The article by Donald Murray entitled, “The Maker’s Eye: Revising Your Own Manuscripts” provides readers a better understanding of the writing process and argues that writers learn to write, by writing and rewriting. Murray also contends that writers must learn to be their own best enemy. Well, I believe I have this trait covered! I will confess, that I purposely saved this course for last, due to the number of years between my last structured learning experience and returning to school to complete a BSN degree.
Reading and Writing are Important Stephen King's "Reading to Write" (72) give details about King's methods on becoming a better writer. To become a better writer, you must read a whole heap of books. There are so many other things you can read other than books like magazines, newspapers, labels on food, and papers. As a student in college, I understand Stephen King's methods. Reading and Writing will help me further my college education, and it will help me get to my goal.
The SAT test or Scholastic Aptitude Test (qualifying test for applicants) - the test, inspiring fear and terror to all who goes to college or university. Despite all the myths and horror stories about this exam, if you prepare yourself well enough mentally and psychologically, you will be able to receive a good score on the SAT. Not too difficult (as it may seem at first glance) to calm down, to pull oneself together and make sure that all the necessary information for the test on the day of the exam is in your head. Firstly, about the SAT: it is a test owned and managed by the College Board that allows the heads of higher education institutions to assess the knowledge of the applicant in their university.
Brainstorming, writing an outline, writing the body, creating a title—there are numerous steps one can use in the writing process! This paper will discuss the writing process I use personally. When I write a paper, I follow four main steps: brainstorming, writing a rough draft, revising, and composing a final draft. Writing a paper can be a daunting task; therefore, when I write, the first thing I do is brainstorm. Because I normally have several ideas in my head, I find it extremely helpful to organize my ideas by documenting them on paper.
Good writing can only be seen throughout text if there is evident time, thought, and interaction with the text. In our society today, there is often a lack of these three elements that are vital to the composition and effectiveness of a piece. In order to reach the bare minimum in terms of “good writing”, one must take these precedents into serious consideration otherwise, the author will not be writing at their full potential. Each of the three necessary components are briefly touched upon one way or another by three of the most renown authors: William F. Buckley, Jr., George Orwell, and Francine Prose. Together, these three craft a mean definition that fulfill the standards in, especially in this day and age.
As a writer one of my two strengths are coming up with a story. Whenever I write I tend to have an idea on how I want my story to start and finish. I imagine what I want to write by putting my story in point form, gathering the necessary research before I move to completing the story. I feel organization and planning is important and effective to have a good essay. Every time I write I am constantly proofreading my work.
Hello class, Well let me start off by saying English is one of my toughest subjects, my writing process is still in process. I like to read material that catches my attention. If it does not catch my attention I will have a hard time trying to read the material. Also the same with writing.
My writing process is like a car on the road. There are moments where the car just keeps on driving and then sometimes the car comes across a road block. The car has to find a different pathway to reach the destination. It is pretty scary being the last child in my family of four to attend college. I’m expected to know more than my older sibling and parents since I have been taught everything they know about life.
Writing is great until you have to sit down and do it. The sentences never seem to flow into the brilliant paragraphs I had planned for them, and descriptions never build the picture the way it was drawn up in my head. I have never been entirely confident in my ability, probably for good reason. That said, I have always had a love hate relationship with writing; I can sit down and crank out a report on my high school’s basketball team in a half an hour, on the other hand I had to write limericks in my seventh grade English class and I am still working on them.
I’m not very good at writing. This paper that you're reading right now was a struggle for me to think of it. If I really try and work and keep brainstorming I can write a great paper, but it takes me forever. I’m not a writer. I hate writing.
