Revise: My feelings towards writing have always been negative. I find writing to be very tedious and chose not to write unless it is required. I’m definitely not much a writer so the process I use for writing is very simple. First I start off by making a brainstorm on a piece of scratch paper ,usually they start with one big bubble then branch out. Next I bring together all of my ideas to make a rough draft that I write out. The first draft for me is just to throw all of my ideas onto paper into actual sentences. Last I just take my draft and type it up, and just fix my mistakes as I type.
My name is Yris Guzman and I’m a senior at Perry High School. I’ve always struggled writing essays. The things I struggle the most with is grammar, spelling, coming up with a thesis, and organizing my thoughts onto paper. I hope by the end of this semester I become a better writer. We all have strengths and weaknesses.
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.
The writing process has been a difficult process for me for many years. In high school, I did not do well I struggled with coming up with Ideas on how to start my writing. After finishing high school, I worked in the healthcare filled and I was required to chart daily activities for my clients. I found myself constantly misspelling words and writing improper grammar, so I decided to enroll in college and take Composion 1. Writing a complete sentence requires a subject and a verb and has to express a complete though. Also, brain storming was difficult for me to create, I would have my first clue then get lost on what to do next. Over time after some proper tutoring my writing improved a little. I would say writing takes time and what would
I love to write. It’s actually where I feel most creative. However, I don’t love to write. It is my belief that composing documents by typing them is unquestionably easier and more efficient. When one physically writes, they typically tire easily. For me, it’s usually at five sentences or so when my hand starts to cramp up. At that point, I begin to compromise in my writing, trying to get to my point as quickly as possible, so that I can just get it over with. I also find that I’m a planner when writing. I can have a whole paragraph mapped out in my head before even starting it. However, when I have to slowly and painstakingly compose with a pen or pencil, I lose many of the ideas I had going into it, and again, just want to get it over with.
I believe my approach with writing has drastically changed throughout this semester. I have learned to become more prepared and take my time in writing my essays rather than just jumping into them without a clue of what is to come. I grew even more than I had originally expected. I’ve been able to share some things that have happened in my past, and I have been satisfied with how I was able to write them. I’ve learned more about commas and sentence structure this year than I’ve learned in the last two years combined. Two areas that still need improvement are my grammar and my commas. I do not always pay attention to what I am saying, and I just ramble on without going back to check what I wrote. Most of the time it gets pretty crazy.
My experience when it comes to writing is limited. I’ve written peoms and I’ve written school assignments, that’s it. I would not consider my writing skills strong or even college level. I would like to fix that. I would also like to be able to write about who I am without saying who I am. I want to be able to entertain people and make them laugh while at the same time inspiring them. I hope to use my real life experiences in my writing because they are unique for someone my age but things that a lot of people can relate to. For example I ran away when I was 17 years old and couch surfed with my 21 year old boyfreind who is in stage 3 kidney failure and is type one diabetic and has several other health problems. We lived off of food stamps,
Although I’ve always seemed to enjoy writing, I never categorized myself as an outstanding writer. As I advanced through each grade is school, I noticed that while I had no problems with writing, other students seemed to despise it. The frustrating part about this was the fact that these students often obtained higher grades, even though they hated to write. This never discouraged me, however it did make me think about what it was that my writing lacked. Once I broke down my writing process, I realized that my writing often lacked structure.
It's not everyday you stumble across an interesting profile of someone you barely know. Though when you do, you start to take into account all the amazing experiences you can have together.
All the years i’ve been in school i’ve always hated writing. Writing was one of my worst subject to do it was hard and challenging. But there was one i had to learn to write cause i will need write my whole life. I always sucked at writing i could never spell or write. I would always fail on my essays and other writing things i had to do. My mom will make me write all day long until i remembered how to write and spell.
My experience as a writer although I need a lot more practice to become better at writing in general and learn how to be detailed with my information correctly. I would say my strength in writing will be knowing the subject on what I would want to write, but once I'm typing all of it down I over think and then does not make sense at all. For example, I get a topic talking about dogs and have to describe how they live, eat, etc. Like that topic is easier than doing one about a scientific method and at the end it helps because you learn a new topic about a subject you might have not known about. Overall, my strength would be knowing what to write about but my weakness is not knowing how to put it in a essay. What I have read affects how I write
My experience as a writer hasn't been overly pervasive. I was on the creative writing team throughout my middle school years and so I've learned how to think up ideas quick and connect them to flow into a story. I have received high marks on my writing papers in English as well as any other class. Being in the Speech and Debate club, I have accumulated knowledge or how speakers put their words together into a powerful and extraordinary speech. I believe that I am more prominent in personal narratives but I am just as tactical in Informative and research papers.
I seriously LOVE writing. I enjoy the thrill of creating a story and making it come to life. I don’t know why, but when I’m writing I feel safe, secure, and comfortable. It also helps me take my mind off of stressful situations. My best piece of writing is still in construction. I don’t like being assigned a writing topic like poetry or rhyme and reason. I mostly write about things I want to learn. I guess it helps if I look at it, then read it over again. I get seriously, off-the-chart UPSET if someone interrupts my free write. It’s like I turn into the hulk when I’m totally P.O.ed. Most of my phrases come from books that I read. If a character I read is being a salty person, I say what he/she says when I’m salty. When I wake up in the morning,
Throughout this semester, I have seen myself grow as a writer in my discipline and about my discipline. This semester has been a great learning experience for me and Ms. Calow has taught me many techniques that I can use throughout my college career. At first it was difficult understanding how to write in and about my discipline. After while, I was able to effectively write and organize my papers the way professionals in my discipline do. During the course of the semester my grades have gradually improved, and I believe that is because of the peer reviews from my peers and the feedback that was given by my instructor. For my revisions, I chose to revise my Category 1: Project 1, and my Category 2: Project 3. These are the papers and projects where I recognized that too much was wrong within the writing. I also chose these projects because they are the projects I made the lowest grades on. Though the project grades
