My Personal Development as a Writer

Man vs. literature

Man vs. literature is one of the most pressing topics confronting the scholarly community around the world.

My Experience with Writing

There is a lot that goes into writing, and it can be difficult to master anything. I used to take writing seriously in high school and didn't think of it as a versatile workout. This preconceived notion of what constitutes decent writing stems from the strictness with which I was taught writing in high school. However, thanks to the assistance I received from my professor at the start of my first semester of college, I changed my understanding and vision of what writing is. The first essay I wrote in college was marked below average by the professor and remarks showed that I took the essay with a lot of strictness and denied myself the needed room for flexibility and creativity. The professor organized a meeting that was to soon change my writing forever. During the meeting, the professor taught me that quality does not mean quantity and made it clear that I need to work on my redundant statements. The advice of the professor was to be able to write concisely showing the development of ideas.

Reading Different Stories and Passages

It was recommended that I read different stories and passages. In particular, the professor requested me to write about one topic but in three different ways. I could deliver an essay in the concise form, the exaggerated form, and the academic form. It was then that I understood ways of incorporating elements such as humor in my essays. This event allowed me to have a flexible writing technique where I am able to develop ideas and expound them in detail. For example, reading someone's work and writing a critique about it requires one to clearly understand what the writer intends to say. The critic should then proceed to write in an objective manner based on the way the writer expounds on his or her ideas. Reading different essays and books as recommended by the professor has enabled me to develop my imagination and manipulate the ideas I have.

Dealing with Weaknesses in Writing

The event enabled me to deal with my weakness in writing, which is the failure to put up a strong thesis claim that introduces the reader to what I intend to write about. Before the meeting with the professor, I did not understand the importance of the thesis in setting the tone for the rest of the paper. The continuous practice has enabled me to develop prowess in developing strong thesis statements and removing the redundancies in my statements. It was also due to the event that I was able to understand the different types of essays such as descriptive and persuasive essays. I had the misconception that all essays should be approached the same but the professor made it clear that each of them had a specific way to develop and express ideas. The professor recommended that I learn and understand how to develop clear thesis statements that put authority to my pieces of work.

The Writing Process

Writing on a specific topic requires one to follow a certain procedure for one to come up with a good paper. I was able to understand that pre-writing is as important as any other step in the writing process. It is through the pre-writing process where I develop the ideas I will expound on during the drafting stage. However, one thing that remains constant is the issue of revision and editing. The professor encouraged me to ensure I read, reread, polish, and revise my papers before I turn them in. I had not developed the habit of rereading my work to make use of the grammatical errors I may have made but the event made me understand the importance of proofreading in impressing the reader. The professor taught me the importance of reading the essay aloud to catch the mistakes that I might have made in the process as some of them remain unnoticed. Thus, the writing process of prewriting, drafting, and proofreading was well emphasized by the professor and it is something that I have adopted to date.

Progress as a Writer

I feel I am in a better position as a writer today although there is a lot that I still have to do and achieve. The many essays I have written since the event are an indication that I am a better writer than I was before I joined college. I am now able to organize my ideas in a concise manner that the reader can find easy to comprehend. I now take writing as a flexible venture and one that entails creativity in the creation and expansion of ideas. However, writing is a process and there is still a lot that one needs to learn before becoming an effective writer. Despite this, I feel I have sufficient knowledge and skills to push my writing to a different level.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
