The way my writing process is formatted is probably quite similar to mostly every other student, because we may have learned the same process on how to develop and structure our writing assignments. The process of me developing any of my writing assignments is broken down piece by piece into different parts.
Frequently, in a classroom setting, when a teacher or professor mentions a writing assignment, the students will usually groan and moan. There are a few students that will actually rejoice silently that there is a paper being assigned. I am not one of those students. Papers aren’t the most fun thing to do, unless you love to write. However, I can recall a time where I composed an essay that I was quite proud of and enjoyed writing.
Is it perfect? No. Does it have to be? No. Author and illustrator Marjane Satrapi will agree. “I am very much a fan of imperfection, actually” (Root 81). She is a well-known graphic novelist. I admire Satrapi. Satrapi has written many graphic novels, but she is most known for Persepolis. She and I as writers have many similarities even though I am not a graphic novelist. We begin our process in a trance like state that allows ones’ mind to effortlessly float on paper. We enjoy lots of brainstorming and believe in the power of visuals. I do not use illustrations in my creative work like she does. Instead I use words to create imagery in one’s mind. I am an artist of sorts, and enjoy many mediums of expression. I believe that though I do not use visuals, my creative ability is clearly illustrated just as the ink on this paper. It is black and white, or so you think.
So far this year, I felt pretty satisfied with my progress this semester. I feel like I am slowly adapting to the new way papers and assignments are handled. All my college work depends solely on me now. No one is going to baby me anymore and whether I succeed or fail depends on how much effort I put into something. For the first time in my life I wrote a paper. Not just a five paragraph essay but actual pages, which is extremely challenging. It’s also been my first time studying for five hours straight so I can pass an actual test. I didn’t know I possessed this level of dedication, it’s probably because it isn’t free.
“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”. This quote is said by a famous fashion stylist Rachel Joe. As she said, people express their style not only through speaking, but also through actions, appearance or even writing. Especially in writing, even though the authors write in the same language with the same purpose, they tend to have different formats and styles. In a sports news article I read, I found a unique style of writing that intrigued me. The article was “Consider these teams officially tortured” written by Bill Simmons from ESPN.
I have to be honest it is hard to decide what was my favorite assignment as I really do not like writing. I did like learning more about Grit, fixed mindset and growth mindset. I have always tried to teach my own children about Grit and that they could learn anything they wanted and as much as they wanted. I never knew that this was such a rare thing in the world to teach your child. I thought it was something that most parents taught their children.
When writing an essay everyone has some sort of process whether it be completely throughout breakdown or a couple simple steps. My process is somewhat simple, I list all the required information needed in the essay and make a check list with it, then i start writing checking off items on the
My writing process in highschool shows almost every aspect of an novice writer. I wrote at my own pleasure, and only choose obvious arguments that I won’t even believe in. It was almost as if I just wrote words down just to fill up the paper. I would give very little consideration of the reader because everything made senses in my head. As result, my writing lack organization and even clarity. The lack of clarity in my writing was due to my inattention to proofread my work before allowing the reader to read it. Honestly, my writing process in high school left me directionless.
Everyone has a goal. Whether it’s to get every question right on the test or as small as going to bed at an earlier time. Like most, I have goals that I want to accomplish. By the end of the first trimester I want to complete my goals to give myself a better future. The goals I plan to achieve are to become a better writer, learn more about computers, and to talk more.
I’ve always had problems with my writing and I’m still having them. I can do any exercise in math but when it comes to write something my mind goes blank. With this course I can easily notice that my writing skills have improved. I took ENG 081 before this class and the teacher taught me completely different about some material we covered in this course.
I am not the kind of person who talks or writes much. Putting my thoughts on papers is something I have always struggled with doing. I believe this class will help me improve on transferring my thoughts to paper, in an organized fashion. I look forward to becoming a better writer because of this class.
I write to exist in a place where the grass is pink, the sky is lavender and anything is possible
I am Kazuki Nakanishi and I have two goals in this level. my first writing goal in this level is using an adjective and an adverb as much as I can in my writing paper. I learned how to write the nice essay from level 5, so I would like to focus on of constructing a sentence. I feel that I tend to use easy noun and verb in everyday conversation compared with the native speaker, and I need to add more information to explain something clearly using adjective and adverb. It is obvious that writing skill directly connects to speaking skill, so this goal can be my biggest goal in level 10.
I was shaking not with fear or excitement There were a million butterflies in my stomach i barely worked on it and i had to present. We had about 2 weeks to complete though i completely forgot about it i hate presenting anyways but it was my turn up. In 4th grade i started to hate writing because we had to present everything so i barely worked on it i was a straight c student. Writing is something to jot down notes or ideas out of my head. Writing was something to do when i’m bored just to do something or if i have to go to bed i’ll just write or read instead.
