I have always struggled with my writing assignments. If I had the option not to write I would take that option with no hesitation. I truly dreaded it, when we have to type essays. Now, I have been into two English classes where I have felt a little more comfortable in being able to write something without being so embarrassed or ashamed in what I’m about to turn it. I still feel horrible about my spelling and grammar.
I don’t really like writing because whenever my teacher tells me to write about something I start to get confused on what to say then I start to get mad at myself and start to cry.The best thing I have ever written is when I had to wrote about legos, it was a nine pages and alot idioms and more.
I had always assumed that my legs were strong and that I had decent muscle control, however, this thought was proven wrong at the beginning of my junior year in high school due to a detrimental injury. It was the first game of fall league for basketball, and within the first five minutes I had succumbed to an injury. Tearing my ACL and Meniscus has taught me to continue improving on my strength, not let this one injury keep me down, and to keep a positive mindset.
I, Deputy Gough received a call reference a white Ford truck driving in the Gamester trailer court all over the roadway. Upon my arrival I spoke with David Vore and Jennifer Vore. Jennifer Stated that Randy was the driver of the white Ford truck that said, “All Good Construction.” David and Jennifer both stated that they saw the truck drive through the yard hitting a slow child at play sign and the stop sign.
The second day of my practice I felt that I had made some progress towards my goals of improving my time management and getting my documenting done earlier and providing relevant healing initiatives for my client.
Throughout the first semester, I already feel as though I have learned multiple skills that push my writing to a higher level. I have never worked with “They Say, I Say” before, and all of the readings that we have done so far associated with that book added new aspects to my writing than ever before. In particular, I have noticed a large change in my ability to introduce and summarize a piece of writing that I am analyzing before adding my own opinion or take on a subject. Instead of consistently summarizing points of the piece throughout my writing, I improved upon my skills and can now effectively and concisely summarize the piece before introducing any of my own opinions. Additionally, the class discussion that we had about the purpose of a concluding paragraph, in my opinion, helped improve my skills in answering the question: so what?
My writing style throughout junior year has changed drastically. With each essay my motivation to write better went down. I started to do the bare minimum with each essay. I did not do a rough draft or double check any of my work. My first essay I wanted to do a decent job so I can start the year off with a good start. I wrote very clearly and did what the prompt said. After that essay I did not care so much about what I had to do to get an A again. Yes, this is very irresponsible of me, but as the year went on I lost my drive to do better. I think as a writer I have gotten worse, because I did not write to my full potential.
You know that moment when you’re trying to reach the toilet paper but can't quite, then fall and kill yourself on a pumpkin? Yeah I know that feeling… it’s not good. It all started one very normalish day at 1065 Fitzgerald Ave.
My writing style, in my opinion, is light-hearted and creative. I don't particularly like bland papers, regardless of the topic, so I tend to add in a bit of humor, if possible, and maybe even a bit of interesting facts. I always tend to wonder if someone else would understand my paper. I enjoy being able to put in a nice flow to my paper so that I'm not going from one topic directly to another. In all honesty, I enjoy other writing styles such as being objective, realistic, complex, and dramatic. My favorite that I try to go for, however, is a light-hearted style because I can have a bit of fun with it while following the designated guidelines.
I think that my writing style leans well more on the creative and entertaining side than the informative side of the spectrum. This is reflected on some of the titles I have come up with for all of my papers and use of wordplay in a lot of passages. That being said, it was quite a struggle to stop using clever language and focus solely on the content of the paper. Even if that did improve over the course of the semester, I still feel like that style of writing didn’t leave me, nor will it. I can always prevent myself from using metaphors and the likes in research papers, but I will still have those metaphors and analogies in me to use for creative purposes, where I normally steer my writing towards.
Three sentences. That was all that my kindergarten teacher required me to write. “Class, your homework is to write at least three sentences about something that you enjoy,” she said, as she handed each of us a writing journal. Every night, the writing topic she assigned would change. Later on in the school year, my classmates and I would make up our own topics. We would use our imaginations to write whatever pleased us. I fell deeper and deeper in love with writing. Throughout elementary school, I read many different books. Each book had a different author with a different writing style for me to enjoy. I, too, developed my own writing style. By junior high, I had won a few writing awards, and I had written some short stories that I shared with my friends. Even as a freshman in high school, I still enjoy writing.
For my creative project, I did a photographic narrative. I had a hard time trying to decide what I was going to take pictures of, that would tell a story. After awhile, I finally decided to make my photographic narrative over the stages of ones (me) life. Once I decided on a topic, it was just a matter of figuring out what my pictures would consist of. I wanted to get the point across that my pictures were telling a story of some one’s life in a sweet but simple way. After choosing a topic for my narrative, I was trying to think of what would be an easy way to convey my message though photographs. I decided to take pictures of things that I considered to be important stages of one’s life. A lot of planning went into my photos, I took about
Many events occur on the daily, especially in my life--great, shocking, terrible, exciting, etc. Some are able to make it into my creative works like writing. I am a ninth grade student and writer at Milpitas High School. This is my first year in high school, and I am already overwhelmed with the workload which includes numerous group projects, essays and this brochure that was assigned to ensure that I complete my project-based assignment. Prior to this project, my class and I read The House on Mango Street written by Sandra Cisneros which caused us to focus on style. As a result, in order to showcase my own style, I wrote four different, expressive writing to display my talents. The first writing was a poem written based on a photograph that
There are many steps that can be taken so I can further improve my paragraph writing. The first improvement is choosing the most beneficial quotation to prove my point. In this paragraph, I had multiple options for quotations and I had a difficult time choosing which quote to integrate into the paragraph. In most cases,the quotations that I picked were not the most beneficial to support the theme. This was exhibited with the quotation that I used to portray the feeling created by the description of the setting. I used, “...a certain untidiness creeps in; a fragment of glass, a chocolate bar wrapper, a plastic horse, and cracked sidewalks with ridges of stiff grass.” as the description of imagery in the setting. Reflecting back on the paragraph, I
Main events… how do you sum up an entire life into main events? This is a daunting task. When I was four, I started reading the newspaper over my mom’s shoulder. Family folklore is that I read a murder story aloud and shocked everyone. My mom didn’t read the paper with me any more after that. Before Kindergarten, I would write stories with my mom… she would write the words down for me, and I would illustrate them. She may still have them, I’m not sure. I wish I could ask her, but we haven’t talked in years. I always saw myself as a creative person, mostly because my mother pushed me to express myself in creative ways. She also always told stories about how the women in my family have always been artists.
