I love writing so much that although sometimes I feel like a failure, I won’t let myself give up on it. My weaknesses though, now that is a long line. I tend to get off topic sometimes which is really bad when writing stories. Another weakness

    Megan Mangia Mrs. Shinaberry CCC, Period 3 September 3, 2015 My Journey as a Writer My life as a writer began twelve years ago and ever since then, it has been a writing journey of ups and down.

    A writer is someone who creates literature using the influence as well as the power of words.

    My Inspiration as a Writer Why do we write? What experiences affect your identity as a writer? How do you develop your own voice? These are the questions that lead me to reflect on relevant moments in my life where I can apprehend my inspiration for writing. When I read a book, I want the moment to feel real. I want the author to get the message across so clearly that I can feel all the same emotions. I want the truth of the story. Although my inspiration for writing comes from various places, it

    two readings “Becoming a Writer” by Russel Baker and “Simplicity” by William Zinsser there are many things in common but there are also some differences in these two works “Simplicity” as a whole is stating that us as people and writers tend to use words of nonsense and “meaningless jargon” that do not need to be included in the writing to get your point across and are not needed to provide a positive reading experience for the reader. Zinsser is being a critic on writers and writing as a whole and

    I will admit at first when I started writing papers for English 150, I did not feel confident about them. But as I starting writing more paper for many classes I feel that I have improved. I still do not like writing papers, however I do not mind them as much I used to. I find it less hard to brainstorm ideas because of the resources I use. One of the important resources I have discovered throughout the semester is a writing specialist. Because of the student support service program (SSSP) I

Thus, while it is true that I have always known I would be attending OBU in pursuit of an English degree, it was not until I actually began my college career that I expounded upon my writer-oriented goals.

    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.

If the sentence sounds to sounds good, then I move onto the next sentence.

    As a "writer" I 've found my writing style to be more of a put together flourish of words and thoughts that in another 's opinion might seem like it never left the drafting stage (besides the few grammatical edits and big words to make it seem like it was written by someone smart). I went through a stage of writing in purely second person, and because of that I lost the ability to respect the need of more emotional descriptiveness. I 've gotten embarrassed to write in that context and end up passing

    I’ve come back to tell you more about my experiences as a writer this year. While some of my essays were rather. . . . well. . . bland, and unsuccessful for me, I feel as though i have come a long way from where i was in the beginning of the year. I think a big part of reaching my goals this year was taking the time to correct myself. The sound essay, to put it bluntly, holy crap was there an improvement. The original was a one-paged mess with absolutely zero point to it. I am very glad that

    Who am I as a writer? To be honest I stare at this paper for a really long time trying to figure out how to answer. I don’t really know what exactly describes a writer. But if I have to describe the way I write it would be by saying that I am a free writer. I like to make the readers see what I write and feel my words.
