Reflective Essay On My Writing Process

Better Essays
Throughout this semester, My Writing has been improved in relation to understanding the genre conventions and identifying the rules for different writing processes. One of the topics I learned how to master throughout this semester is becoming better at in-text citations. Another topic that my writing has improved in is in media res. In media res might have been one of the hardest parts I had to try to learn and had to improve on. The third improvement in my writing process had to be on genre conventions such as thesis statements, rhetorical analysis, and organization. The final accomplishment is knowing which type of writing is for which audience. These topics are the topics that changed in my writing process.

In media res was used in my unit one paper, and it was pretty hard at first. After learning about it and asking questions to my professor, it became a little easier. In media res is French and it means you start your essay with the climax of you story. I used this in my Literacy Narrative essay which was my unit one essay. In media re is really important to the writing process, it helps grab the reader’s attention and make the reader want to keep reading to know the full story of what is going on. To really start an in media res story you have to start where the main point of the story is or where all the excitement happens. I learned that just to interest the reader it is always good to start with an in media res. I also learned that an in media res can be used to organize and draft the essay. In media res starts out in the middle of the things, then after the in media res, the begging of the story starts. In media res took me a while to actually learn and understand it to the

    I understand what I need to write about, but just do not know how to start it. However, what has helped me with my writing process has been setting up a draft in which I write down what I will talk about in each paragraph. Also, peer reviews have helped me so much with my writing process. I like having my peers read over my essay and give me feedback. This helped me know where I needed to make changes and parts I did well on.…

One of those skills is being able to reflect on every angle on my topic to allow me to organize my ideas accurately. This skill is beneficial to learn, for it helped with my report essay to acquire the focus of my paper more clearly. Moreover, this skill helped me write papers in my other classes more easily and efficiently.

    English 49 has done a lot for me academically in becoming a better writer and studier. In my essays I’m sure you’ve probably found strengths as well as weaknesses. Some that need to be worked on and some that have improved since the beginning of the semester, with of course some being more defined than others. But I hope in all they show more improvement than the latter. All though my proof reading skill still needs a little work, I know I’ve improved quite a bit as a writer.…

    English 102 Reflection

    Over the course of English 102, I have developed a new set of skills and learned to become a better writer. When I first came into English 102 I struggled with many different concepts of writing. During the semester in English 102, my writing became stronger because I learned how to incorporate evidence into my argument, do more thorough research, have smoother transitions, and have more organization throughout my essay. I learned how to peer review better and to take what others say and incorporate it into my essay. In the beginning, before English 102, I struggled with good organization and flow to an essay, sandwich evidence into paragraphs, and having strong arguments in persuasive essays.…

    This is basically the informal guidelines of a good document’s design. To be successful, one must still understand, analyze for purpose, audience, and genre. I improved the most in “Learning the common formats and design for different kinds of text.” In the first two writing projects, I had to use APA format which was new to me, but in the last project we created a site/portfolio which is a breakdown of our essays. With the conventions of mechanics, I tend to struggle in integrating and applying citations correctly throughout all my essays, but I hope to improve that as I go through to the next semester. Lastly, I need to better my essays by writing in a knowledgeable way instead of writing like I am talking to someone I…

    Although I believed that my final drafts were good and I had grown as a writer throughout the semester, I did have weakness and strengths in my writing. Some weakness that I did have was my ability to start off my papers and create great thesis statements to persuade my audience to continue reading. As time progressed throughout the semester I was able to become more conformable and confident as a writer.…

    My development as a writer has throughout this course has been an exciting one. During high school my teachers were very strict in what they wanted which in ways helped my writing but in other ways it hurt my writing.

It has made me mindful of my grammar, which I normally just did whatever, and it has also given me the chance to improve by means of useful feedback from my professor.

    Professor Hamlet taught me a lot about my writing style by commenting and marking my rough draft and/or my final draft, so that I could have a few pointers and tips for the proper formatting, style, and organization of my paper. For example, on my personal narrative at the beginning of the year, Hamlet made a good point that I often tend to repeat myself. Thereafter, I learned and begun trying to avoid unnecessary repetition which has helped improve my grade on the essays. In addition, she noted that I needed to learn to speak more clearly and clarify important thoughts and ideas better. That tip helped me, as well, because I learned to identify, clarify, and note the most important details of my papers.…
