Writing Self Reflection

Improved Essays
In this self-reflection of my experience, I am going to be very candid in my feelings and experience about this professional writing class. I feel like this class was not up to my expectations and I did not learn anything that will make me a better writer. Yea, a few concepts became clearer, but I did not learn anything that will make a significant difference in my writing style. I was kind of let down, because I expected to learn a lot about the art of writing and more ways to express my thought in a clearer matter. I cannot fault this class for my lack of writing ability- it is on me to improve my writing skills. However, I thought by accepting that I need to become a better writer and taking a professional writing class over the summer that I am taking the necessary steps to become a better …show more content…
I feel like I need to continue to education myself about different writing styles, but, I really want to learn about my own writing style. Another thing that I want to learn more about are the concept of writing more in-depth. Like, there are a lot of concepts that I would love to learn about. I am planning on writing a few books in my life, so I would to be able to really write some great books. So, by learning all the writing concepts I feel like I that will make me a much better writer. One of the concepts that I learned were the differences between professional and academic writing. Even though I was already doing that, I just did not know the names of those writing styles. When I am in field I write very concise and straight to the point- and in the classroom I write with a lot fluff and explanation. I will use that in my field placement and classroom setting. I feel like knowing the differences will help me not mix the two styles of writing. I think this will make me look and feel more professional in my writing

    Throughout this semester of English 101, writing has become more of a skill than a struggle. Writing was a challenge that I dreaded when I chose to be in the course, nonetheless with time, I learned from my mistakes and was able to improve. This course made me very doubtful on whether I could be capable of even writing a paper that would provide me with a decent grade, but at the same time made me push myself in my writing technique. In the end, I can reflect that I learned from my mistakes and wrote papers that took time and dedication to accomplish. I learned from this class to be confident in my writing and make all the mistakes to receive the grade I want in the end.…

    I looked at my paper as another character not as Stephanie Moscoso because Stephanie would not change her papers. My portfolio process was similar to the process of how I developed my essay for Two Kinds. I decided to be an author and judge myself not too harsh though because that is never good, but well enough to fix my paper. I wrote all my problems down and looked at my goals for the semester, and one of them was analyzing better, so that is what I did. I used my goals for inspiration to fix my paper and also the notes of my typical problems to help me.…

This way my essay won’t talk about the same thing over again and again.…

    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.…
