I find very hard to come on with ideas even if its about a simple subject. I have to rethink and even ask my friends or family members for some ideas. When i find myself stuck in a idea I have to stop writing and take a break. By taking a break I feel like I have an opportunity to have a fresh mind when I get back to the writing. I also think its hard the drafting section. I find this part hard because there is times where I don’t know what I need to change to make the writing better. Usually after the first draft I get stuck and don’t know how what I have to change or add. Something that I do like is to get feedback from other people. Some people would argue that getting feedback from others is not too good but most of the time it works for me. The reason why I like others to read my writing is because it helps me catch some errors in my writing. What I find most confusing is once I have ideas, how to put them together. I always need help with the organization of my writing. I feel like without an organization is really easy for the reader to get lost. When it comes to getting everything organized and put together I like to ask an instructor about it and that is what usually works for

Although, if I were to be truthful I’d have to say that I am not the biggest fan of it due to the fact that it bores me and I have trouble figuring out what to say. So I find it hard to enjoy writing because most of the time I am just struggling to concentrate because I don’t have much more to say about a topic. Recently, since I have not been in school for a while, I have found myself forgetting rules to the English language in my everyday speech so I find it to be useful. This has influenced how I feel about writing because the more I write, the more easily I can remember to use these rules in my daily…

    Composing Process I recently started back to school after many years of working. Although assigned writing is a little stressful for me, I am attempting to get used to it. I like to think I am a fun person to talk to, however I do not feel I am an entertaining writer by any means. Writing is a great challenge to me because writing restricts facial expressions, tone of voice and hand gestures in which I use very frequently while speaking. This poses a problem as I try to organize and arrange sentences to reflect how I would actually say them in person.…

    The reason why some of these rules can be discouraging is because the only way one can improve and master these rules is by practicing them. An example of a rule that can be tedious or discoursing is creating a works cited page. A works cited page is an extra page at the end of your paper where you give credit to quotes used in ones paper. At glance a works cited page does not look like a big deal but when I began writing I would constantly forget to include the works cited page hence, making me appear as an inexperienced writer. Not only can writing rules be tedious and discouraging but these rules also separate the experienced writers from the inexperienced.…
