Reading this book gave me a great indication on what type of reader I was. Being only a little kid, this book took me weeks to finish. Always procrastinating, and finding ways to get out of it. The type of reader I would describe myself when I first started reading was sluggish. Having this issue, I got put into an “extra help” reading class.
Writing process is difficult to realize since it requires a lot of skills and knowledge. Definitely, not many of us can start writhing right away without having any problems such as grammar, vocabulary or organization. However, a person can become a better writer if he or she will practice writing every day and will pay attention to his writing problems. To become a good writer, I have to improve my grammar, follow specific steps in writing process, and avoid using similar transitional words. Grammar is the number one problem in the writing process and causes me a lot of issues.
These past few months have been interesting. I procrastinated (more than I should have), written a few papers, but I have also learned a lot about writing. Walking into this I had some writing experience but not nearly as much as I should of had. I knew how to summarize, cite, and work in groups but this class gave me the opportunity to fine tune those skills and learn new skills. College should not be taken lightly and The first new skill I learned was how to write a college level paper.
I am not a talker, so writing for me is straight to the point and then I’m done. Trying to generate ideas and other things to write about is a challenge for me. It will normally take me a couple of hours to write a good paper, and I’m only taking about a rough draft. The way I generate ideas is to just freestyle it until I have enough words typed or written down that I can so what play with and try to make sense out it. If I think about a subject
The words “I” or “me” weren’t allowed in the essay, unless they were in quotes. I never wrote anything without writing my thoughts on the subject. Also, the language that is used in the book made it even harder for me to understand what was really going on in the novel, which made the essay harder for me to write. This was the first time writing an essay like this, so it was difficult to me for that reason. After writing the essay, my knowledge on my writing skills have increased.
Throughout this semester, I have had many struggle when it came down to doing an assignment for ENC1102. When it comes down to my growth, I have noticed throughout my papers that various struggle I had in the past, are now not as difficult for me. One of the main examples of this is being able to clearly state my thesis. The thesis statement has always been an issue for me because I never really knew how to get my point across clearly through a thesis statement. When doing the proposal, I had to figure out how to properly state my thesis and have it linked into the rest of the paper.
When I have an idea on my mind, I always struggled to write it out as a legit sentence. Although I know that I should change my wording when I am writing down my thoughts, I cannot think of a formal expression in a short time. This is the most time consuming process when I am writing. I find an interesting fact about my writing that I can write faster when I am writing my journals on real paper. It is not because the contents of the journals are easier since I can write both reading responses and unscripted entries faster than typing into my laptop.
It took until college for me to understand that the paper didn’t need somewhat irrelevant information for strength, but that it just needed more relevant information to get the full idea across. The only “taboo” things that I personally had to change was my grammar and word choice because I tend to say something while talking and write it down and it makes no sense when I re-read the paper. I also don’t think that I have ever learned how to create an outline properly for a
Throughout the duration of this class, I have been highly reflective on my work, but have failed to take into consideration past mistakes when developing new assignments. From the Personal Narrative Essay to the Destination Essay, common errors have take place amongst them all. Specifically, I have struggled to make the syntax of my essays less confusing and allow my explanations to be more detailed, but have always been successful in sharing interesting ideas with the audience. The first way that I have struggled to become more flexible and self-aware is by the lack of using correct syntax. Within almost every essay written during first semester, I came across multiple comments made by you that reflect my difficulty creating sentences
With adpating to the changes around me I hope that I can bring improvement to them and get back where I am usually at. Most of the time when things get steady I find simplier to keep up and to produce better work-quality with my time studying. However, being steady is my weak point right now and I got to learn more study habits that will allow me to adjust easier this semester than my last few. Evualt, pratice, time management are three implrant parts of studying, and by applying these it helps me with the stucture I need. Finishing entry September 3,2014, I hope this can be found useful to anyone who is trying figure out what type study habit they
Reading her essay some experience does and does not align with my own experience when it comes to writing. The first thing is my experience when I write is to do it at the last minute, sometimes I don 't even write a first draft. Second thing is, many times my raft draft would be my final paper. When it comes to writing I don 't like taking days and days just to write one paper; if i am going to write one paper I am going to write it in one day. Many times it hard for me to sit down and write whatever comes to mind.
I wait for that to happen to me, but I find myself stuck. I didn’t how to start writing because I kept over thinking that whatever I had thought already was wrong.Thesis:For me, the best author that provided me with the most valuable information was Anne Lamott’s “Getting Started” because she gave me ways of how I can begin to write when I have zero ideas as to what to write, how and where to write it. This chapter served as a guideline for whenever I find myself struggling with writing. I even looked back at it with this assignment because I was feeling insecure as to what I was writing. 1st Body: Whenever I get an essay assignment I begin to stress.
We had to write about hate groups, and how they affected people around them. After hearing about this, my anxiety levels went through the roof, in middle school, we wrote no more than two paragraphs. To say that my confidence in my writing ability was low, was a bit of an understatement. I could state my ideas as good as anybody else. Putting those ideas onto paper, however, was something that has always eluded me.
The life of the class. Of course during third period not everyone is going to wear on their sleeves what they feel after second period is over and they rush to finish the last line of their DEJ or the sparknotes summary of chapter 12. God, I did not like the Scarlett Letter or Outliers. Yet I still read cover to cover. Even though Hawthorne 's language bothered me and I wasn’t completely in agreement with the idea that innate talent didn’t matter.
Many bestselling authors would not know what the ending of their novel was at first. Because how teachers assign essays today, we feel the need to come up with a subject to write about or we’ll feel unorganized and lost. Another myth is that good writers get it right the first time. I instantly knew this was not to be. If that was true then why are there so many editors in the writing
