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.
This class taught me that writing is easier when I organize my thoughts and write an outline before writing. In addition, my usage of commas, conjunctions, and concessive words improved, which helped me convey my ideas easier for the reader. Lastly, this class taught me to proofread and edit before submitting my paper that helped me improve my grades. This class was challenging for me, but it made my writing skills better. Mistakes that I did gave me a reason to improve myself for the next level of writing.
Another type of style that I loved to write with was comparison. I liked writing comparison papers because it gave you not only one subject to write about but two, which would make it easier to come up with information to write about. Logos, Pathos and Ethos are always throughout my essays and I have always tried to put at least one of two in every paragraph I write in my papers. When writing for specific purposes it always helps to pick certain rhetorical styles that go along with your subject. When I would decide to write about something personal I would make sure to use Pathos to get the hearts of my readers.
The writers of these essays use diction, as all writers should, as their tool to evoke the intended reactions from their audience. This helps to make a piece of writing good.

Collecting data for any essay is very important. It helps you analyze traits, gives evidence or explains a situation, person or a thing. For this particular essay I have chosen argumentative essay to explain the improvement to my writing process because that is an essay I had put lot of time in. Moreover, it was something I was a little confident about because when I read it, it had a weightage of knowledge. While collecting data, I was very conscious about the source and bookmarked them for later use.

As a result I believe that the progress I have made in my writing during the course of English 1B has changed my negative views of writing. As silly as it may sound to say that my fears about writing papers have been defeated, they have. Whether they are short reviews or extensive research papers, I have become more comfortable in writing. 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.
The score was a somewhat higher, but not by a large margin. This was a sign to me that I still have a lot of room for improvement, and I am far from being a great writer. So I need to keep working against the struggle. One of the biggest challenges I faced was truly understanding what it was to rhetorically analyze an article. The easy part was reading it, writing a summary, and even choosing the rhetorical choices the author used.
I feel it is more organized and the content is more concentrated on the topic. I enjoyed writing my definition essay and the reminiscence essays because of this. Also I learned that no challenge is impossible from writing my informational and portrait of a writer essays. Even though I found each very difficult, I soon found out it just takes practice. I have been introduced to different writing styles of writing and endured a lot of criticism, as well as positive feedback.
If adequate articles and reliable websites are utilized to formulate opinions on an essay prompt, when cited properly, it is more likely for the essay to be effective. Reliable articles and websites should be analyzed very carefully to absorb only information that relates to the topic and the writers opinion. Proof reading and formatting are also critical to a writing sample because they affect how the author’s main claim is explained.

In supporting my thesis with evidence, I am able to show how strongly I feel about my topic while keeping my points clear with the evidence I choose to provide. I discovered the benefits that came along with this step when I was writing about short essays throughout this course. Reading these essays and then responding to them with a strong tone along with not getting carried away from my main points was definitely a challenge. Although by incorporating another stage of the writing process I was able to revise and edit all the unnecessary parts where my tone became a little too strong. I find a strong tone necessary when i 'm writing, I think it puts more of myself into my essays because i 'm diving below the surface to really internalize things in order to create a stronger tone.
