Writing is a process I’ve grown to despise. Ever since grade school, I’ve had problems trying to express my ideas on paper. My writing process involves thinking about what’s being asked and trying to reflect my thoughts the best way I can on paper, but my thoughts don’t always come out as clear as I want them to be sometimes leaving a question not fully answered. My writing process isn’t a consistent set in stone process, but since being in ENC 1101 I always follow some of the same parameters such as revising my drafts, grammar usage and considering context and audience. According to Donald M. Murray in The Makers Eye: Revising Your Own Manuscripts “A piece of writing is never finished”.
Composing has always been one of my weakest strengths, because I find it to be a challenging process to put my thoughts into writing. I struggle with expressing my ideas in a way that make it difficult for others to understand the big picture inside my head. During my writing process, I usually find myself spending a couple of hours on a paragraph, just to have it be erase and rephrased in a different way, repeatedly. This is all because I feel like it doesn’t make sense and people wouldn’t be able to understand the concept of my writing. Despite struggling to put my thoughts into writing, this is a skill that I am determine to improve and to become a better writer over time.
Since, I do not feel that I have many strengths, let's move on to my weaknesses. Writing deficiencies, I have plenty. My biggest problem is figuring out how to write what I am thinking.

I have made a lot of progress in my writing in English 2100T class. I still have many problems that I should not have as I am a college student. I try my best to finish every writing assignment I have, and try to remember those mistakes I made before in order to prove my writing skills. However, I still make some mistakes that I made before.

I feel when assigned an essay I freak out on how to make it seem smart enough and clean it up enough to at least a “B” essay because I know getting that “A” is a stretch. The most frustrating aspects of writing for me are writing the hook, the thesis statement, and being my own worst critic. Getting the reader 's attention is not as easy as I thought. In the past, I never put much into the hook. I really just thought there are other aspects that are more important, but in the back of my head I was never happy with just an okay opening.
Having trouble writing and punctuating doesn 't make it any easier, is it an excuse to turn in a crappy essay? No of course not I just have to work a little harder than those who don 't have trouble writing. No one is a perfect writer. Even authors makes mistakes.

I was intrigued with it, however, it was not passion. For years I believed my writing was not good enough because I could not properly express my thought process in a manor of which others could comprehend; I believed my writing was very weak. In the beginning of this class, the reason I was late for many papers is because I did not want to hand an assignment that demonstrate my lack of writing abilities. However, as the class progressed and I continued to complete the assignments, the more confident I became in my writing. Moreover, the way I have grown as a writer is becoming more confident within the words I wrote.
I dislike being told what to do, only for creative proposes because how can I be creative if I have a certain criteria that I need to fill. Because of my lazy skills, the thing that I need to work on is to put more energy and work on to my essay.
