Selection of characters, plot, start and ending of our story will depend upon our target readers. It is also very important that before you start writing such type of stories you should read some of the famous writers of the same type. But most importantly don’t copy their style; rather create one of your own. Once you have selected your target readers; you need to select the characters. It is a good option that you yourself become the main character and narrator of the story.
Taking different English and writing classes has allowed me to write different types of papers. One paper that can be very challenging is the personal narrative. There are certain requirements that you must follow; each paper is different depending on who assigns it. When I am assigned to write this type of paper, usually it is dreadful to start and accomplish. This type of paper should just be removed from college writing courses.
So I practiced, a lot, and I believe that helped me. I remember coming home and I would practice writing words together and try my hardest to stay between the lines and make sure my letters were straight. Within time my handwriting did get better, but like I said it took time. I believe what the authors Graham has to say; the way you write affects the type of writer you are. I absolutely hated writing, why?
I have personally always disliked writing, especially an assignment like this one that is so creative and open to one 's own ideas. They cause me a lot of stress. I like to be given a topic or specific writing instructions when it comes to writing an essay. I like structure, facts, and ideas that I can use, or maybe it’s because I don’t like writing about myself. I really don’t know, but what I do know is that writing to me is a way to express yourself.
I chose this writing assignment because I did not successfully address the prompt, and I feel like it is important I understand what really was being asked for this assignment. At first I was really overwhelmed because it was the first assignment and the process was confusing to me somehow at that time. When it came to rewriting, I re-read the prompt, notes, process done, and comments to see where I did not follow the process. I went back to change my arguments more into how this affects the audience. For strengths, my evidence is still strong, but as a weakness I still not a hundred percent sure it flows well.

Writers should seek advice from others when trapped by their own limited mind. They have to put in the hard work to achieve the goal, and finally they must persevere through the overwhelming struggle of writing to
“Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things.”- Ray Bradbury Everyone in life over thinks things at times especially when writing, but writers need to get their heads down and get their pens to paper.
In writing, people may be good at some things and bad at others, it all depends on the person. Personally, I know that my weakness as a writer is grammar mistakes. These mistakes do not include silly mistakes such as knowing when to use their, there, or they’re. But bigger mistakes such as my editing skills, over using commas, knowing where to place commas, and going off on a tangent creating a run-off sentence. These mistakes have become a habit of mine, which I continuously make whenever I am writing papers.
Writing an essay can be intimidating. There are so many steps that you must follow that it can be overwhelming before you can say that you finished. But don’t worry. “Writing for an Audience” by Linda Flower, “The Maker’s Eye: Revising Your Own Manuscripts” by Donald Murray, and my personal experience will demonstrate the process of writing an essay: outline, drafting, review, revising, editing, and proofreading in detail. Before any writing, it is recommended that you start off brainstorming.

In the article “Shitty First Drafts” by Anne Lemott she discusses how every writer has difficulty putting their ideas on paper because writing should be seen as a process that even the best and famous writers follow. She also talks about how even the best writers don’t just come with ideas and just begin writing on paper and make it as their final draft. Lemott also points out the importance of being able to just write down every thought into the first draft regardless of the structure of the draft and how it makes it easier to start the second draft. After writing the second draft it makes the final draft a review of punctuation and grammar corrections. As a food reviewer she struggled putting her ideas together because she would start doubting
What I learned that certain events may occur and it will change your thought over something. The steps I had to take was to write a outline overview of what my essay was going to be like and think about the argument and claims I had to pick to support it and find quotes in the book that support my claims. We had to do timed essay about are theme of the essay were going to on. The way we wrote the essay was in TIED format because it would be easier to introduce the claim and back it up with evidence and finally discuss what it means. The leadership skill I used was to complete project effectively because I had to concentrate what I was writing about.
My biggest need is just the need to be better prepared and second to be more organized. Practice and opportunities to speak in front of a group will help to continue to develop speaking skills. During interviews, I dislike questions about how I feel or a time when I reacted a certain way. Just like in a speech situation I feel everything is moving too fast and I need to remember to slow down, take a breath and remember I’ll be fine. Like with many people, I can be my own worst
