Reflective Essay: My Identity Part Of My Life

Great Essays
I have been searching for my identity part of my life, constantly wondering what is my purpose in life and what do I live behind me when I’m gone. Throughout this semester in writing class I experienced many different answers to that question as while as new ways to express myself with my writing skills. Each essay was like a testimony to what I had kept quiet about, while writing every essay it was like I was feeling oxygen in my lungs. None of my essays were formed quickly each took thought and persuasiveness it was something I had to be honest as a writer about. I think that is what this class gave me the biggest opportunity of was being given a black page and some how creating a beautiful vibrate masterpiece. Being personal about my childhood …show more content…
I still need to further my progress on grammar and organizational skills to make my writing flow better and punctuation. Just about all the papers that were assigned to me this semester had almost the same comments which were fixing the little things like punctuation. However, the writing that I must find satisfying are narrative essays because I think that is what I am best at, being one with a pen in paper is what I would say being an artist is all about. Before I would have never said my essays were art but now I truly believe that they are not because I wrote them and they got a good score but because I told my story and did not have to sugar code it for anyone, I expressed myself and put myself for everyone to see. It wasn 't because I wanted to know what they thought of my work but more because I wanted me to think of my work not just confined to myself by out there for everyone to know it 's okay to express yourself. Also I find narrative essay difficult because you have to come to terms with your situations that have been pressed below but I think that makes it more rewarding with you finally reach the surface. Since I have only written one narrative essay this semester I think that would best reflect my writing as of right now. The searching was my favorite part of the writing process by the hassle would be the conclusion because there was a constant debate in my head of what it could be but …show more content…
I will say that the one thing that really differs from the others are some of our discussions and essays are having to do with recent events whereas in those other essays in different classes are more about old literature. If there is a recurrent theme in my writing I do not see I try to keep it as fresh and diverse as I can. I do these because I do not want my essays to be about one thing I rather they be different and for me to have a lot of options to choose from so I do not get stuck as a one box type of writer. I think a writer should be spontaneous but also mysterious so they don’t give anything away. Writers should always a vision, I put them on the same level as I do artist. With all these said I do think of myself as a writer because I basically live in head making up different scenarios and dramas that could page turners. I did begin to start to write out of school but I always got distracted with something else causing me to stop writing out of school, I do miss it and I would start again if I believed that I would not get distracted again but I think I would therefore why start something that I won’t be able to finish. I can foresee myself doing teen dramas and romance novels because those novels have always interested me the most. If I could not do that then I would do personal writing first

    I am Stephanie Moscoso and as a writer I tend to summarize too much, sometimes a little too much. In my paper Two Kinds I summarized so much that even my quotes would summarize what I just said. Throughout my journey as a writer I have gotten the chance to see that I love writing, but sometimes it could be difficult for me to express my self, so I ramble on. This semester one of the most difficult essays that I had to do was about the story “Two Kinds”. Usually I am really good in brainstorming, but this specific essay was not as easy for me because we had to look at it through a critical lens and analyze the story well.…

    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.…

    Even though English 101 is a beginner writing class, it taught me how to apply those writing skills outside of the classroom walls, while helping me more than any of my other high school English classes. English 101 became better than predicted once the fear of procrastination disappeared, the writing became an expression. I feel now that I can write without being judged, and I can make the mistakes I need in order to excel. Likewise, the feeling of being confident in writing is the uttermost important lesson that this class has provided me with. Writing is not something that should be feared, but something that should be…

    The semester is almost over now. I took Composition and rhetoric, obviously, because it is a compulsory course, but further than that I was truly excited to see what it could offer. English has always been my passion and a language I wanted to learn to perfection. I am glad to say that this course did not disappoint; it has been a class that helped me improved my writing abilities, as much as my comprehension skills. Whenever we desire to learn a new language it can be challenging, putting our thoughts and ideas in paper is complicated and even more when you do not do it in your mother tongue.…
