This is where I learned the most about myself as both a writer and a reader. Initially, when writing my first draft, I focused on just the most prominent aspects of the article such as how Schulz framed her argument through a story and kept things factually and historically based rather than outwardly asserting her bias. Both subjects became the crux of my analysis, but my original draft lacked the analysis aspect a bit in that I had to dig deeper and provide better examples to support my stance. For example, in my original draft I focused a bit too much on bias and went to the extreme of saying that Schulz kept all bias out of her narrative and kept it completely objective. After further digging into Schulz’s background, and for what publication this article was established under, I had to rephrase this subject to acknowledge the bias but counter-argue why her credentials does not devalue the points she makes in “Citizen Khan.” I was prompted to reevaluate the phrasing and depth of the topics I addressed in my analysis by the comments on the first draft by my Professor.
The next step, Karen recommends on our journey towards offering a professional self-published book is a good proofreader. I consider myself to be a good proofreader, but it has been my experience that I do not proof my own work nearly as closely as I do that of other writers, especially the one who wrote the cringe worthy eBook. This is because I tend to skim over my own words without really seeing them clearly since I already know what comes next and what I mean. For this reason I think it is a good idea to heed this
Without one or the other, the novel would not have the same effect on the reader. The difference between the dialogue and the narrative is clear and important, but it also gives a message for the reader from McCarthy. What McCarthy is trying to tell all the readers with the contrasting dialogue and narration is that neither is a bad way to write. The dialogue which is simple and to the point is also very informative and the narration which is complex and elongated to extreme degrees is elegant and thought-provoking. McCarthy shows the reader that two writing styles that would be seen as bad at first can be made to work perfectly to fit the theme of a novel through The
Although the speech speaks for itself, there were some confusing parts that I later understood. When I approached this assignment I knew that I was going to have to dig in deep and understand the speech to be able to start my assignment. I really enjoyed reading the Gettysburg address because, it's always great reading about events that happened in past history and how they've changed the world. I felt the work I did was difficult but I pushed myself so I would to be able to give an explanation on the what I was trying to
This topic expresses the importance of people who have a small part doesn’t necessarily mean they will have a insufficient existence in the story as well. Bradbury expressed this in Fahrenheit 451 on the grounds that it added an important detail in the novel as a way to open the reader’s eyes to the limited details around them and how those slight specifics could have a tremendous outcome in their
Going into this book, I thought their traditions were very strange. However, as I progressed through the pages, I agreed more and more with their perspective. I hadn’t expected to come out of this course passionate about another culture that originated halfway around the
Nevertheless, I am proud of how the paper turned out. One of the assignments I am proud of is a mini essay about how to write an argumentative paper. The point of the assignment was to show that I know the steps to writing an argumentative paper. I feel like I clearly outlined all of the steps necessary. However, I could have improved the essay by not addressing the reader.
When it comes to writing I have weak and strong points. My strongest point out of those three elements would be making sure my writing is factual in basis. This happens to be my strongest point because I find that when it comes to doing research for my writing it is much easier. Maybe because I know what it is that I 'm searching for before I decide to begin. Also, researching your information gives it more of a firm stance and makes your information a more reliable source.
I also planned to read a lot and spending more time in composing my essays by going through multiple drafts. Unfortunately, I didn 't followed out my initial plan as much I wanted to. I believe my plan is realistic, however the real problem is that I 'm lack of motivation. I know why I should work hard for my classes but I often find it difficult for me to motivate
So, my journey of becoming a writer is long and difficult. Until I took 39C, I thought my writing journey would end up miserably. However, writing 39C finally gave me some hope in writing. Unlike the former writing classes, 39C allows us to choose our own topic, do our own research, create complicate thesis and use supporting topic sentences. Also, the choice of source seems really importance in 39C.
It needed the proper balance between too much and too little. This paper also could not use complex language or she would not understand. In this writing I also was able to apply a few tips I learned specifically about this type of paper. In my paper I combined some steps so that it would be less confusing and easier for her to accomplish, just like I learned. I also included reasons of why each step was important and what happened when the tasks were not completed.
Reading American Scholar and Civil Disobedience, stuck out to me the most. By going in depth with reading American Scholar and Civil disobedience I slowly developed my skill in reading older pieces of text, and truly understanding what they mean. Initially reading them was really rough as I was limited in my understanding of the purpose of the text, and the rhetorical devices that were embedded within them. As I learned that teamwork was quite important in situations like this, as my table mates and I had to exchange ideas and different standpoints with each other to decipher the text and learn the author 's true message. Before I was stubborn to use my table mates for help because I considered myself a fairly independent person, however I
Reflective Letter on MWA #1 I believe that the purpose of major writing assignment number one was to improve our interview skills and solidify our understanding of genre as used in the context of our class. For this writing assignment I created a Weebly website that is meant to teach the class about the most important genre used in the field of computer science. To successfully do this I first gave a brief description of what computer science entails and that what it does not, I then followed up the description with a few questions and answers from my interview while also describing my professor that I interviewed. Finally, I began writing about my genre—developmental collaborative writing on a whiteboard—and gave its purpose followed by a few links. These links lead to the descriptions of my genre’s audience, rhetorical factors, structure, and style of writing; with all of the information presented on my website there should be a good enough description of developmental collaborative writing to help my fellow classmates understand what it is.
