Out of all the major papers we wrote, the major narrative was my favorite. It was very personal to me and I was able to portray words on paper that I had thought about for years. I feel that I accurately described how I felt about my family situation and was able to make my reader feel the same way that I do. This was also the essay that I received my highest grade on. Narratives are my favorite type of writings.
Writing is an enjoyable activity for me due to the fact that it allows for so much individuality and creativity; therefore, it rarely generates anxiety or boredom in my life, rather, it is more of an agreeable pass-time. Although this writing process has worked well for me in the past and has proven to be helpful, I understand the importance of seeking new ways to create a more effective writing process, for learning to be a skillful writer is a lifelong
Even though it can be stressful to have to tell someone that their work isn 't correct, it can still be very beneficial to that person. After the first peer review I became more accepting to the idea of letting someone tell me what was wrong with my paper. I think it’s a great way to get another persons view on your paper. Along with peer reviews are revisions plans and they too can be beneficial because that gives the writer the opportunity to see their mistakes and correct them. On all my assignments I have used these tools and I have also visited the writing center on one of my assignments, which was very helpful.
The difficult tasks in my life can start to consume my happiness and my time. I picked Anchors as another important symbol because there is things I do, that do not have too much productivity to them, but they make me happy. An example of this is my artwork that I like spending my free time on. Thirdly, I chose The Shift as a vital symbol that I can connect with for the reason that I feel like I will have a shift in the future. It may not be big or last for long, but it motivates me to try harder and do
I 'm finally working on a chapter book. Still planning it, feeling inspired, and having fun. Writing has always been a stress reliever for me. To all the writers in this group, I hope you get the same great feeling as I do when working on a book. I support books as people support movies, music, and anything else.
I love this series and I read and reread them whenever I have nothing else to do. Also, you would find my favorite book of all time, Matched by Ally Condie, which is a part of her Matched
The piece in my portfolio that I am most proud of is my Found Poem. I am really proud of my Found Poem because I put a lot of effort towards it. I am also proud of this piece in my portfolio because I really enjoyed writing the poem, and because I had enjoyed it I actually had attention to what I was doing, I was not confused at all by reading the instructions. The skills I used as a writer to create this piece originally were style and thinking skills. I used a lot of thinking skills when I was creating this piece because I had to take the words out of the novel which was an easy task to do but putting them into a poem took a lot of my thinking skills.
Each member of the group would take turns reading. I enjoyed this part of the day to see what new adventures Touching Spirit Bear had in store for me. There never seemed to be a dull page in the entire book. My shyness to read in front of others seemed to disappear while reading this book. This was my favorite part of the day, and as I would find out later, would have a great effect on my

Looking back on it now as a high school senior, I'm almost embarrassed to say that was my first piece of writing, but everyone has to start somewhere. The entire year we filled up our purple notebook with stories that flowed straight from our imagination, and I was having the time of my life.
