Going into college, I was very nervous about taking this class. Throughout high school, I excelled in math and science, but I always struggled in reading and writing. The most challenging part for me, then and now, is reaching the length limit for papers; my writing style is very condensed and it is incredibly difficult for me to expand my ideas to a specific length.

Then, after using the free-writing method, I will connect the dots by writing linking the different ideas, and then I will put the sentences in a logical order to maintain the sentence
