects not only the novel but me in a positive way. They have the power to provide the reader with background information on what they will soon be reading.
PART A: My writing process and the process described by the authors are the same in many ways. Just like the book I carefully read the assignment to make sure I understand what I’m supposed to do. Then I try to come up with a topic that I want to write about. I also like to brainstorm ideas and from there I start writing. The difference between our processes is that I don’t do as many of writing process that they describe like looping, drawing, or clustering.
I think the main problem I had was not believing in the thesis I chose and not picking a better one. Since I left this piece unfinished, there was a lot to be improved on it. There was only an introduction, so I did my best to add the remaining parts of it. This included writing support for my thesis and providing sources to do this. This revision was more difficult than the polished revision since I had to basically write an entire essay from the
Also, I do not feel that I would be a good teacher, so I am also worrying about that option as a future choice. I am not a “people person” with a career mindset for teaching, so this might not be a good idea. In fact, I do not have very many “good ideas” about my future career options as a specialist in literature or English writing. These career options are causing me a lot of worry, since I am currently in great debt. I really need to think about career options to lessen my worries about this aspect of my professional
Writing is one of my many concerning in my PhD program. Every time when it comes to writing I feel nervous and stressed. I actually I used to love writing in my first language and I was good at it. Nevertheless, writing in English is another experience and quite difficult. To be honest I tried to avoid the class at first time, even though we have to do writing in other classes.
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 makes us analyze words in a deeper context that have to do with our argument. As a writer, I think that many of any arguments I make are incomplete. With the quotation journal, you’re supposed to look closer at words while broadening your scope on words so that our analysis is more interesting and can connect to our thesis in an intriguing way. This is how I have expanded as a writer. Before, I would rarely mention anything interesting in my analysis.
My expectations coming into the course were high and remained high throughout the duration of the course. The essays I wrote in the class really challenged me to progress in my writing skills. The illustration essay really served as an example of what not to do when writing at a college level. My approach of the essay was really misunderstood and grammatically incorrect. I did not understand the purpose of the essay so I wrote about what I thought altering public space meant.
I am not a talker, so writing for me is straight to the point and then I’m done. Trying to generate ideas and other things to write about is a challenge for me. It will normally take me a couple of hours to write a good paper, and I’m only taking about a rough draft. The way I generate ideas is to just freestyle it until I have enough words typed or written down that I can so what play with and try to make sense out it. If I think about a subject
