Positive And Negative Setting Analysis

Improved Essays
One assignment that I really enjoyed was the positive and negative setting descriptions. For this project we got to choose from a few pictures that were given to us. We first had to write a positive description of the scene. After that we had to write a negative description using the same ideas as we used for the positive. I really like to use descriptive words when I am writing. This is one reason I liked this writing assignment. I was able to create a story using my senses to describe the scene. This was some what challenging to do. I had to think outside of the box and use my imagination to create something that may or may not be in the picture. I learned how to look at the same thing from different views and learned how to express those things in my writing. …show more content…
I love to write about what I know well and what I care about. Writing about a story that happened in my life was easy and fun. Well, at least I thought it would be. I found it to be kind of challenging because I had to take a memory I had in my head and put it down on paper. I learned that not everything you think sounds good on paper. I had to work hard to get it to flow without changing the story. I learned how to write a story, not just an essay. I was able to practice skills like dialogue, first person and both past and present tense. I loved the challenge it gave me and the opportunity to write about something from my life. The assignment “Me as a writer” was very interesting for me to write. I was able to look back at myself, as a writer, and write an analysis. I loved finding out what kind of writer I was. What I like and don’t like about writing. While writing this paper I learned how to make my writing better. I was able to critique myself, and also applaud

    It allowed me to see that I was not weird for wanting to revise multiple times. “On Keeping a Notebook” showed me that a personal flare and some fun stories can make your writing come to life. They make the reader interested in what you have to say and not zone out as you repeat facts. “Shitty First Drafts” and “On Keeping a Notebook” both improved my writing style and process by making it a lot less rigid and more reader friendly. These two pieces had two different tones and moods but the same message and I really found that interesting.…

    I have learnt to understand the importance of sentence structure, drafting, and proof reading and not over using commas creating sentences that are too long. As a writer I learnt that it is vital to seek criticism of your work, whether it is positive or negative you need to remember it is a stepping stone to improve your work, not a personal attack. Looking back on my schooling years and experiences with writing we always covered the main basics to writing, but until now have the vital mechanics behind writing been taught to us. Opening up my mind to a world of creativity and engaging with my imagination rather than…

    It too allowed me to be very creative with my writing. I very much enjoyed writing that assignment. I thought outside of the box with the way I structured and organized my Open Letter. I had decided to go with a different approach since I had such a common topic, which was Black Lives Matter. At first I was very reluctant to write on this topic.…

    One of my goals to become a better writer was to put in more effort in the process of an essay, so slowly I began to edit more and more. Techniques that I learned were to read my paper out loud and even to read it backwards. These methods present writing in a different manner than on a bright computer screen. Often times when reading in our heads, we writers already know what we are trying to say therefore small errors can go undetected. A perfect representation of this would be my argumentative essay about immigration detention center.…

    Most importantly, this course has given a lot of confidence in my writing process. I learned how helpful, for me, it can be to begin your writing with a thesis. Specifically, starting with a thesis gives me room to bend, yet stay on track with my essays. Staying focused on the essays topic has been a bit of a weakness for me. Although, by using a thesis, as a start up tool it has come to be extremely helpful.…

    I enjoyed hearing about different perspectives on details that I didn’t think about before. I always tried to implement the feedback that I received from all my sources, I understood that it only made myself and my writing better. More specifically, my overall take away from the creation and revision of these materials, was that the writer really needs to think about his audience, and the goals that the writer wants to accomplish. As an employer, I would want to hear from the applicant why his or her experience is relevant and specific to the work that my company does. The feedback I received on my projects was very valuable and was happy to implement it into my writing.…

    I really enjoyed writing flash fiction mostly because it was a new challenge to convey an idea in such a little space. For me, the process reminded me of how I write poems. I am inspired, get an idea, and am able to start and finish the draft in one sitting. When I wrote flash fiction I had to change my fiction writing mind-set because for one thing, flash is much shorter. Flash fiction makes you think more because you have to fit in so much without saying all of it directly.…

    While academic writing limited me to choosing a single side of any issue, creative writing liberated me from such confines by allowing me to explore ideas that were captured in multiple sides of an argument. As I continue to evolve into a superior writer, I hope to find a way to marry these two processes into a single writing methodology. I hope my education in writing will help me to bridge the divide between my personal and academic writing styles. My ideal future writing self would be able to express herself in a clear and concise manner on issues of deep personal importance without fear of her audience’s opinions. I take steps toward this goal every day and as Lincoln states, “I’m a slow walker but I never walk…

    The writings have made me have a good understanding of discourse community in which the readings also help with that. The infographic writing assignment gives me a better understanding of discourse community and evolves my theory of writing because it makes me believe that writing has a purpose. In the infographic it shows me discourse community doing a writing for someone else which evolves my theory of writing as it was previously that writing is useless just something to do in class. When doing my review that shows me genre writing of a particular genre and that is also is showing me writing for other people, writing for a purpose. It was fun to do the review assignment and I felt that it had a reason to do it to have something for anybody to read to decide if they should go see the movie or not.…

    It was easy for me to understand what was going on within the text since I was very interested in the storyline, but I was just looking at the surface. So coming face to face with this project I struggled with analyzing the situations that were happening. Not going to lie, I was highly discouraged when I received the feedback from my rough draft. I was told that my six pages of content were basically a literary analysis and not an analysis of rhetoric. It made me think that I was doing everything wrong and I would have to start from square one all over again.…
