It decreases the potential for my ideas to grow and discoveries to be made. It limits me to a single statement and narrows my thoughts, preventing me from discovery. When it comes to revision, I am very lazy and I lack the drive to change my paper drastically. I do exactly what Nancy Sommers, author of the article “Revision Strategies of Student-Writers and Experienced-Writers,” says not to do; I become attached to what I have written. The thought of starting new and throwing out what I have already written ... ... middle of paper ... ...have to discover it.
I guarantee both writers themselves don’t have a yes or no answer for that question. Writing exists to fulfill all the reason above. Today the goal will be to decipher the thought processes’ and stylistic choices’ of Britt and Didion because these writers inspire me to write. (This isn’t something I say often) Both have a unique approach to putting together a puzzle. Thinking…Thinking…And more thinking…This is what writing takes.
Death does not set someone free. When you die you are not free, but dead and now have no means of trying to fix the problem. Rebellion is more than accepting the absurd, it's coming to terms with it and creating a way to deal with it. It seems to be unfair that humans should desire meaning when none is given to us no matter how much we ask. It's looked upon wrongly to create a false meaning for ideas and objects when we can't be for sure that it is a correct response.
Although a personal statement is supposed to be mine, in the back of my head, I was thinking that an admission officer would look at this sheet of paper I had written and base my admission on it. Then I felt that although this was supposed to be my story, it was not really what I wanted to say because the purpose was to please someone else. At a certain point, all creativity was gone and my only goal was to have a perfect personal statement. The need to have a perfect personal statement did not allow me to write an essay that was truly me. I already had my mind set that I was going to write what I thought the reader wanted to hear instead of what I truly wanted.
For a persuasive essay should you lead with a reliable fact, a detailed definition, or should you lead with a story? I guess that 's my issue on the hook. I’m not sure what is going to be most effective or intriguing for the reader to want to keep going. Having to choose which is... ... middle of paper ... ...which is why I put so much pressure on myself to get it right. My biggest downfall is I put my writing down and just feel it’s never good enough.
Writing is an art that can only be learned through repetition and practice, much like anything else a person must fail to succeed and learn from their mistakes. In writing, this means creating a first draft, reading it and understanding what was done wrong and rewriting until satisfied. You must teach them that any writing that they feel could be made better, they should never be content with. That writing, reading and rewriting what they do not find satisfactory. Can be the simplest and most effective method to improving their own writing, without the need for peer evaluation.
I decided then that, as simple and perhaps insignificant as my personal problems with the topic were, I needed to address them in some way. Addressing my problems with the assignment would make me take time to think critically about my dilemma and find the answers that could help me become more motivated with the topic[d3] . I felt it was the only way I could even begin my exploratory essay without pulling all my hair out. Of course I didn’t have the answer to my initial question yet – What’s the purpose behind writing about writing? As I could not find the answer in a textbook or get a straight answer about it from Mr.
Then I realized, It isn’t that I don’t have motivation. I can get motivated and do anything. It’s that I just don’t like writing and I procrastinate. I try and put it off so I don’t have to do it. So knowing that procrastination was the real problem, I continued writing but, also forced myself to begin on this essay.
I would not even know the format that would be required to make a bibliography or how to cite in a research paper because I thought papers like these were difficult and complicated to understand me. I believed most of these kinds of writing were just a paper that only gave information and didn 't compare it to the writer and his thoughts. These were the toughest challenges that I faced to my full understanding of writing and that it was more than what it seemed like. It was necessary for me to become more familiar with better techniques and know all the secrets they carry to allow myself to grow and get a better idea how writing could be in my life. While I was in the 7th grade my English teacher told me I was failing his assignments because I was still trying to learn and gain more experience writing in a more sophisticated way which would freshen up my essays and I would only get much better through practices and
Instead I should have been explaining why I thought writing did not need rules and why my past teachers might have thought that we needed these rules that they were telling us about. Also my quotes I used of Anzaldua did not really do my paper any justice, they were just kind of there. They did not make the connection I was hoping for, or the connection I was trying to make. I knew in my head what I wanted to say, but did not know how to explain it in words. But never fear my writing got better!
