She states “we all often feel like we are pulling teeth” when it comes to constructing and composing a piece of work (Lamott 468). This simile makes Lamott feel more relatable to the reader because this is a feeling that most inexperienced and discouraged writers go through. Saying things like “feel despair and worry settle on my chest like an x-ray apron” only connects the reader to Lamott even more (Lamott 469). Once the reader becomes engaged and forms a connection with what the writer is saying and feeling, continuing to read the essay is easy. At this point the reader wants to know what can be done to shake the feelings of “despair and worry” when it comes to

Deploying this sensory language has further enabled me to “show” my audience what I intend to communicate to them. It has also allowed me to spark more emotions in my readers to make my writing more relatable to them. I understood that to make my writing stand out to readers; I must find creative and new ways to describe detail to show my readers subtly, what I want them to visualize; instead of overusing basic descriptions. Through this technique, my descriptions in my work became one of my major assets as a writer. Instead of using empty adjectives which represent emotions such as the word "sadness," I learned to describe feelings through the use of dialogues and action in my storyline to spark stronger reactions in readers.

In Seamus’ Nobel Prize Speech he states, “I credit poetry for making this space-walk possible. I credit it immediately because of a line I wrote fairly recently instructing myself...” He used his life influenced the poetry that he made, and his experiences helped him to create his astounding work. Seamus Heaney, wrote some of his major works of
Updike wanted people to see the beauty in everyday life, something that A&P does with Sammy’s distinctive voice. Overall, the style of A&P is very diverse. Sammy goes back-and-forth between past and present tense, giving the allusion of him commenting on events as they are happening. This back-and-forth action makes the short story feel like a stream-of-consciousness storytelling. This type of storytelling is very effective for the simple fact that it makes the readers feel like they are able to take a stance on pro-conformist or nonconformist.

Wilfred Owen wrote a wonderfully poem that had great meaning to it. Richard Wilbur poem had a very interesting note to it I couldn’t find myself really understanding this poem, until I read some more. I loved these poems for the way they spoke about really events that had a significant impact in their lives.

It’s a long story full of ups and downs, but it is an important story. It is my story.
