The key to my success, in managing my writing process, is through organization and preparation. Through the objective of practicing ways to plan and organize material in written compositions, I have excelled in developing my writing process. When writing I have developed somewhat of a routine. This routine usually begins with reading the assignment’s rubric given to me through my professor. Then, based on the assignment, I then tend to research what is needed in order to execute it. Next, when all necessary information is gather, I use my resources at hand to form my own personal rubric based off the one my professor has supplied. This rubric is my own key to success. From there, I combine my rubric with the information to formulate a rough …show more content…
Through implementing the same strategies we had talked about in class, I learned how to execute the same rhetorical methods as well. I do this by also identifying my audience, utilizing my vocabulary and language so it may make my own argument stronger, and also tapping into my reader’s pathos. An great example of having to read and write critically was Assignment 2, mine by entitled, Speaking Up: The Importance to Speaking on Gender and Feminism. In this assignment, I was asked to choose two articles, particularly from the texts we have analyzed in class, and execute a comparative analysis on the two.

Rather than revising to be grammarly correct or in the right MLA format, there is extremely beneficial to revise with a certain objective in mind. I was taught this lesson especially in the Assignment 3 Reflection and Analysis. Through this task to re edit my paper, which I thought I already has edited enough, I found that that the writing process is a series of revisions. By focusing on grammar in this revision process, I found that I tend to write with many drawn out details that can be too drawn out at times, as well as, I also write in longer sentences, which is not necessary wrong but can also take away from the point I
