One of my strengths is in creativity. I am person who excels greatly when I am able to be creative and have freedom to think outside the box. However, that can also become a weakness because for assignments that are more limited and structured I to find to be challenging. Another strength I have is being able to learn quickly from my previous mistakes. There are times where I mess up or do something wrong, but my plan is to put those failures to good use.
Telling myself that I will get a reward if I get my schoolwork done will help me a lot. Also having discipline will also help in my desire to get stuff done and leave the fun for later when I’m finished with my priorities. It will result in me having better time management skills for the future, better grades, less stress, and more sleep. When writing, I can motivate myself by going to writing workshops or tutoring. Having others help me formulate my ideas and organize them will help me express myself better.
In writing, people may be good at some things and bad at others, it all depends on the person. Personally, I know that my weakness as a writer is grammar mistakes. These mistakes do not include silly mistakes such as knowing when to use their, there, or they’re. But bigger mistakes such as my editing skills, over using commas, knowing where to place commas, and going off on a tangent creating a run-off sentence. These mistakes have become a habit of mine, which I continuously make whenever I am writing papers.
I struggled with grammatical errors once again and missed the goal I was looking for. I liked writing this paper because I was able to put in more information from my articles than I was in the annotated bibliography paper. It seemed easier to put more information into the paper, than to cut out information like in the annotated bibliography paper. I was difficult to decide how I wanted to put the information from the documentary into this essay. The documentary I choose was not a very good source; however, it was the best documentary I had to choose
Even the best or most gifted writers make mistakes, though, before making it look easy. They also have their strengths and weaknesses. Writing takes skills that must be learned over time. For any writer, knowing their strengths and weaknesses is important. While multiple weaknesses can weaken the paper quality.
Whether I now focusing on my strengths or overcoming my weaknesses, the main and most valuable piece overall is I enjoying writing. I love the thought that my words and opinions matter. Moreover, my words and writing may not matter to a huge amount of people or make a difference in the world, but it does make a difference to me. I will continue to grow as a writer; however, I will have struggles and hardships that I will overcome.
My instructor Jennifer Jackson said this time “ Bravo! This is one of the strongest revisions I’ve seen yet.” This essay gave me so much confidence and made me feel I can actually write something interesting. Also, I sent my paper to The Writing Center, after I submitted my paper to my instructor to see any other mistakes I could have to improve my writing skills.
Reading relaxes my mind it and it takes eases my stress. I could read about cars for a couple minutes and then get a feeling of enjoyment from it. Reading is my passion and if I did not know how to read very well, I would not know where I’ll be . Learning about different nouns, adverbs, pronouns, and conjunctions, taught me what to use in certain essays.
Five weeks into my English course, I have gained new strengths and weaknesses I never thought I would have. I want to preserve my writing skills, enhance my writing weaknesses, and become an improved consistent writer. My writing strengths assist me in becoming a better writer. For instance, I have short yet strong introductions.
My writing has a few areas of improvement but has improved a lot over the last eight weeks. There were a lot of verb tense errors in my writing but it has gotten better. There is always room for improvement and I often find myself having a few sentence fragments and using a "clutch" word. I have been making us of the thesaurus to help reduce the redundit use of a word.
There are other areas in my writing that I have improved on. I have improved on my grammar, verb constructions, use of verb tenses and organizational skills to make my writing flow better when reading. My overall progress in completing this ten weeks course was wonderful. Every steps and skills I learned in this English class will help me to improve on my writing skills in my other classes and will also help me in my future
From the start, you have commented on my text stating that it “challenges the reader,” and that “you love [my] sentence style”. The feedback that you provided on my Personal Essay stayed intact throughout the semester, and was even more available in my Destination Essay. I had “interesting ideas” and “big moments” for the audience, according to you. Based on these comments, my self-awareness regarding my voice improved greatly in each assignment. I grew as a writer in the sense that I provided riveting topics and ideas for the reader each and every time; I felt that I engaged the audience well because I was able to switch up the mood occasionally.
