I don’t like writing untrue or fiction information(Except if it has something to do with either utopian and dystopian fiction) . I wouldn't be the best candidate if you were trying to persuade someone. In class, I love doing speed writes. It lets me focus on putting my ideas on paper instead of trying my best to make a sentence perfect. I write quicker one prompts that are more specific.
Writing takes much of your time and can be fun to do when it comes to your favorite thing that you want to talk about. When you write you must research the topic you want to talk about. You must know what sources are acceptable to your teacher and what is not acceptable. When writing a story, you also must analyze in your research to see what was well
This process is then followed by class peer review (I often aim to finish the paper before the peer review process begins so that I can get effective critiques from my peers and my professors since she also reviews our work). After receiving the critiques on how to make my paper better, the next step is editing the essay before visiting the writing center. At the writing center, I usually only check for grammar and structure errors (I always prefer that writing center workers read my paper out loud for me so that I can hear how it sounds from an outsider’s perspective). Also, some professors usually give students extra credit for
I knew I was good at writing as I was often asked to write for the school magazine or website, but I didn’t know what makes me a good writer. Before attending university, I made a commitment to engage in English classes and join writing workshops, so I could refine my writing. I wanted to learn how to write better essays with a wider range of vocabulary and less grammatical errors. I knew this course would help me improve my writing, though I didn 't know much about the learning process and goals. Through this course, I have realized my weaknesses and strength as a writer and learned how to structure and write an academic essay.
I found out that I need to develop my writing skills more, improve the organization of my ideas and always pay attention to what is being ask in the problem. I wished that I gave more time practicing my speeches, I was not lazy nor slacking but I think I settled. I know I could have done better. However, I feel that I'm accomplished, I gained confidence in speaking in public. The speech class thought me how to be a listener, because if you ask me, I will rather go home after I spoke each meeting.
My Relationship with Writing The relationship I have with writing is that of a love and hate theme. Throughout elementary, middle, and high school, I developed a veiled understanding of what writing would relinquish if only I would take the time to learn to do it correctly. Even though I wrote in a journal as a child, and still do as an adult, there is no rhyme or reason to the writing. There were highs and lows with regards to my attitude about writing during my younger years. As a working adult, I write with a simplistic style about experiences at work and with family, as well as now with school.
To some people it is not. Some teachers say that the book is challenging for students. Now, this novel may be difficult for students, but that is how students learn new information. If students weren’t to have read harder pieces of literature all throughout their schooling career, they would stay at the same level of reading for most of their life. The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read.
I believe that, in my type of writing, I am more prone to incorrectly using punctuation, because of my tendency to type what I see, as if I was saying it. I believe it especially so because of my lack of knowledge in certain punctuation; such as semicolons & ampersands. (Not to mention parentheses). But, once again, thanks to this class I will no longer make small mistake in my writing like those in the previous sentences. Each lesson is available to me, should I forget, and I have many examples and tests to assist me in the future.
My experience as a reader isn 't as extraordinary as many, but I love to read. I had some great teachers throughout my education that taught me to enjoy reading challenge oneself and not be intimidated by it. Through college and today I do not have much time to read, other than school books speech, education ,and reading. Those are the sweet books I know read. Beside all those school books I now read, I use to read books about life, and history I also lloved mystery books the ones that make one wonder and keep you guessing till the end.
My skills for writing are not where I want them to be, but if I feel like I can better respond critically to other individuals points of views. There are a countless number of things I need to work on, but I can say I am still getting better overtime. Taking the writing 102 course made me view writing as less of a burden to me. Writing now does not seem to be very difficult for me, but more fun because I can be more creative and break thing down. There’s more freedom so I can also thing about what the author is trying to say or reveal to his or her readers.
