Another weakness I had was the run on and comma splice errors. I had this problem becau... ... middle of paper ... ...something I didn’t have trouble with but if I would have had trouble I would’ve learned in the lesson we had. I was never a person that liked to write essays. This semester I really enjoyed writing those essays and specially because I was learning new things while writing them. Some things I could do to improve my essay writing are not to wait till the last three or four days before I turn my essay in to start doing it.
I was not able to go over with the essay so I had a lot of mistakes in sentence structure. One thing I would like to improve is that some of my sentences are too wordy including the thesis and tøpic sentence. On the other hand, I still have done a fine job on the thesis development and providing support into it. Those two have worked well since the thesis and its evidence connect to each other which made my essay a well- constructed one. Furthermore, the practice in class
My goals are to come out of English 100 and be able to write any kind of memo, document, or resume; because I know someday every one of these writing projects will become useful. I did not come here to get average grades; I came here to get the best grades possible. Even if some of my work does not show the best qualities sometimes, I am still trying my hardest. Other goals I have deal with this English class. I am hoping to learn from you how to write memos, which I am doing now, and also learn to write to others possibly for jobs or something else of importance.
This essay taught me that even though I was learning a lot from this course, that there was still room to improve. Likewise, I ended up with the assumption I had done great on this essay since I wrote about a topic I enjoyed, makeup. I was proven wrong. The evaluation paper called for evaluating and expanding on the quotes you had provided in your paper, something I wasn’t as familiar with until this class. I didn 't do so well on this particular essay but I had the opportunity to learn from my mistakes.
This essay will help analyze my experience throughout the entire journey. It will help understand how I became the writer I am today. Over the last several weeks, I have grown into a great writer that I did not see myself as. The first essay given in this course was about our whole composing process. This essay was hard to write about and I remember having several grammar mistakes.
I had previously learned and used the writing process and I have come to find it very useful, especially this semester in EN101. It has helped me because I tend to ramble in my writing when I am passionate about a topic; furthermore, the writing process helps me organize my thoughts and formulate my essay before I actually write it. Another tip that was learned in EN101 is to always do edits and revisions. Something that I have learned about myself as a writer is that when I have a lot to say on a subject, I tend to go overboard to the point where my essay does not make sense. To fix that, I always have to reread what my essay says and make sure that the reader will understand it.
Even though I have improved, I still have weaknesses that I would hope to improve on in EN 102. However, overall this course not only improved my writing skills but my social awareness. The biggest improvement I have made in this course would be my passion to write again. Prior to this class, writing was a hobby that I would do as a last resort. I was intrigued with it, however, it was not passion.
So I entered this class knowing that I could write well, but could learn to write better. One of the ways I improved upon my writing was to be more careful about mechanics. This is always a tricky part since English is such a complex language. I have never been the best speller, so I am always trying to improve upon my spelling. I was very conscientious to not rely on spell checkers as I have done in the past.
I have never been the type of student that does not get her work done, whether it be an essay for English or a workbook page for Geometry. I work diligently in all my classes and aim to learn as much as I can from every assignment. Since English is not my best subject, I work twice as hard to improve every day and bring out the best writer in me. My determination is what drove me to enhance my weaknesses and polish my strengths. My journey through high school as a writer has been quite fruitful.
I currently can feel that writing is a quite enjoyable process, and I like delivering my ideas to other people by writing, too. I am really proud that I have enhanced my pre-writing skills, writing structure and revising skills and have learned how to write an effective thesis statement and how to deal with rhetorical analysis. However, I still have lots of deficiencies in my articles, such as grammar problem and the lack of logical transition. In the past, I used to start writing an essay without writing an outline. I even did not brainstorm before I began to write.
