  • Argumentative Essay

    There are many types of essays that at some point almost everyone has written. Some of the essays include a narrative, a descriptive, a persuasive, and expository. “Those are the four major types of essays” (Time for Writing), and they are also the ones I will be talking about in this essay. There are more like a cause and effect, a comparison, or also a research essay. It is a good thing to know the differences between essays, so one doesn’t write a persuasive when told to write a narrative. The first one I will be talking about is a narrative essay. There are two main types of narrative essays, one is nonfiction and the other is fiction. The main purpose of this essay in to entertain the reader, and also leave them with some sort of knowledge to take away from the story. A nonfiction narrative is usually about something that has happened to the author, whether it was good like winning the lottery or bad like losing their favorite watch. A fictional narrative is something that hasn’t happened. Usually these are written solely for the purpose of entertaining their readers. A fictional narrative could either be realistic, meaning that what happens in the story has a chance to happen in real life. I fiction narrative could also be entirely fiction, meaning it could have things happen that are impossible in real life. For example, the story may have a dog talking to its owner. Whatever the narrative is about or if it is nonfiction or fiction, a narrative is…

  • Reflection Essay

    My expectations coming into a college course were not scaled by the level of difficulty, rather the effectiveness of English 101. Especially, for a class that I must pay for would it be worth the time and money? As the class continued throughout the year I realized my skills as a writer and for academic writing improved, I found what I need extra practice on, as well as what I would like more out of the class in the future. As a college course, I expected for there to be mostly essays and…

  • The Importance Of An Essay

    that different types of structures and skills are what create magic in an essay. There are various key points that a persuasive or good essays contain. First, the content is important. Even if the points are good, I think the essay loses the audience’s interest when there are no examples and supporting contents. If this happens, the essay is just a piece of paper with just stated ideas or thoughts. Additionally, organization in the essay is vital. There are times when I sometimes blank out while…

  • How To Write An Essay About Me Essay

    of my isolation. The upbringing of my Vietnamese family has left me alone at home for most of my life. This left me with little interaction outside the house besides my computer. It may be one of the major reasons why expressing my opinions in writing pieces effectively is quite difficult for me. I believe college will help me develop the communication skills I desperately lacked when I was a child. The obvious reason I landed inside English 95 is because I don’t know how to structure my…

  • Reflective Essay

    I’d like to begin this reflective essay by airing out that I’ve never had the same affinity for reading and writing that I do for the sciences. Early in my education I struggled with them. However, during my high school experience I believe I’ve developed the requisite talents needed to be – at least somewhat – proficient in the aforementioned areas. With regards to reading, my largest problems have come from my tendency to lose focus, and most of my writing issues were caused by not knowing…

  • Reflection Essay

    confidence and skill. Throughout high school, I have assumed that I am a decent reader, with my average expectations; however, I have constantly struggled with translating what I know into intelligible phrases like my peers in gifted English seem to do with ease. Insecurity has always gone hand-in-hand with my writing- not because I am unwilling to try, but because I never perceive my work as good enough. Despite the fact that people reading what I write terrifies me, speaking in front of people…

  • Personal Reflection Essay

    All of my points were laid out for me. Now that I used outlining and pre-writing to write three large essays for English, I understand the importance of outlining and pre-writing. My essays have a much better flow to them and are generally organized fairly well. Although my essays are far from perfect, they are much better than my previous essays that I have written. I have learned that outlining and pre-writing are critical steps that must be completed in order to write and strong essay. Since…

  • Purpose Of Personal Essay

    days contemplating the most spectacular and breath-taking experience you can think of, but why? The purpose of a personal essay in my opinion should not be concerning who has had the most traumatic life experience but about who can ultimately give the reader a true look inside them. This unfortunately I simply cannot do. Personal essays have always been a chore and a tedious task to me. Not to mention the small success rates. It is difficult enough to think of a fascinating topic, but then they…

  • Laziness Essay Examples

    of words, and yet it is one of the most important pieces to an essay (besides the conclusion). The writer must pull someone into the story. Almost literally wrapping the words around the reader 's mind, and letting the reader live through the writer 's own thoughts. I would love to say that I am a fantastic writer; however, my writing process is so ineffective that it really alters the outcome of my essays. MY WRITING PROCESS IS USUALLY TAKEN OVER BY LAZINESS, INDECISIVE DECISIONS, AND HORRIBLE…
