Reflective Essay: My Feelings About Writing

Improved Essays
To be completely honest I have mixed feelings about writing and I don’t really have any memorable experiences that made me feel this way, it is just the experiences that I have had with the subject while trying to apply it. I struggle with what to write down mostly and creativity in general and I don’t really excel at any part of it. If I were to say I “excel” at anything it would be revising my work and adding to it. At the end of the semester I hope that I have relearned some key writing elements that lack of practice has caused me to lose.
I feel that writing is a good subject to be familiar and practicing in frequently, it is a necessary tool to communicate properly. Although, if I were to be truthful I’d have to say that I am not the biggest fan of it due to the fact that it bores me and I have trouble figuring out what to say. So I find it hard to enjoy writing because most of the time I am just struggling to concentrate because I don’t have much more to say about a topic. Recently, since I have not been in school for a while, I have found myself forgetting rules to the English language in my everyday speech so I find it to be useful. This has influenced how I feel about writing because the more I write, the more easily I can remember to use these rules in my daily

As I have been typing this essay though I have come to realize that I don’t like writing in the slightest other than for practice, it is too time consuming and it bores me. The part of writing that I seem to struggle with is writing itself. This is due to the fact that I don’t have much to say and once I have finished what I actually have to say I have trouble with coming up with more. The only part of writing that I would say that I excel at is the revision process. I have one writing goal, that being to have better grammar, other goals are financial. So in conclusion to all of this, I enjoy writing as an idea but not the act of doing

    I also struggle with clarity. I am so used to writing introspectively that I forget to remember that I am telling the story and not everyone knows all the details. Next, I struggle with writing in the correct point of view. I get so wrapped up in my writing sometimes that I will switch my point of view and confuse the readers of my papers. Lastly, my biggest challenge with writing is letting go and remembering that it is not as hard as I am making it seem.…

    Getting over my fears of writing is something I need to do if I want to become a better writer. I’m always afraid of what people think of my writing, and I need to just accept that some people might like it and others may not. As I stated earlier in this paper I tend to get distracted quite easily, which has happened numerous times already when writing this. After I get distracted I lose my train of thought and forget what I was writing about, which leads to problems with my essay. Handwriting my essays before I type them out can really help me focus more, I don’t have a bunch of things on my computer to keep me distracted.…

    I also think its hard the drafting section. I find this part hard because there is times where I don’t know what I need to change to make the writing better. Usually after the first draft I get stuck and don’t know how what I have to change or add. Something that I do like is to get feedback from other people. Some people would argue that getting feedback from others is not too good but most of the time it works for me.…

    I find it difficult to write down my ideas and organize them in a way that makes sense, which is why my essays take so long to write. By the time I have completed an essay my brain is fried and I no longer want to make an effort to read through it and fix my grammar. Third quarter has been the most difficult for me and I'm slowly trying to redeem myself and my writing. I would like to get more writing assignments in this class to be able to practice more. I feel that it would benefit me if I had to write something over and over again until I got it right.…

    Thinking about the whole concept “writing for me” is so cliche I feel like, but it’s the way that helps me feel like my work is important, and worth reading.

Although, I feel like I have grown when it comes to my writing since high school.…

    Reflection on exam I am not adept at writing, hence, generally speaking, writing essays gives me anxiety. So when the time is not unlimited, and factoring in my inability to clearly express my thoughts on paper, I am unable to perform my best. Perhaps my major problem is my anxiety, as I often skim quickly over passages and immediately get stuck on small specifics that I pick up at first glance when feeling pressured. I really strive to write scholarly literary analyses and I feel disappointed and frustrated because no matter how hard I try to think deeper and connect the device with its purpose, I never seem to succeed. I feel annoyed with myself as I feel like my hard work doesn’t pay off.…
