When I think of writing I think about writing down all my ideas and elaborating as much as possible. I know sometimes that can hurt you when your writing essays because you have to respond to a prompt or argue a text. But I just love when I get to write about topics that relate to me. Who doesn’t love to free write ? I feel like that’s when you get to see the authors viewpoint or tone. But with these new methods and strategies involved with writing that I am learning, it’s a little bit challenging. Especially for me since I’m used to writing a certain type of way, but you know as I got to college my writing style has definitely changed for the better.
So during this assignment I tried organizing everything before the draft and the final. Like I drew out a outline of all my sources and the important ideas I wanted to highlight when I type it. Additionally, I also reread and scanned my articles. I used a new strategy that I never did when writhing papers and that is widen my search span, I used to think google had everything. But when I searched in the CUNY database and the libraries for book and articles there was just something that clicked for me. While writing the draft I never really worked with stance, and genre. So I think that tripped me up. Also I felt there were times I was being repetitive, so I have to work on that. So I know In the future I will definitely be using the CUNY database for reliable sources. I feel like it was successful, Although I will be using other strategies in the future for writing papers. I may have to alter my strategy just a little because it’s all over the place, and not working efficiently as I want it to be. This essay was a great start for me learning types of writing and why we use it in our papers. I look forward to see the next essay.
