I have always considered writing to be a work in progress, and it constantly can be improved. I have always been devoted to writing. I loved to write stories as a child because I could use my creativity and create any type of character I desired. But I have struggled with writing as well. English has never been my forte. I have received A’s, B’s, C’s, and D’s on essays. I truly never found my voice in writing. In my high school, English teachers would give me mixed reviews on my writing. For example, in 9th grade my English teacher said I was organized with my thoughts, and my writing process was excellent. While in 10th,11th grade ,12th grade my teachers only said negative things about my essays. Not being a strong writer made me despise writing. Then I started to believe that writing is not important. I came to conclusion that writing is not important ,because I am going to be a Math major. I had the mindset that I am not a writer, and will never be a writer. But, my thoughts about writing changed when I started taking English at CSUN.
I was scared to start my first semester at CSUN, because I left my Calabasas bubble, and I had to start fresh. I was scared to take English because I did not know if at Calabasas my English teachers prepared me ,well enough. I was scared that I would not be successful in a college English class. Luckily, English 114A was an eye opener because it made me understand that I am writer, and I that I know how to write. English 114A allowed me to see writing to be a creative process. It was amazing to explore different styles of writing from writing to an author or simply writing an analysis on a silly South Park episode. English 114A, slowly made me love writing again. In English 114A I ...

...riter has had its highs and its lows, thank you professor for making me love writing again. I was able to find my voice as a writer. I do not despise writing an essay anymore. Now I am passionate about writing for so many reasons. I love how I am able to express myself and my beliefs without actually saying them. I love how writing forces me to focus everything I have on it, giving me a hobby, along with something I can do to escape real life for a moment, and just express myself.
Thank you professor for making English 114/B a class to look forward to every Monday and Wednesday. English gave me the opportunity to do something else, rather than solving math problems. I cannot wait to see how I will be able to use my writing, in whatever career path I decide to choose. This is not the end towards my journey of being a perfect writer, it is just the beginning.

Essay about Personal Experience: Bad Hand Writing - ... However, that journal is for my English classes so it is more like a task, not a hobby. Hence, most of the time when I’m done with the class, I also stop writing journal. Moreover, I seldom reread those journals because every time it is mandatory that I write a journal for a class, the teacher also requires me to have a new notebook. Thus, I have many journals but each journal does not contain much, and it is hard for me to keep all these notebooks. Luckily, I just found myself writing journal again recently....   [tags: time, journal, english classes] 761 words

Personal Experience: Writing and Performing my Own Music Essay - “There are approximately 37 million student loan borrowers with outstanding student loans today.” ( Seems to be a ridiculously high number, except for when the fact that “…12 million (people)… borrow annually to help cover costs.” ( This means that 12 million people each year dig themselves just that much deeper into debt. When speaking of college, every year is another leap and another bound into a debt that will take years upon years to pay off. This seems to raise an important question; is college just a debt trap....   [tags: college, music, technology]

Personal Experience Regarding The Process of Writing a Research Essay - Introduction As a professional practitioner of many years standing in education, I welcomed the opportunity I have been given in this module to consider the issues affecting Higher Education (HE) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and to explore the many ways in which I many engage in research by identifying a problem or issue, review the relevant literature, state a purpose for the research and then proceed to gather data and conduct a process of analysis, finally reporting on my findings.

Personal Narrative: My Experience in College Prep II Writing Essay - For the entirety of my undergraduate career I had the distinct ability to successfully write research papers, critical essays and journal entries. On the whole I feel that my writing was successful due to the fact that I received excellent grades as well as glowing comments of support from my professors. Please understand that I am not boasting about my grade point average, class rank or even attempting to claim that I am a good writer. However, I do feel confident in my abilities to write papers that speak directly to the question at hand while simultaneously addressing, although not necessarily adhering to, the professor’s point of interest....   [tags: Narrative Essay Writing English] 1775 words

Outline of My Writing Project: 5 Short Stories of Women who Go from a Painful Experience to Personal Growth - METHODOLOGY/CRITICAL UNDERPINNING My goal for this project is to create a collection of five short stories about young women who have had to grow from a painful experience and transform into a whole new person and my decision to use short stories instead of a novel or another form of prose is because short stories are can be read at one sitting and Carolyn Lee suggests that, “because of its brevity…the short story can be read…without the intervention of ordinary life; and this single focus usually engenders a heightened aesthetic arousal”(2009)....   [tags: methodology, critical underpinning]

My Academic Writing Experience Essay - I had been surprised to find, after returning again to the University of Windsor approximately twenty years after dropping out, that enrolling in academic writing courses had become a requirement to become eligible to graduate. This idea had frightened me at first for legitimate reasons. But with no talking myself out of it, I quickly decided that taking academic writing courses was probably going to be a very necessary practice for me. Realistically, possessing academic writing skills, and I could admit, was an area in which I was sorely lacking....   [tags: Personal Narrative, Spelling Mistakes]

Communication through Writing Essay - What constitutes the nature of a successful writer. Could it solely lie on an interest that fuels the progression of effective expression through writing. Or could the drive to write simply flow from the realization of mastery in understanding what it takes to capture true emotion through writing. It most probably is a clever combination of each. As I think more about it, it seems as though the most logical explanation for why anyone truly excels in a skill is due largely to a driving interest from within....   [tags: Personal Narrative, Personal Experience] 735 words

Writing on Demand Essay - The English Composition course I have been taking has required me to do one of the things I hate to do most, write on command. When I write, really write, I have to be inspired and it has to have a personal meaning for me. I have avoided this course for years, but now I believe there is a reason I was meant to take it at this time in my life. Each essay I have had to create has, at first, seemed an impossible chore. Suddenly though, each time, some event in my life would form a story in my mind, and become an obsession I had to write down....   [tags: Personal Experience, Autobiography] 1551 words

The College Experience Essay - The College Experience "Tomorrow is the first day of what I will become." I wrote this in my diary the night before my first day of college. I was anxious as I imagined the stereotypical college room: intellectual students, in-depth discussions about neat stuff, and of course, a casual professor sporting the tweed jacket with leather elbows. I was also ill as I foresaw myself drowning in a murky pool of reading assignments and finals, hearing a deep, depressing voice ask "What can you do with your life?" Since then, I've settled comfortably into the college "scene" and have treated myself to the myth that I'll hear my calling someday, and that my future will introduce itself to me with a h...   [tags: Personal Narrative Writing] 721 words
