My Argument Essay: What I Learned In My Writing Class

Improved Essays
Since starting this class I have noticed how much I write. I journal at least once a week, I’ve had assignments of all kinds that I’ve had papers for, and I spend a great deal of my time on my phone answering messages. I tried my best to get an A in this class, even though I got sick often, and my attendance was poor on the worst days. I tried to participate even when I wasn’t there; for example, I was messaging Garrett argument ideas through Facebook while I as in bed sick. This was one of my favorite classes this semester.
My writing has changed; it is easier to write a couple pages and the not be so afraid of writing papers. This is because of the amount I’ve been writing for the class, and how comfortable I was to be able to speak my mind to you. These two pages didn’t faze me. I’ve started not caring so much about what others think about my papers and caring more about how I feel about my papers, as long as I feel like I’ve done a decent job with my paper I feel accomplished enough to turn them in and hope for the best.

Shocker, isn’t it? I had fun with that assignment, which helped me stay engaged with the writing and I learned more. I didn’t know how to cite sources properly before that. I didn’t know how to write a personal interview in a paper. When it came to my papers I tried my best to have fun with them; I become distracted easily and if I don’t have something I enjoy for a topic I put it off for longer than is beneficial for me. That paper did end up being a bit choppy, though I did my best to make it not choppy, I added sentences in between each paragraph to try to make it flow. I tried to change my thesis to cover more ground so the reader would know what to expect and so they could follow along. That is one trait that I know about myself, though, I am a choppy writer. Making words and paragraphs flow isn’t my strong

    So writing and editing the essay I chose showed me that there is plenty of room to improve. My original plan was simple and just make small changes, but as I read my work I grew disappointed in myself. I knew that a lot of my mistakes where things that I looked over because I was distracted. Although I know my weakness when it comes to writing I try to stay optimistic with my work. I know if I keep writing I can improve and be more detailed when it comes to checking for…

    I was not an excellent writer at the beginning of the school year, but I can gladly say now that I have inherited more writing skills that I will benefit from in the future. One of those skills is being able to reflect on every angle on my topic to allow me to organize my ideas accurately. This skill is beneficial to learn, for it helped with my report essay to acquire the focus of my paper more clearly. Moreover, this skill helped me write papers in my other classes more easily and efficiently. Likewise, my voice can be read strongly throughout the personal narrative essay, because the passion I had for my topic was an emotional one.…

    Some people would argue that getting feedback from others is not too good but most of the time it works for me. The reason why I like others to read my writing is because it helps me catch some errors in my writing. What I find most confusing is once I have ideas, how to put them together. I always need help with the organization of my writing. I feel like without an organization is really easy for the reader to get lost.…

    Just the distance I gave myself from the papers I wrote throughout this semester was all I needed to retrieve the most errors I could from what I previously wrote. I do have an idea about the paper, but when I do it like that it’s like I have come to it with fresh eyes, and that’s what really helps me. Finding quiet environments to work is something else I acquired that really helped. Constant talking and noise are the biggest of irritants that can prohibit me from producing an effective paper. I am easily distracted, so Finding a quiet place where I can concentrate and avoid distractions was very…

    Before I would not have a process on how to write an essay I would just do it and turn it in thinking it was great how it is but in writing an essay it is never finalize as I learned from Dr. Moreno because there is so much more that can be done. As a result, my writing has improved so much since part A because I learned to have a process for writing such as others editing my work and brainstorming. My writing still needs work because I still have trouble with academic vocabulary that I will expand on soon. In the future for my writing I would love to see it better than it is now because it is the one thing that is going to be used for the rest of my life. Overall, this class taught me so much such as research, conducting data, and blogs.…

    ********************************************************* The first free writing I did in class, I actually enjoyed it a lot. I thought it would be difficult because I wasn 't really sure what I would write about. It turns out it was fairly easy, I had so much to write about, I ended up wishing I had more time. I found out it wasn 't as easy to free write publicly as to privately. My free write introduction on my blog was focusing more on what I wanted the reader to know about me as to my private one I just wrote what came to my head and I…

    For example I found that Essay 1 was easier to writer rather than the Midterm questions. Even though I feel this way I know that these questions will help me later on, when I’m brainstorming for another writing assignment. Most of my research I used when writing comes for the text book or words that I think the author points out when reading a narrative. The narratives this semester were rather short and I enjoyed most of them. Conducting my thought processes after I read a narrative was very helpful for me during this semester.…

    I believe that this class was able to help improve my writing skills in many ways. Producing mid-drafts seemed like a nuisance at first, but has really helped improve my writing. By producing mid-drafts I was always tempted to re-read my essays before handing them in, which is something that I had never did before. Also having peer feedback also helped my writing. 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.…
