My writing experience started in high school. I was part of the high school yearbook. I was business editor as a freshman up to being the editor my senior year. I also participated on the newspaper staff. I had some experience in college, but I did not finish college. I then did not have any more experience until I started work as a leader at Nisco. I finally started college classes again.
My writing experiences have been minimal. So far I have only learned the basics of writing, like forming sentences and forming sentences to put into paragraphs. I can tell that my writing has improved throughout the years. I hope to improve in writing essays, paragraphs, stories, and speeches so that I have no errors with editing and creating the final product. I predict that I will be a well rounded writer when I graduate from Newman University.
During this spring semester, I have grown in many ways as a writer, and a student. I have started to realize, and accept the flaws that I have created in my writing. In the past, I never looked into my writings and saw my problems, and if I did, I did not accept that they were problems. In my writing pieces in the past, I was very hard-headed about what I thought was correct versus what was actually correct. I have also become More familiar with different formatting options on Microsoft Word to create a more professional piece or writing. However, figuring out all the parts of writing and making them work together is the most difficult part of writing.
Writing is a key in everyday life, whether it is going unrecognized or not communication is largely dependent on writing rater then face to face relations. Growing up writing an essay or a story wasn’t always as important as sending that one text out to a friend. Many times instead of working on an assignment people tend to text, and write on social media instead. Although by doing this in the end, you are still writing, although for some it doesn’t count as that text maybe something they are passionate about unlike their assignment. The concept of writing then goes unacknowledged and isn’t looked at as a fun activity for many. This tends to happen after submitting assignments and not receiving the grade you may
My writing has improved greatly over the years. Now, I am able to write much longer papers, my writing is more detailed, my writing is straight, I am able to write in different styles, and my letters aren't shaped weirdly anymore. All and all, my writing has improved a good amount. I still do not enjoy writing that much. I am really enjoying math and science right now. The writing that I do like, is writing about a subject that I choose with no guidelines. My past writing pieces that I have done, have been the personal narrative (in 6th grade), and the researched based writing project (also in 6th grade). Both of those projects I did not enjoy that much, because we worked on those two projects for a long time. Even thought I do not enjoy writing
Al, Alde, de, shon, deshon, and Al’Deshon my name takes on many forms. Kind of like my writing in a sense. I have never been a strong writing also being the reason, I took this class first semester I think. If I get it out of the way maybe I’ll have an easier chance of reaching the finish line happening to be graduation.
My writing process has drastically changed in the last few months. I am at a point where I still make mistakes, but the fear is gone. Currently coming out of WAC101. The most important thing I have taken away was to write often and then rewrite. This has been extremely beneficial in helping my comfort level, approach, and process to writing. Before I started that class I had a fear to write with constantly questioning every sentence I jotted down, asking myself is it good enough? What will someone say about that? Now, I feel I have the ability to write to a few different audiences with structure and substance. Not saying I am an amazing writer now because I am still far from good.
Throughout my writing process there are a various amount of steps I do to perfect it. Generally coming up with the idea is the most difficult part of any writing, even now, it is difficult to get started with the essay. Once I dive in though, it gets quite easier. Procrastination is a problem that i can not seem to shake. I will attempt to sit down, but as soon as the littlest thing pops up, I will usually be distracted and lose my train of thought. I attempt to run through the whole essay in my head before I start just to get a proper idea of how it will be structured.
When there was nothing else for me to do and my supervisor was on the phone, I began doing some homework until she gave me the next task. My supervisor was very rude and told me to closed down what I was doing, not caring that I was in the middle of a quiz. She scolded me as if I was her child and told me I was not allowed to do my homework there no matter if everything else was done and she was on the phone. And I asked her if I was supposed to sit there and do nothing until you get off the phone and she never answered. I told her I did not mean to disrespect her in any way by doing my homework there but I made sure that everything else was done before doing so. I stated that I was not sure how long she would be on the phone because the last
I am a perfectionist; always have been, always will be. Whether I want it to or not, that applies to every aspect of my life; including my writing. It is almost impossible for me to sit down and work on an essay or read a book without having flashbacks to countless lectures, posters, and reminders. The correctness of my writing and all of its components are very important to me. Specifically, I like to put in extra effort on my transitions, word choice, fluency, and overall likeability… Basically all of the things you see on classroom posters from kindergarten on. As I progress throughout my education I have come to realize that writing gets more complex as the years go on, but the same rules stay in place. No ‘run ons,’no using your introduction
“But grandma i've already read it twice!” i groaned in protest, i had just read the same sentence for the third time. My five year old self was more concerned about the bugs outside and flowers i could pick. However my grandma was not, every time i visited we would sit in the living room me right next to her and go page by page of the book Dick and Jane. I would stumble upon each word and rush to get through. i anticipated each turn of a page because i was one step closer to the book being set down and getting to play. At the time i didn't realize that the turn of the page meant i was actually one step closer to learning how to read. It took several times to get one page down but when i did i was proud, a couple of sentences slowly made me
There is a sense of exhilaration that is felt when you exit a class with more knowledge in your head than when you first walked into it. That knowledge can be applied to other aspects of your life outside the classroom. In ‘Writing for Success’ I honed my skills more than I expected. In the course, I was able to distinguish between pesky grammar mistakes and control my issues with procrastination. After completing the course, I am more perceptive to what should be trashed and what should be kept.
Furthermore, I start the first memo among three that cover the introduction and an instruction how to view the video. However, I help the team by sending this first memo with the video script that is created by Elaine to Dr. Meredith Singleton. For the conducting process of the usability test, our goal is to find at least ten people to this test. I have asked many of my friends to help me out. Unfortunately, I can get only two people while one is my friend, Matt Brehm, and the other one is my brother, Tong Ngann. This might be because of the final week of the semester that everyone has a lot of work to be done. For the usability testing report, I join Michael and Elaine to complete this work. I work on the methodology section and participants
“Writing is the productive skill in the written mode. It, too, is more complicated than it seems at first and often seems to be the hardest of the skills, even for native speakers of a language, since it involves not just a graphic representation of speech, but the development and presentation of thoughts in a structured way.” (Cynthia, 2013)
