Answering both these questions will help me with my last step of my self-evaluation, developing a plan to learn new skills....   [tags: Self-Evaluation] 960 words

Can Writing Be Fun? - Writing and school work, to be honest, have always been at the bottom of my list for things that I enjoy doing. I can remember from as early as grade 1 having great difficulty in most areas of school work. I have always had a great anxiety about completing assignments or having to read the required books, I went through all of high school having never read a complete book. It’s not that I think I am stupid but just not interested in these types of activities. I find it hard to keep my attention focused on reading when there are so many great things, or maybe not so great things, out in the world to think about....   [tags: essays research papers] 490 words

Inventing a Writing Technology - Inventing a Writing Technology At first glance, inventing a new writing technology seems like an easy task. The pencil is a writing technology, and what’s so complicated about it. It appears to be a fairly primitive writing utensil. Certainly, I can conjure up something that reasonably fits the description of a “new writing technology.” But looking a little more deeply, I have to consider that the basic concept of the pencil has lasted for centuries – it apparently serves its purpose extremely well....   [tags: Literature Techniques Papers]

Good Writing - Good Writing What is good writing and who writes well. In my college essay writing class we have looked at three famous writers from different ages who are considered to be good writers—Seneca the Younger (3-65 A.D.), Plutarch (46-120 A.D.), and Michael de Montaigne (1533-1592 A.D.). Although they are from different times and places, these writers mastered the art of good writing. Albeit they wrote about different things, there are three aspects of their writings that they all have in common--they write about a topic that will catch the interest of the reader, they write clearly, and they are concise....   [tags: essays papers] 502 words

My Writing - My Writing might get; then again, maybe you won't. I guess it depends on the situation. There is a "me" behind everything I write. That I know because if I didn't exist, neither would my writing.

Original Writing - Original Writing I had always felt as if I were trapped in this place I called home. It was like hell living with him, my father. I could hardly breathe without him knowing. There had even been times when he locked me in the house just so I wouldn’t associate with Christians. He was just so overprotective; he never really cared about me. All he cared about is himself and his money. Sometimes I thought that I might as well not even be here. He didn’t treat me like a father treats a daughter but like an owner treats its dog....   [tags: Papers] 492 words

Original Writing - Original Writing Yay. Another blissful day at school, (hint my sarcasm). I hate the way the bell assaults my ears in the morning, especially when I have to attend this “temple” of learning. (As I like to call it). I should really be on my way to registration but I like the thought of walking slowly, gives me time to think, to think what the day might bring, but I like the thought of walking slowly and being late, after all it is only Mr Miles reading out notices that don’t concern or interest me in any shape or form....   [tags: Papers] 572 words

Personal Writing - Personal Writing “Laura to room three” called the receptionist. I hated going to the doctors, just in case it was anything serious. This visit to the doctors was because my legs, arms and face were all badly swollen. I explained all this to the doctor; he had a press of my legs and said the marks that were appearing were due to water retention. He sent me straight to Hartlepool General Hospital. Once we arrived at the hospital, they asked me many questions about how I felt, and how I’d been feeling the past few months....   [tags: Papers] 576 words

Travel Writing - Travel Writing Monday 16th of December, 4 pm. I got out of the plane and walked down a glass tunnel, disappointed. During the whole trip, I was imagining that it would just paradise. A bright blue sky, exotic birds, multi-coloured pelicans, coconut trees everywhere and the pulchritudinous sea. I was wrong. The airport was at least ten miles away from any town and more than fifty miles away from the sea.

Original Writing - Original Writing I come from Arkholme, no one admits that, I will. The two roads through our village are our only escape routes, plus the river and the railway. We have a pub, run by a bully, a shop, run by gossips and a garage with no cars in it. It’s like a badly written soap opera. There’s a playing field with one football net, but no pitch or ball.

Writing has been established as a process of placing collected and possibly organized thoughts onto some sort of platform with a set system of figures or characters that can ideally be read and understood by other people....   [tags: Technological History Essays]
