Persuasion could be my strongest motive because it gives you a reason to connect to the reader. When attending to persuade someone I can use facts and logic from my point of view. I believe this is my strongest motive because I would know what to say when someone has the opposing idea of a topic. Also this is not an option so writer can use evidence in straightforward way to get a point across to the reader this can include strategy for one to trust the writer and his perspective on the
I enjoy reading the instruction manual. (And I hate bad ones, hello Ikea.) Freire writes about the process and I think that is what makes authentic writing so essential. Not a process in structure yet a process that allows the reader to move thru the process with the writer. It is crucial that communication through writing appeals to humanity in a way that it connects us in order to be
You may love it so much that it acts as an incentive to pick up another story to read. Some argue that short stories serve solely to entertain, but I have to disagree. I believe that short stories, along with all literature give readers insight on the human condition, and touches on what it means to be human. While entertaining, even if there is no “moral” lesson, you always take something away. Whether it be a new found understanding of something you couldn’t understand before, or perhaps a method of escaping the superficial world around you.
The accountability that a person may feel as a result of limitations becoming deciding factors for the future are not valid reasons to have self-blame. “You only have to let… your body love what it loves.” is a great example from the poem of how any limitations are not limitations at all if a person is doing something they love without second thoughts or regrets. Nearing the end of the poem the lines, “over and over announcing your place; in the family of things.” responds to the note that anything your body loves is something to be proud of. Allowing limitations to guide and control one’s life are direct paths to having regrets for not doing what is truly wanted or
If the writer cannot capture the reader 's attention through the creative backdrop, settings, then the foundation is not buildable and my story may be weak and uninteresting. A crafty writer connects emotionally to the reader through description, describing time, location, weather in such great detail the reader should live in the moment. The reader becomes emotionally attached to the story’s detail of events. Subsequently, without the setting edged in an emotional backdrop the story is just a bunch of information. Setting helps establish the author’s voice and create characters.
Though it would be strict setting because Wallace follows the rules and is very critical. Wallace follows the norms of SWE writing and that would make it easy because you would have certain guidelines you would need to follow to please Wallace. Though it might be hard to accomplish pleasing Wallace because he is such a strong critic, you would be provided with his exact expectations. Wallace doesn’t allow you to have any freedom or room to experiment. Having guidelines to follow, Wallace’s writing class wouldn’t be as fun as a descriptivist classroom setting, to me.
Specifically, the compare and contrast essay and the classification essay. I found these two essays to be the essays I had the most trouble with because it wasn’t something I was used to. I learned that how I thought it should be written wasn’t correct. By focusing on making my essays more understandable and making sure they have an easy flow I feel like I have not only improved my writing but also improved the way I speak and explain things to other
Whenever I think about what I have learned since the beginning of this course—English 101, It always gives me a great pleasure to tell myself and people around me that I have learned something great; something that can make me a better writer. However, I have learned some writing skills based on the course’s teaching learning objectives that can help me in my future courses. Also, I’m glad, because my strength in writing essays have increased. Most especially, writing narrative essay in MLA formatting. I might not be an excellent writer, but I know I have not stopped learning, and I know I will get pay-off in the long run if I can keep the ongoing pace of my learning—guaranteed.
Self-Reflection I feel like my strength as a writer would be creativity. I can come up with a story about pretty much anything from things that could actually happen to things that are completely impossible. Another strength of mine would be my love for writing. I love writing so much that although sometimes I feel like a failure, I won’t let myself give up on it. My weaknesses though, now that is a long line.
My writing process is what some might say is the least conventional and probably not the best, but I enjoy the way I write. I write the same way people brainstorm, the same way someone talks without revising in there head. I take the topic given and I think of a few ideas I could go with. Once I believe I have the idea I will go with, I open word on my lap top and begin writing. I first write the base of my paper getting the idea down and all of my thoughts.
My writing process has improved drastically because of all the practice i have had. What I have learned about writing is a good essay has a beginning, middle, and end. I also learned authors use quotes in the middle of their story to make their writing more suspenseful. Great writing has only enough words to get the gist or main idea of the story. If there is too many words in writing, the reader can get bored of the story.
The eagerness was prompted by my desire to see how far my writing has come. The thought of assessing the progress has been crucial in my passion for writing. My essays have improved greatly with minimal mistakes which on peer reviews have been cited as too minor to impact my growth as a writer. Drawing comparisons with my old jobs, I have to admit my writing is better organized and more professional in many ways. I now appreciate the need for specific and informative thesis.
The hook that opened the paragraph was interesting, but further in, Brecht’s poem was introduced then left without sufficient analysis or an explicit statement of the theme that I would be connecting to the memoir. The said memoir is also introduced without enough analysis, and the introduction overall lacks any clear statement of theme, although it does state that the themes from each piece connect in some vague way. The methods of improvement for these aspects of my essay are similar to those already said - the addition of transitions will make the essay less choppy to read, and planning early in the writing process will help with the flow and meshing of ideas, as well as clear statements as to topic and
Also, I tend to use the ending paragraph to just repeat myself, so overall my first and last paragraphs are usually shit. I find that I usually have more success when writing about something that I truly enjoy and struggle when talking about something I do not really care about. Both my parents were minimal to no help with writing

Also reading an assortment of writing will widen knowledge on the different formats people choose to write in.
