My history as a writer has been a bit of a struggle of slow development. From a young age I had a hard time with spelling and this is still a trouble area for me, even with the help of autocorrect. As I grew in age and as a writer my problematic area became not including enough nitty gritty details. My bad experiences that I recall would always involve the start of writing because I struggle with beginning paragraphs. Also, I tend to use the ending paragraph to just repeat myself, so overall my first and last paragraphs are usually shit.
I’m not very good at writing. This paper that you're reading right now was a struggle for me to think of it. If I really try and work and keep brainstorming I can write a great paper, but it takes me forever. I’m not a writer. I hate writing.
My feelings toward writing aren 't good nor bad. Writing is something i have had difficulty with in my past. I have no problem brainstorming ideas on what topics to write my assignments on, even if i am given a prompt, but I do have difficulty with sitting down and planning my work. I always find myself getting stuck. So I almost never take the time out to plan out my ideas i come up with.
My strength as a writer seems to be the flow of my paper, finding good citations to support my argument, and writing in a clear manner. I still need to work on floating quotes, word choice, and synthesizing along with clarifying who said certain quotes. I am also working on scheduling more than enough time to write and perfect my essays because as much as I think I have allowed myself enough time I feel like the time is never enough.
Writing has been around for centuries; writing gives us the ability to say what we want others to know by merely using words. Throughout history many styles of writing have been developed and different styles can make the reader feel excited, scared, sad and or even left hanging onto the edge of their seat. Everyone has their own style of writing; from the touching scripts written by William Shakespeare. To Plato the great ancient philosopher in Greece who founded the Academy of Athens. These are just some examples of how writing has impacted us and why it is so important.
Through years of writing and learning how to improve, my style has been molded by not just writing words and facts, but also not write just opinions and two sides. I put my personality into my writing by, adding hints of my own justifications and commentary. Leading me to consider it a persuasive style, (literarydevices.net) writing ideas and facts all together yet getting my point across without specifically stating it. Thinking about it we just read Jon Krakauer, he gives facts and others opinion in multiple chapters but then inputs his own information and feelings towards Chris using persuasion, I like to balance my writing like that as well.
Brainstorming, writing an outline, writing the body, creating a title—there are numerous steps one can use in the writing process! This paper will discuss the writing process I use personally. When I write a paper, I follow four main steps: brainstorming, writing a rough draft, revising, and composing a final draft. Writing a paper can be a daunting task; therefore, when I write, the first thing I do is brainstorm. Because I normally have several ideas in my head, I find it extremely helpful to organize my ideas by documenting them on paper.
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
My writing process is like a car on the road. There are moments where the car just keeps on driving and then sometimes the car comes across a road block. The car has to find a different pathway to reach the destination. It is pretty scary being the last child in my family of four to attend college. I’m expected to know more than my older sibling and parents since I have been taught everything they know about life.
