What helped me the most with this paper is simply being in class. There was always some short lectures which helped me write the paper better. Those small things from those lectures helped me with the assignment. If I were to say my weakest paper was the first short story analysis paper because it was all over places. No topic sentences was present in paragraphs.
I have always enjoyed reading and writing, however, writing, never came so naturally for me. It has been ten years since my last English, or writing class. The extent of my writing today is limited to emails between co-workers, or simply texting on my cellphone. In the military you are trained to get straight to the point.

However, and luckily to my surprise I was very happy I attended. I’ve always had issues when using words such as you’re or your, when to use commas, and I would admit it I would
I believe that, in my type of writing, I am more prone to incorrectly using punctuation, because of my tendency to type what I see, as if I was saying it. I believe it especially so because of my lack of knowledge in certain punctuation; such as semicolons & ampersands. (Not to mention parentheses). But, once again, thanks to this class I will no longer make small mistake in my writing like those in the previous sentences. Each lesson is available to me, should I forget, and I have many examples and tests to assist me in the future.

Although it may not seem like a big deal in hindsight, the first time I failed a test taught me one of the biggest lessons I ever learned: the value of knowing that you are always enough, no matter the situation. As a freshman in high school, I was used to getting good grades with little effort. So taking an AP class seemed like an easy opportunity to buff up my transcript. Little did I know that that would be one of the hardest classes I would take. On one of the first tests we took I scored a forty percent.

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.

It took me some time to complete it but it now makes me think when I write. I absolutely hated ACT prep but it really helped, I was very pleased with one of my
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).
