Thanks to this writing process, my work has improved in a very tremendous way because I have been able to reflect on my work before and after I turn it in for a grade. The blogs have given me a sense of guidance through my writing process strategies. Another strategy of mine that has improved is my ability to conduct extensive research, during WP2 which was our collaborative writing piece, I was taught how to conduct credible research to help me draft for my topic. The research I have conducted during this course has been extremely beneficial to me because I now know what credible sources are to ensure that my research is trustworthy. I have learned where to find the best research through the use of different databases.
I have not only learned how to write and express myself more effectively, by organizing my critical thoughts, but most importantly I have learned that review and revision is an essential part of the writing process. This process how allowed me to grow to become a better writer. The skills I have acquired can be used for future coursework and beyond.
Mistakes that I did gave me a reason to improve myself for the next level of writing. Despite all of the good progress I made by taking this class, I still have to make more improvements to make myself a better writer. One of the improvements that I have to do is my grammar skills. Improving my grammar skills a bit more would make my essay easier for the readers to understand. Constructing a better sentence is also one of the things I should work on.
Before I came to English 101 I was more of a raw writer than most people. Although I would write my papers filled with great content, I would also have many problems with my grammer and organization. Throughout my time in this class I have developed and trained multiple areas of my writing. Some of the areas that I have improved the most have been grammer, organization, and MLA format. These areas have lead to an evolution in my writing that has given me a new level of understanding in English.
Whether a misspelled word, use of incorrect pronunciation or simply poor sentence structure, is the problem, each time I read my essay I find something that needs improvement. Examining the sentence structure, word choice and parallelism throughout an essay is imperative. Through my growth as a writer I predict my patience will mature as well. With persistence, my goal for my future writing is that the number of revisions will increase with every essay I write, even if I find another review unnecessary at the time. By multiple drafts and revisions, achieving an immaculate essay, becomes
I was so fed up that I just wrote without over thinking and the time flew by so fast. I was done with the essay that took me forever to write. I had finished it in the course of two
In Composition one I learned that my strengths include knowing the variety of my audience, being descriptive with my writing, understanding grammar and mechanics, and arguing both sides of a story. I found that my weaknesses are topic sentences, transitioning, guiding my audience, and using too much research. Though I have plenty of things that could some improvement, this semester in composition one I many triumphs. On the first day when Mrs. Garth told us we had to write a paper in just two days my heart sank. I knew I was not a good writer, so I thought I was going to fail my first assignment.
Therefore, I am aware that I have to provide my audience with a good introduction. Writing for an audience with a specific purpose depending on the type of essay has helped me improve my writing a lot.

My current strengths are coming up with good store of grammar knowledge and also a wider vocabulary, but my weaknesses are still punctuation and sometimes spelling. I feel that I need to work harder on these skills.
I think that they will be very helpful to me, regardless of what I am trying to accomplish. I feel that I am much better now, in persuading someone through my writings; which would definitely come in handy during my career. The responsibility I have gained during this experience is incredible and has taught me to be a much more organized person. I was faced with deadlines, rules and assignments that I could not work around. I found that all of these responsibilities have made me realize that I could definitely take the next step forward in my academic career.
In my writing I have seen large amounts of growth, I have learned how to better introduce all my sources as well as how to flow my ideas, as well as how unnecessary the five-paragraph essay is. Wring has become easier for me due to the fact that I now I feel understand how to write. I understand that there must be a “they say” and an “I say” in my writing. There has to be an equal balance to everything I write. For example I cannot just write a piece all about my opinions as well how, I cannot just write a piece about what others are saying without explaining the purpose of it all.
