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. The examples that I have mentioned are what I believe I need to improve on the most because it has been occurring throughout most of my writing. However, in this essay, the textual evidence and examples are what I think I did well
An example is “Charles book” should be “Charles’s book”, but instead I put “Charles’ book”. I have pondered and decided that I do these types of errors because I don’t look deep enough at my writing to find these errors. A second reason for my errors is that I type to fast
Looking Back Looking back through my papers that I have written for Dual Comp. English III, I realized that I struggled greatly with the use of transition words. I had always used the same few in my papers for other classes and did not understand their importance. I learned that transition words can make a paper really good if used correctly, or really bad if they are non-existent. While writing for Dual Comp.
One out of the three weaknesses is organizing ideas. Whenever I am caught up in the moment, I tend to lose track of organization in Writing. The second weakness is not being specific about my topic enough for the readers to understand what my paper is mostly about. My third and final weakness in English is punctuation. Every time I type or write, I tend to miss out most of the punctuation in my paper.
The book showed real life examples of every illusion and how people are caught up in them every day. I learned that these illusions can and probably already did, lead me to make shocking mistakes. One of the quotes that stood out in the book was, "Beware of memories accompanied by strong emotions and vivid details—they are just as likely to be wrong as mundane memories, but you’re far less likely to realize it." It made me realize that memories that I remember from meaningful events could just be wrong as something that I didn’t care if it was incorrectly remembered. It shows that things you think you remember could not be that at all.
She states “we all often feel like we are pulling teeth” when it comes to constructing and composing a piece of work (Lamott 468). This simile makes Lamott feel more relatable to the reader because this is a feeling that most inexperienced and discouraged writers go through. Saying things like “feel despair and worry settle on my chest like an x-ray apron” only connects the reader to Lamott even more (Lamott 469). Once the reader becomes engaged and forms a connection with what the writer is saying and feeling, continuing to read the essay is easy. At this point the reader wants to know what can be done to shake the feelings of “despair and worry” when it comes to
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
Being proper and always having a college level academic tone when writing was something that was very important. In addition, using slang or other unfamiliar terms could make an audience confused, leading to a very messy paper. Also, I realized that audiences have a different perspective on things and they can make assumptions, leading to counter arguments. When writing, I learned that I must be constantly aware of my audience questioning things in my
Another one of my biggest weaknesses as a writer is my usage of Punctuation and Capitalization; therefore, there were a couple of times where I did not capitalize the names of particular people, or the names of particular places. Although paragraph unity and punctuation are two of my foremost weaknesses, my biggest weakness out of them all is my comma usage. There were multiple occasions in my paper where I placed a comma and it was not necessary; on the other hand, there were also multiple instances in my paper where my usage of commas was completely absent. Although I have many strengths and many weaknesses as a writer there are always different devices I can use to improve both my strengths and my weaknesses. Through the usage of these different devices such as Paper Rater and Online Dictionary I anticipate to continue my growth as a college level
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.
Personally writing essays are just boring, and that makes it even harder to write a good one, it’s like pulling teeth. The more I write the better I am becoming at writing a great essay. Spelling and proper punctuation has always been a major issue in my writing. Failing to properly check my spelling and grammar sounds like common sense, but for some reason I sometimes forget to use spell check after writing and hit the send button
A writing error is a point in a piece of writing where the author unknowingly creates a moment of confusion for the reader in such a way that it detracts from the piece’s meaning. A writing mistake sounds like something that is more of an “oopsie” that the writer created something that wasn’t exactly what they were trying to articulate, but they are able to realize it was a mistake when they evaluate it. I guess what drives the two apart is the fact that errors, even upon further reading, don’t jump out to the writer as being inaccurate. Whether they be mistakes or errors, it’s important for a tutor to understand the root of these inaccuracies in ESL papers. Minett discusses “contrastive rhetoric” and how writing faux pas may actually be
What Gareth had trouble with the most was when Cook exclaims, “If I try to write notes by hand write notes by hand while someone is talking…confused feelings” (Cook 159), he explain how when writing notes its harder for when someone is talking because of how fast the person is talking which can confuse a dyslexic person the most. These things that Gareth Cook has accomplished proves that others can do the same even without having dyslexia. As Cook states, “It’s never going to be easy, but put your heart into it and you will blow them away. (Cook
For example, in my essay, Writing: Just Spit it Out Already, the visual sarcasm drips from the pixels but it is confusing and has no definitive path. In reviewing, Writing: Just Spit It Out Already! and A Modern Cougar, along with reviewing personal experiences; I can see the struggles of my writing because clichés, metaphors and idioms clog the flow of for the reader. Like with Writing: Just Spit it Out! I can see that I use creative innuendos to display my point, but that can come off as confusing references if not already understood.
