What Is The Weakness Of Writing

Improved Essays
Writing is one of the things that comes easy for me, but I feel that my real weakness stems from not wanting to read. Although, for the few books that I’ve read in my life, I did enjoy the reading in most cases after I got started. I take it that some people love to read, so they assume that their students or their peers feel the same way, but nothing could be farther from the truth when it comes to me reading stories.

My struggle for this class will be reading all of the short stories. Once I read the story, I can very easily put the stories into writing, and give my feelings about the author and what I believe he was feeling when he wrote the story, or the message that he was trying to convey. My handwriting is very poor from an artistic

When I first realize I had a problem in writing, I was writing a community paper, my choice of words in my mind was great, but they were horrible when they were put in writing. I took the community flyer and pass them out in front of a school, and I remember a parent saying to another lady who in the world wrote this? This person right like they’re in the third grade, I was embarrassed and I knew there needed to be some changes in my writing. I stop passing out the flyer and went home. I went home and read what I had written; I saw the grammatical errors and the improper use of words. I didn’t proof read my paper, and I paid the …show more content…
When I completed my English class, I didn’t consider myself to be an award-winning writer, but I knew my work had become legible, understandable and I knew how to construct a sentence. I guess hating English when I was in high school really showed up in my adult life, but now as an adult I find it one of my easiest subjects, because I feel that I’m very creative when it comes to expressing myself, or giving my opinion on stories that I’ve read. For example, my reading is more technical, and that to me is mandatory for the work that I perform. I’ve even lost a good job for my inability to communicate on

    Little did I know that was not the case. After receiving my grade and feedback I realized my sentences were choppy and not well put together. When I submitted my paper the second time not only did I receive a better grade but also a better understanding of what my papers should look like and what the content should include. I really enjoyed writing this paper, because it allowed me to write about something I have a passion for. I really enjoy writing narratives, but I believe the easiest and best paper I wrote in this class would be essay two.…

    Junior and senior year I took a combination of different English classes including, research writing, creative writing, 19th century literature, and 20th century literature. I was only fond of two out of my six English teachers throughout high school. My creative research writing teachers were the ones I liked best, which probably had something to do with the subject they taught. I would rather write papers than read books, especially older literature. I am glad that I made the decision to challenge myself because it helped me improve my literacy skills.…

    In my TA group, I asked my classmates to write based off of a scenario I gave them. One of them actually just copy and pasted the prompt and added a few extra words in there while someone else created an entirely new tone for it. By this, I could tell full well that the first person really didn’t want to do the assignment, and the second person actually enjoyed it. Diction and tone are vital to actually letting your voice shine through in your writing. I knew that one of my classmates in the TA group was very passionate when writing because she was the only one who brought in some of her work for me to look at and even told me herself she was.…

    I felt that after writing basically the same paper about my baggage from growing up to try something new and it worked. You confirmed my ability to provoke some kind of emotion, by answering my rhetorical question “am I boring” in the feedback saying I am in fact “far from boring.” In my Literary Walk RR paper’s feedback section you wrote “the compass with set directions definitely puts a sad spin on the desire” to be something different. You said “you aren’t a shadow.” Once again, in this paper I wanted to evoke sadness and compassion for me because I had to take some general education classes. I used the strong images used by Marin Bell to do this. Using his idea of a shadow to portray myself as always being on bottom, never succeeding in these class.…

    As middle school and high school went on I was still able to do really well in Spelling and English. I loved English. I loved writing and learning sill little songs to remember things in English like, “Good, better, best, never let it rest until the good gets better and the better gets best.” But, when it came to reading I was just not interested. It was so boring to me. With me thinking it was boring it made me eventually hate reading.…

    Having this little bit of taste of what college is really like, is what has made me feel confident about writing papers for my other classes. Also, having a persistent teacher has instilled this confidence in me too. These are only a few examples of what Dual Enrollment has done for me. Over the course have noticed that I have developed a particular writing style. My style is that I like to begin the first sentence of personal writing with something dramatic but still keeping it serious; while my last sentence shall be kept like a dramatic exit.…

    Montaigne used his writing as a way to tell readers of his different sides, or different personality traits. He was able to reflect himself into his writing in a way that his readers could learn about him in a deeper sense. In a way writing essays are a way for writers to tell their story to anyone who will read the words. Essays are the simplest form of expression. I can recall a time when I was struggling to find the right words and spoken language was not cutting it.…
