Essay About Difficulties In Writing

Decent Essays
Writing is something that should not come too easy to people. It requires a lot of thought process to get the right wording and phrasing. It also requires the writer to use their own voice in each piece of writing. No one likes a story that does not have a voice and seems like the writer does not care. Reading those kinds of stories or papers can end up boring the reader, maybe even to the point where they stop reading.
One of my main difficulties in writing is getting the correct wording and phrasing. I always seem to struggle with picking out the right wording to make everything flow together. I felt if stuff does not flow together easily, then the writing is sometimes bad. I felt that I also used the same words and phrases repeatedly. I

With the peer reviews, it was great to have other people edit and give their advice on how we can fix things. Usually they will catch some spelling or grammar mistakes are the writer themselves cannot always catch. It is so helpful to hear other people’s idea and recommendations. Usually there is at least one part in a writing that the writer cannot think of the right wording or phrasing. Also with peer reviews, you get a chance to read other people’s writings. With that, you can get a chance to see other people’s ideas, and that could spark new ideas for your own writing. With the workshops, we got actual criticism from our teacher. With that, we can get pointers on what we need to fix and what works in our writing. This was extremely helpful since we could fix all the mistakes and then turn in our papers to hopefully get a higher grade. The workshops were also very helpful since we got a whole class period to just write. Sometimes when I would be working on my papers in my dorm, I would get easily distracted and stop writing. Since we had to go to a workshop, it gave me time to just write and have no distractions, which in the end helped my paper overall I

    In addition, it has helped me improve my writing skills, grammar and punctuations. Receiving feedbacks on the discussion boards and during peer reviews helped me notice the errors I couldn’t see when I reviewed my own work. It helped me know honestly how my paper flowed, if it made sense to the reader and how they were able to briefly summarize what my writing was about. I feel that I have changed as a writer. I have become more aware of my writing skills and always kept in my mind that there is always room for improvement.…

    It showed us that people can use rhetoric to prove something but that not everything is what it seems. The course has provided great examples to show how rhetoric is used in everyday issues. From taking this course I feel confident enough to move on and take upper level writing courses, Also the course made us write relevant papers that later on proves to help with studies that involve my major more directly. Artifact one shows how the class taught us to be mindful of the consequences of what we write because every action has a reaction that later has positive or negative results. Actifact two shows that we learn from our failures.…

    Finally, revising drafts and receiving feedback from my teacher and classmates has helped for the most part. While I seemed to find constructive feedback from my teacher, my classmates could have been more supportive. While reading some feedback all I would get is compliments for some people, while its flattering to be complimented, I would rather have tips on how my writing get better. Creating these writing pieces has taught me a lot about my voice and audience and has allowed me to reflect on my…

    Instead of rushing headlong into a paper and writing it all in one sitting, working through the writing process actually forced me to stop and thoroughly read every source to find what information I agreed/disagreed with. Pre-writing helped to pinpoint what my beliefs/ideas were in both the personal culture paper as well as the quote-directed paper. Peer review and tutoring really helped to improve the conciseness of my papers, drawing all my thoughts and ideas into clear, cohesive paragraphs that flowed smoothly from one to the next. My peers and my tutor also picked out errors that I tended to overlook; they were unbiased and were able to point out errors such as awkward wording and incorrect punctuation. I know now that a paper cannot be written all in one sitting.…

    Authors aren’t always positive about using it in their stories. A lot of authors use different types of irony to get the readers attached, so they will want to keep reading. It is often mistaken because irony is very similar to other literary devices. The way to notice the differences is to really read it over and think about the other similar literature. Irony is more misleading from the beginning rather then being a…

    I personally really liked this workshop that we did in class and I think it should be added to the schedule for future assignments. Reading the sample essays as a class and breaking them a part piece by piece made it easier to understand what you are looking for in our Scholarly Rhetorical Analysis. I was able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each paper. But I also heard new opinions from peers that I overlooked when reading it by myself. I think that was the most beneficial to me because if something did not work in one of the essays I could look at my own essay and try to avoid doing that myself.…

    With the peer feedback I was able to take what was wrong with my paper and fix it before turning it in for a final grade which I found as excellent. This allowed me to change any errors that I had not previously come across. Also producing a mid-draft allowed me to go back and re-read my essay after not having it in front of me for some time. It allowed me to re-read my essay fresh allowing me to produce new ideas and thoughts I could put into my essays. I believe this class helped me improve on my writing as a whole.…

But because I have a hard-time developing my ideas, the readers are left confused.…
