The Importance Of Quality Writing

Improved Essays
This has been an interesting semester of ups and downs. I started out pretty confident in my writing though very nervous about sharing it. I never realized how much work a quality research paper is. I have not had to write an essay for anything in over fifteen years. Every assignment was like new missions of relearning what I was once taught and adding what I just learning. Although it wasn 't easy I believe that I wrote some quality papers and was a pretty good student. I believe that research was my biggest struggle this semester. I didn 't really understand the process, or know how to gain a true understanding of the topic I was writing about. Previously I would decide on a topic, write an outline of what I thought it should look like and then jump into writing the paper. When I needed a fact to prove my point I would try to find research that met my …show more content…
I usually ended up feeling frustrated with the process of searching and settling for information that didn 't really fulfill my point. I have now realized that if I choose a topic I 'm interested in and then do the research, by the time I 've learned all I need to know to understand my topic the essay pretty much writes itself. If a research paper is done in this order it becomes a great paper with true incite instead of a paper filled with words that mean nothing. Its a struggle to write a 5-6 page essay when your are B.S.ing your way through it.

It was intimidating to know that I had to learn a new topic and write a paper. But if those fears get set aside the time spent researching makes up for the time it takes to writing the paper. For example my final essay on protest was a

    The argumentative essay was probably one of the hardest essays I had to write thus far this semester. It required a lot of focus and a detailed outline before I was even able to begin forming my first full draft. Just when I thought I had it, there was always something that made me realize I had to fix it or change it. In conclusion, this argumentative essay opened up my viewpoint on many more possibilities of how to structure my essay. I am now going away from the standard five paragraph essay, and I am ready to tackle long lengthy essays.…

    It is hard for me when I have to write about something I am not interested or can relate to at all. This was a harder semester compared to my first because we had to read and focus on analytical writing on readings which was quite more difficult to understand and interpret. I rather write about things I love to do, or something that actually has made sense to me because it will reduce the amount of stress and help me get over the assignment quicker. My main goal in writing is to become an expert like Professor Shil, well at least somewhat close to him. He has great writing techniques and can detect many errors that you have in your paper which is something I would like to improve when it comes to my writing, Lastly, rewriting these essays, multiple times in this class made me excel great knowledge in my writing and I think I will be more prepared for my future career path.…

    It is very difficult for me to write analytically, due to only writing persuasively in high school, and this paper forced me to write in a new way. Although it was unusual and difficult to write that way, I tried my best to meet the requirements and did as much with the prompt as I could. The assignment that I am most proud of is the second writing project. The first essay was difficult because I wasn’t particularly interested in the topic; but the second essay really piqued my interest. As I stated previously, I write my best work when I am really fascinated in the topic and care deeply for the funding of Planned Parenthood.…
