There are various steps you have to follow to make your paper an “A” paper. One of the first steps I take is writing my full paper first, then going back to make sure there is no fragments or contractions. This step is tough to accomplish because it is heavy on taking up most of my time of proofreading. One of my downfalls in writing is I get focused on typing my paper, that I don’t use correct grammar and punctuation that later on turns into fragments. The biggest progress I made from my Preliminary Assignment to Paper One, I did not use fragment sentences.
One thing I notice is that the comments remind me the errors that I have overlooked. It is always good for me to know what other students see in my writing and help me fix it. I think the habit that hinders my writing is when I write too much or
This course required me to embrace the opposite of what I was used to and almost relearn how to write for public relations. Writing this news release was difficult for me, so I took my time on the drafts. The first draft was especially difficult because I wasn’t used to this writing style. Staying in active voice and being concise was a struggle. I spent at least four hours writing and editing the release for the workshop, and an additional one to two hours making changes for the assignment submission.
This goal is one I am still pursuing, as I have a few tasks I am still trying to become proficient at. The goals I am still working on are punctuation, sentence structure, and becoming accustomed to writing in my discipline. One thing I have tried to improve my writing is reading it aloud. This has solved many of the sentence structure mistakes, such as run on and nonsense sentences. Punctuation is still a work in progress.
So I did my best to try and show that I didn’t need the extra help like some others did, but all my hard work went in vain and I was never able to get out of the class. I began to feel as if my writing wasn’t good enough and I began to slack on my writing and reading. And by the time I got into middle school, I wasn’t as enthusiastic about literacy as a once
Go dam it, why is it so difficult to write without the letter I makes me feel like I don’t understand clearly. Although I’m not good at writing, ironically I’ve thought about becoming an English professor. Just the thought about becoming an English professor makes me feel unique. I enjoy helping others and influencing others’ so teaching would be the perfect career for
I think the main problem I had was not believing in the thesis I chose and not picking a better one. Since I left this piece unfinished, there was a lot to be improved on it. There was only an introduction, so I did my best to add the remaining parts of it. This included writing support for my thesis and providing sources to do this. This revision was more difficult than the polished revision since I had to basically write an entire essay from the
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?
Only I know what I enjoy to read and will not put me to sleep. When we got to pick what I wanted to read about and write the paper on. I could really get focused into the book and paper because it interested me. Now only a couple of papers interest me and keep me attuned to the book. The ECA had me read a boring story then write a paper about it, and that was a struggle for me because the story was beginning to bore me to death.
Writing is one of my many concerning in my PhD program. Every time when it comes to writing I feel nervous and stressed. I actually I used to love writing in my first language and I was good at it. Nevertheless, writing in English is another experience and quite difficult. To be honest I tried to avoid the class at first time, even though we have to do writing in other classes.
In my essays I would have all kinds of run on sentences and comma splice errors. I would be looking over my paper and I would not see any issues with how it was worded. When someone else would read it, they would get stuck on sentences and become confused. While reviewing my drafts for each essay, I started to get tougher on myself on each essay as the class progressed. I started to dig deeper before I would call the essay ready to turn in for the final draft.
