Reflective Essay: My Identity Part Of My Life

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.

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
