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.
My writing process hasn’t “evolved as result of this course”, this course has given me much needed practice writing but my process is unchanged. I list, I write, I reread, then I rewrite, thats an extremely shortened version of my process. I learned about other peoples writing processes but didn’t incorporate any of these ideas or steps into my own because my process works, “why fix whats not broken?” is what my grandfather always says.
There are many different types of events that shape who we are as writers and how we view literacy. Reading and writing is viewed as a chore among a number of people because of bad experiences they had when they were first starting to read and write. In my experience reading and writing has always been something to rejoice, not renounce, and that is because I have had positive memories about them.
I think good books written by great writers. In a book is has many paragraph if every paragraphs are correct and interesting a book will be interesting. I am freshman from English for international communication. More or less, I Should be spoken and written English as well. In first semester I studied about grammar. I think grammar is very difficult for me. This subject has details about tense, part of speech, Phrases and sentence. I do not understand how to write correct sentence. I think grammar is the most difficult subject but in second semester I have writing class this subject is more difficult than grammar. Mrs.Thanida is my lecturer in writing class. She is very lovely and friendly. In class she has beautiful smile. I think she look like Barbie
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.
I feel like I have really gotten a better understanding on what areas of my writing have gotten better and which still need a little more work. One thing I feel I have gotten better at is how to write a paragraph better. I feel that the way I write my paragraphs is more organized and not all over the place. Another thing I feel I have improved is how to write down my ideas before I start to actually write my paper. One last thing I feel I now understand better is how to proof-read a paper. I now know more about what type of mistakes to look for in my paper and in other people’s papers I might read. Some of the things that helped me in getting better in writing where things i learned in class and things in my textbook. In class we went over
“ I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind” -Patrick Dennis. This is my writing process beginning with a blank piece of paper and the rest is my thoughts. What I think, I write down, no planning behind it, no rough draft, just what comes to me, I write. I am a procrastinator, tough I don’t believe that affects my writing skills. I believe my efforts and thoughts and what I think is good enough should be good enough to be the best. I do not having any pre-writing activities I do to prepare me when writing a paper, only my cognitive ideas and a quiet area.
My experience as a writer began at a young age. I was subjected to writing book reports throughout my elementary years. I saw nothing good in them. I was a free-spirited child and
My love for writing started early. My parents will bring me and my brother to the nearby library to borrow books every weekend to encourage good reading habits in us. Due to the frequent visits to the library, I literally fell in love with reading. With imagination and creativity, writing bring me to a whole new world, a whole new perspective and on a journey of self-discovery. I feel that writing is like a medium for me to express myself and I really enjoyed writing so I believe that NP’s Diploma in Mass Communication (MCM) can provide opportunities for me to explore and develop my talents. I also wrote a lot of book reviews in primary school which is a homework I always looked forward to because I like to read and write. I have written a
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.
