Errors In Teen Influences

Improved Essays
It’s hard to admit that the writing you made, your masterpiece, has errors. Many authors go through many extensive drafts before they are satisfied with the outcome of their work. Being satisfied isn’t necessarily having a work of art with no mistakes in it. I make errors in the papers I write. It may be because writing it isn’t my forte. Some of the errors in my papers are shown in the final drafts which isn’t good. I have learned to fix my two prominent issues in my writing parallelism, and comma splices. As well as a smaller issue like spelling. I have worked to not make such errors in my work and if I do how to find and fix them. I have grown as a writer in my EWRT 211 class. Even though there are errors in my writing I also have a strength. Nobody wants to someone to read their writing and find errors in the first paragraph. In Teen Influences the name of a in class paper I wrote it had a parallelism error in the introduction. “...will influence a teen’s ability to make decisions, be responsible and ability to treat others.” (1).

To be a college student and have such errors it’s embarrassing. In the final draft of my essay Teen Influences I made three spelling errors. The three words I misspelled were pressure, whether, and benefited. (1-3). These words were misspelled not because I don’t know how to spell them, but because I had a limited amount of time to write the essay in class. I only had fifty minutes to write the four pages of my Teen Influences paper. The day before I could have written half of it, but I didn’t because I had other things on my mind that kept distracting me from doing the in class essay. It may not seem as a huge deal, but a final draft has to be perfect. To fix the spelling issues I now look up how to properly spell a word I have a doubt on how to spell; and also double check spelling when I am rushed and on a time

    As a writer, I would take hours thinking about how to begin a paragraph or what it should be about. I am an extraordinary reading, but when it comes to writing, my writing skills and language skills aren’t the best. I lack the ability to write effective sentences or paragraphs and my topics would be slightly off. In high school, I was taught to start with a hook in the first paragraph. Afterwards, I need to write about the hook by not getting into too much detail.…

    I had a lot of weaknesses to improve on. One of them was learning not to use contractions in my essays. It was so easy for me to just type "It 's" instead of taking one second to just split up the words and make it " it is". Another weakness I had was MLA citation. I would go back and review notes on how to get my format right and I still would not get it right.…

    I also noticed I did poorly on my quizzes when I didn’t take the time to make sure I went through all the questions. An example of this was in the week 1 and 2 quiz I submitted my quiz without making sure I answered all the questions. I noticed that I had this time management problem early in the semester, so I started to do things to help myself with it. I bought a white board and used the black marker for deadlines and the blue marker for when I would work on those things. This helped me tremendously because I was able to break down when and what time I would do things.…

    My group members caught grammar and spelling errors in my assignments that I over looked. During the peer review my paper was also critiqued on its transitions and organization. This helped maintain the logical progression and development of ideas through my paper. The disadvantage of this method is that not all advice that I received was correct. Occasionally I received a piece of advice that would have negative affected my paper.…

    I never did much pre-writing before my English 101 class this year. The most pre-writing I had ever done before English 101 would be writing down some ideas but it wasn’t very organized so it was hard to read. Pre-writing helps me a lot with developing my paper because it allowed me to get my different ideas down on paper so, I could see which ones were better than the other ones. It also helps me because doing pre-writing help me stay organized for my papers. After I put all of my ideas down then I start working on my outline.…

    Writing anything is hard. Before this class I never gave any real thought to my writing I did it because it was something I was told to do. Although writing can be a difficult process, this class helped me to better my writing be teaching me how to better manage my time, use technology, and to be more confident in my writing. Many students lack the skills it takes to manage time when it comes to homework assignments. What I learned is waiting till the last minute to write your papers isn 't going to help you become a better writer, sure you 'll hand the assignment in and might even possibly get a decent grade, but you 're writing itself will never improve.…

    I used my goals for inspiration to fix my paper and also the notes of my typical problems to help me. This writing process was strange to me because I had to pin point everything that I am not too good at and write it xeon to myself and then fix it in my portfolio. It was almost as if I was writing little hate notes to myself because my note should say “your bad and analyzing” “you summarize too much” but that all inspired me to create the portfolio that I now hand to you professor. My journey defiantly does not stop here. I will use these new skills to help me progress in my future papers and now I leave this class with an understanding of what it is to be a good writer.…

    Professor Miller helped me grasp what they had taught me more firmly. After writing my expository essay I feel that I truly began to run with this knowledge. When we began to revise papers for Mr. Reynold’s classes I started to realize how far I had come in just a couple of years. I’m not saying that his classes were full of bad papers, but they definitely weren’t something I would expect out of someone in the Dual Enrollment classes to turn in. As I helped revise these papers, I began to compare myself to these younger writers and wonder what i would do differently.…
