I 've always liked writing. Even before I knew how to write I would make up stories and pretend to write them down. Each year in high school I 've written a multitude of essays on varying topics. I have selected three of these writings from each of my years in high school to examine as part of this rhetorical analysis of my writing history. As I 've grown older, my writing style has changed and I 've learned more about the world and developed my own personal writing voice more and more.
Becoming of older age, I began to understand that it’s perfectly fine to be imperfect. The extraordinary person I believed I would never become started off by committing faults and mistakes. Despite the fact that I was treated differently it pushed me toward understanding that I am enough. No matter what obstacles or battles I come across I’ve convinced myself to ignore the negativity surrounding me and converting it to positivity.
An individual’s growth is measured by the overcoming of their adversity only if they continue to practice positive actions on a regular basis that block out their adversity. When one overcomes their affliction, true progress starts when they follow up by doing everything in their power to make sure positivity plays a key role in their life at all times. Coming from someone that has overcome her own adversity, it is very much so a challenge to try and remain in a positive state of mind. It’s so simple to sit back and be saddened by our downfalls, but when we recognize the upsides to certain unfortunate situations we find true development within ourselves. I’ve learned that in order to grow after overcoming adversity within oneself, it is important
My views on writing haven’t changed and I continue to dislike writing. I’ve always hated sitting down and just writing a paper I don’t care about. Writing has always seemed pointless to me because I think that I will never write papers at
When I was nine years old, I was forced to learn the basics of mediation between an addict and a victim of abuse. I think about the paths I could have taken, had I not met the right people. The culture clichés I could have so easily followed had I chosen to conform rather than create an opportunity for myself. Through the use of persuasive communication, I was able to guide my father away from violence. I remember having trouble my early years of school as I soon became my father’s drinking partner. He needed someone to talk to at late hours of the night and I was always available. I would like to say that I am motivated by the positivity in my life, but that would be a lie. In return I do believe it that the negativity I experienced early on and difficulties I faced in childhood that helped shape my focus as I experimented with different careers and fields of study.
Although I stopped writing I began to express myself talking. I took a public speaking class that had about twelve people, meaning we all had to share. It showed me that you’re only wrong if you don’t say anything. Although we think that because we might be wrong its better not to say anything because we don’t want to get laughed at. That’s one of the things with our society, we are so quick to say someone is wrong. We all act on impact one of the reasons why there are so many broken families and hearts.
Like most people, writing has made an impact on my life. I didn’t notice it right away, but once I did it changed my life forever. I consider myself to be a fairly decent writer and I would say it was the only thing that kept me going. I love writing that involves thinking and real emotion. Writing journals and letters have helped me get through a lot in my life and that is really something I will never forget.
Being a positive and sincere person is a constant work-in-progress and teaching myself this again and again after a seemingly endless battle, I became the person that I needed when I was younger. When I breathed, I hoped. I turned my anger into an energy, and my melancholy into a promise; a promise to myself to give back to this world more than what it’s already given me.
Writing is one of the most important skills that I have learned throughout my years in school. I have learned that no matter how much I love or hate it, writing is a necessity; I might as well try to be good at it. Writing has been in my life for many years. There are many types of writing, educational writing and personal writing are two that I will mention in this essay. I have learned how to allow writing to help me in my daily life. When I began writing I hated it, however, I have learned the many uses of it, and it has become a huge part of my life.
Peer reviewing can sometimes be a little frightening because no one wants to be criticized and sometimes you do not know if the person will review your paper. However, peer review is extremely helpful because you have different perspective on your essay. Through peer reviewing, I learn that getting feedback from another student is very helpful in shaping my paper to be better. I also learn that constructive criticism definitely helps improve my writing. Furthermore, a particular piece of feedback that I found most useful is the other student suggesting ideas to expand my essay and helping with the organization in order to improve the flow and clarity. The most useful feedback I gave to another student is telling them the main points I have
Be that as it may, the daunting lifestyle of a writer continued to grasp my attention. Ultimately I decided that passion and devotion for the things that I do was vital to my future, and helped me to eliminate any uncertainty previously possessed. Currently this decision may seem fairly insignificant, just as Frost’s choice to stray from the well-worn path, but has already begun to affect my life. Although I
