My Writing Experience I have never been good writing, I was never really exposed to it until my tenth grade year in high school. It was my first year at Clinton High school, August 17, 2013, I had the hardest english teacher in my grade. I already had imagined how that year was going to go. Looking back at it now it was not as bad I thought it would be I learned a lot from that class. The beginning of the year started of rough as we started writing our first essay.
Shush Your Wien Draft one: Little Eaglet, ahh, nah this is not the perfect essay for submitting, who would even want to read it my 15 pages?! Draft two: The day of my death. Well this is has great words but not a great personal narrative. Draft three: The real I was gone. Yes, this one is good but too short “Ooh Lucy you’ve spent the whole day on your essay and you are still not getting what to write about, Just sleep and close your eyes everything will be alright when you wake up!” said Wien Wien is my friend, a friend ?
), do I ever, will I ever, regret reading The Raven Cycle. Stiefvater has dug herself a firm place in the history of life changing reads that have affected dear Jess’ life. I used to be a little ignorant child before, with my mindset that cried “Sophistication is reserved for all those books validated by a group of men who sat around a round table and decided the who's who of the literary canon”. I never knew Young Adult fiction to be surprising. Like I said, I was ignorant.
Homework has been the bane of many a students existence for the past years, as countless think it’s unimportant. Restless nights of practicing equations and writing paragraphs are known by all children, especially within high school. Contrary to belief, homework benefits the average student so much more than people care to acknowledge. It conditions the minds of our children to think independently and become familiar with the knowledge they’ve gained. Grueling nights of completing page after page of homework only ready you for upcoming school work, much like in the words of Malcolm X, “The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.” The war on homework has been going on for quite some time, originally being upscaled in America during 1950’s to keep up with communist nations.
For the longest, time I hated writing; I despised it. When writing, all I could think of was school, and the fact that I must complete the assignment promptly and correctly the first time or else I will lose points. The looming sharp and jagged clawed shadow monster of stress was the only thing with me when I wrote. Then one summer’s day, thanks to one man, I found
In all the years I’ve been going to school I have had the most trouble with writing. All of the teachers I’ve had would tell me that I just needed to keep working on my writing any I would see a huge change. That never happened. Whenever I would write it always looked the same to me with no changes. My writing is always fairly choppy I think and I could not figure out how I could smooth it out.
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
I hate writing because I lose my strain of thought when it comes to writing a paper. I start off well with the introduction then by the third paragraph my mind is blank. Funny thing is I have a lot of ideas that I could type but just can’t express them when it’s time to write.
