Like many other writers, I often find myself guilty of including the occasional redundancies in my writing; however, Bauby’s writing has taught me that power exists in brevity. Often the most crucial ideas are the simplest, and as writers, we must learn to slow the stream of our thoughts to achieve such impactful
After receiving the prompt for this essay, I hurried to the books to find textual evidence. Looking back at my decisions now, I believe that I should have spent more time brainstorming the essay so that I would not be stuck in the middle of the essay, not knowing what to write. Because I used up so much time writing my essay, I had little time to edit and revise my essay thoroughly. I was only able to skim through it, leaving numerous amounts of errors in my essay. Additionally, I would say that my essay 's quality is poor because of the lack of analysis, the lack of organization, and the grammatical errors.
One of the biggest challenges I face when writing are distractions. I am not easily distracted when it comes to other things such as sports or work, but when it comes to the least thing that I like to do like writing, I am easily distracted. Also, as I write, I tend o look around while I type and not be fully focused. When I look around, I also begin to see the different things that people are doing. Another challenge that I face while I write is my phone.
What does writing mean to me? Writing means getting people engaged in your piece. It means people wanting to keep reading what you wrote. The biggest thing about writing to me is expressing your thoughts and letting your mind go. Using good word choice and having a strong voice in the writing is something that makes it good.
I picked these paragraphs because it is when the reader is introduced to the dysfunction in Sarah and Edwards relationship. I was very anxious upon reading. I tried my best to have a clear, loud voice and to go slow so I would not rush through and poorly express what I was trying to get across. I found it challenging, however, to determine a tone that I wanted to portray because I was not reading dialogue. I did however try to express an annoyance in my tone when I read the following sentence as I interpreted Sarah being annoyed of Edward, "[i]t wouldn't be so bad if he didn't insist on dragging her into everything" (Atwood, par.7).
Silence, often times preceded by the word awkward, we scramble to find ways around it, usually by listening to music or maybe by the sound of our own voices. Silence is something that drags out the time, makes the clock click a little slower, because we simply do not like it. We want something to fill that absence because we’re simply not used to the vacancy. Everywhere you go there is noise around, some kind of sound. But imagine living in a world without that.
In my mind, I see myself as an adequate writer. I've always love the thought of writing anything, because it lets me create an innovative story using my own experience and imagination. I may not be the best writer but I do believe that my writing style doesn't require too much work. Also, there is the fact that I love to write , which makes it easier on me to complete them as assignments and not as a chore. However ;I'm not going to say that all writing is all fun, it has its moments when it can be very unbearable.
Thinking about my writing in terms of what it lacked and how that affected the result, has made me a more conscious and intentional writer, which improved my writing process. In many ways it is important for me to indulge in the things that come naturally and comfortably such as brainstorming, freewriting, stream of consciousness writing, and skipping around the page. I still utilize stream of consciousness style writing when I first get a prompt. I appreciate the time and space it allows me to get my thoughts down which is a necessary part to productivity. Beginning on those grounds establishes a foundation from which I can grow my writing.
For me at least, writing takes a lot of pre-planning in order to organize an effective paper. Lastly I started to understand my general style of writing and the strengths and weaknesses I have. Overall I came into WRTG 101 with low confidence in my writing ability. Presently I believe I have a better understanding how my strength and weaknesses in writing. This experience has made me more aware of my own writing and given
As a result this granted dose adds realism to the story, it makes it harder to read and follow. A sprucing up and trimming down of the heavy slang and accents. Also all the characters spoke with these heavy accents. One example of the heavy slang came from page 180 “Tell ‘ em ya dong growed sence you los’ your eye.” Equally important the vernaculars can also hinder the reading of the book. Proceeding to look up some of the expressions since they are rarely used in today 's world of phrases and the slang.
I take breaks which add more time to write a paper. My biggest problem is procrastination. I spend so much time thinking about ideas for a paper, and getting distracted that adds on more time writing. Another reason I hate writing papers is thinking about what to discuss while writing. I hate writing because I lose my strain of thought when it comes to writing a paper.
As a "writer" I 've found my writing style to be more of a put together flourish of words and thoughts that in another 's opinion might seem like it never left the drafting stage (besides the few grammatical edits and big words to make it seem like it was written by someone smart). I went through a stage of writing in purely second person, and because of that I lost the ability to respect the need of more emotional descriptiveness. I 've gotten embarrassed to write in that context and end up passing it up for more serious tones that just don 't get my writing anywhere extraordinary. I want to gain confidence in my writing so I can go the places I want to go with it, while also learning to keep it organized and in line with my exact thoughts. My thoughts seem to provide a more well-laid out idea than my actual writing does.
My weaknesses though, now that is a long line. I tend to get off topic sometimes which is really bad when writing stories. Another weakness of mine would be formatting. Certain forms of writing should have a specific type of format. Also feeling like a failure is a weakness, it discourages me sometimes and my writing may get affected.
I tend to look for what I need when reading, which means I skip a lot of important information that later on I have to go back and look for. This also impacts my vocabulary and when writing I tend to get stuck when writing because I can find the words to express myself. For writing I need to take notes and brainstorm. I tend to just write straight the point and when I’m done I would always be short from the minimum word count. By having a plan, which involves taking notes and having a sequence of events on what I will be writing, it help me emphasize on the sections for a longer period and be able to write deeper
