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.
