My writing process has improved drastically because of all the practice i have had. What I have learned about writing is a good essay has a beginning, middle, and end. I also learned authors use quotes in the middle of their story to make their writing more suspenseful. Great writing has only enough words to get the gist or main idea of the story. If there is too many words in writing, the reader can get bored of the story.
However, I also have weaknesses to go along with my strengths. There are many areas I need to improve in, and I am willing to put the effort into making these things strengths. I need to work on studying for tests and quizzes, for short periods of time each day, leading up to them. I have found out recently

A student themselves chooses whether or not their education will be an extra challenge in life. It depends on how ambitious one is to be a successful person in the future, or how lazy a person is and not having any motivation or inspiration to do better. Not everything in life will come in easy, so there is nothing that I can have too much of that cannot be an advantage later on. That being said, there are reasons to why each of us was driven to take AP Literature, having in mind of what we want to gain from it, and eventually you will realize what can be expected from each and every single one of us.
In high school, I hated writing essays for my English classes. At first, I did not have a reliable writing process. I would free write a rough draft and turn it in as a final draft. I would also write last minute instead of using the time to create a well-thought essay. I focused more on passing a class rather than boosting my writing skills. Now that I am in college, I take writing seriously. Throughout the years, my writing process has drastically changed. As a writer, I will continue to advance my writing skills. Prewriting is significant when preparing for an essay, although this step is most of the time ignored. The process of writing is just as important as the writing itself. Prewriting is great for writers to have an organized essay.

I felt myself learning more of who I wanted to become with each question that I answered in this week’s questionnaire. I knew there was a certain direction that I wanted my life, and my goals, to go, but this analysis really helped me to understand that in a deeper way.

I will be speaking on how I would like to build my strengths and reduce gaps between my ideal self and my real self. I will also, for the sake of this paper, insert some of my question/answer responses to particular questions within this assignment.
