A common goal for many writers is to connect with their audience. In my previous essay for this class, my goal was to invite the reader into the magical world of Disney. Unfortunately, due to my lack of preparation, the invitation to the reader was lost. I also was unable to place myself into the viewpoint of the reader making me ineffective in connecting with the audience. For an essay to be effective in conveying a message to the reader it is imperative to always draft an organized outline and to put the author at the same point of view as the reader to avoid any confusion.

Organization is an ordered manner; where the author uses structure or a formulaic pattern to aid in the daunting task of preparing a well written essay. Some examples of organization in the prewriting process are outlines, brainstorming, journaling, webbing and clustering. As a writer organization has always been my biggest struggle in overcoming literary adversities. For example when I wrote my previous essay, my approach was to write the essay without using any form of organization. Instead, I chose to quickly write a rough draft of the paper and then go back and make any corrections that I found after proofreading. This asinine approach ultimately resulted in little or no organization and made my paper ineffective in communicating my message to the audience. One example that led the reader to the breakdown of my essay was when I wrote the description of the key lime pie I ordered at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant, “….just the way a key lime pie should be but with a dab of something else”. it was pointed out that while I discussed the key lime pie at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant, I lacked development and clarity of my idea which made it hard for the reader to ...

...clear cut message to my reader. I have now devised a plan to combat my inability to insert myself in the reader’s point of view; I now plan on taking a much more rigorous approach to proofreading. I not only will read my paper objectively but I also will reread my paper multiple times to effectively communicate my message to my reader.

This self analysis of me as a writer was not only informative but also prescriptive in offering a viable solution to overcoming my literary follies. My ultimate goal as a writer is to effectively convey my message to my audience. To be successful at achieving my goal, I must develop an organized outline for prewriting and then I must objectively and rigorously proofread my essay from the point of view of my reader. As a Wiseman once said the pen is mightier than the sword but without support or organization the pen will surely fall.

Essay About Myself as a Writer - I am not, by any means, a Shakespeare, Stephen King, or John Grisham. It would take enormous amounts of time, practice, and effort to be considered a long shot at a Pulitzer Prize. Yet, I intend to progress my writing by setting more achievable goals, building on new ideas, and developing new skills. Also, I will use the advice of instructors and peers, and draw from previous writing experiences to mold this and future writing experiences. When I sit down to write, I must do so in a clean, well-organized, and well-lit area....   [tags: Free Essay About Myself] 501 words

Essay About Myself as a Writer - I have learned a lot about myself in the last twelve weeks. I discovered so much about my writing. I learned who I really am once I came out from behind the "Official Style" that I've clung to since junior high. I have to tell you, it was very difficult for me to let go. I felt lost and uncertain. But in the process I found myself, my style, and my voice. I learned to let myself come through in my writing. I have to admit, writing became a lot more fun and interesting. When I looked back and read my first paper for this class, I laughed....   [tags: Reflective Writing Education Essays] 1272 words

My Growth as a Writer Essay - In my past writing assignments it seemed to be that we were learning everything step by step, where as in college more is expected from me as a writer. As a high school student it was quite easy to push everything off till the last moment. Those two o'clock nights were very frequent when a six-page research paper was due the next day. As a college student the requirements are more challenging and not something that can be pushed back till the very last second. It seems strange to me that starting earlier for a college paper and working twice as hard on it, receiving a lower grade on it than I would have in high school is upsetting to think about, but is so true....   [tags: How I Have Changed As A Writer] 524 words

Essay about Walt Whitman's Song of Myself - Walt Whitman's Song of Myself This paper deals with Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" in relation to Julia Kristeva's theories of abjection--my paper does not point to abjection in the text, but rather the significance of the abscence of abjection. This abscence, looming and revolting, arises from Whitman's attemt to refigure a conception of sublimity which delimits the material which can trigger the sublime moment. Whitman's democracy of the sublime is inclusive of those figures on the American landscape, their lives and voices, which are functionalized into his world....   [tags: Song of Myself Essays] 3626 words

I Am Not a Writer Essay - As a writer, I cannot call myself a writer, an author or any such label of professional word assembly and production. Once the label and definition is in place, experience declines, life becomes a mission to find interesting subjects for the means of inspiration a parenthetical/false inspiration worthy of air quotes (the previous statement would be more concise and academic if I had just used actual quotes and parenthesis instead of the rhetoric). The fault in this means of inspiring writing through experience comes from the approach; I’m lying from the beginning paragraph because I’m not experiencing a damn thing....   [tags: essays on writing] 647 words

Essay on The Role of a Writer - Before one can truly appreciate a writer’s role, they should take a quick walk down memory lane. Writers have been around as long ago as 25,000 to 30,000 b.c, painting pictures on cave walls was one way how they would expressed what others could not say. Later in 2900 b.c the Egyptians developed hieroglyphic writing. The first alphabet script appeared in Palestine at about 160 b.c, this script influenced many scripts to be created. Historic writers started with stone and clay tablets to express their thoughts....   [tags: Writing] 1447 words

College Admissions Essay: I Will be a Writer! - I Will be a Writer. Two books helped me define myself as a writer, or rather, helped me decide what kind of writer I would be. The first was the Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky. I read it when I was a freshman in high school. By then, I had already begun to wrestle with questions of good and evil which I encountered in the novel and would later work with again and again in my poems. Perhaps because I had been raised Catholic, it made the novel more resonant for me, for I firmly believed in the existence of evil, as firmly as I believed in the existence of goodness and its power to transform, although at the end of the book, I had begun to realize that goodness alone is not always enough an...   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 350 words

I Will Be a Writer Essay - I have always seen myself as an inward person who best expressed his thoughts on paper for all to see. That is why I see writing as my natural career choice; not only is it what I do best, but both my parents' first career were journalism. Reading is my first love, and while reading a book I often find myself lost in a totally different world, one that exists only in the imagination of the author and in my own mind. I know I want to be a writer, and my performance in school contests as well as in the National Council of Teachers of English competition has made me believe I have the talent to be successful....   [tags: Personal Narrative, Autobiographical Essay] 521 words

Free Personal Narratives: I Am a Writer Essay - I Am a Writer Writing for me has not always come so easily. The first essay I wrote, in French, was about my second grade teacher Mr. Bernard. I was utterly enamored by Mr. Bernard, with his slim black leather tie, pinstriped shirt, styled hair and scent of smoke and cologne. He was my hero; I even took a picture of myself dressed up like him and gave it to him. My first experience with writing was in cursive due to my upbringing in Belgium. When our family moved to the US, I was the only third grader learning how to print and properly cross his T's....   [tags: Free Personal Narrative Writing] 613 words
