Writing, it is one of the easier things for me to do in the world of literature. Ideas, words and themes pop in my head in the blink of an eye. I decide what to write about by doing a mental brainstorm of all the thoughts in my head. All thoughts are included at this point despite the fact If I don’t like it or not. The one that I like the best is the one that I use. Being told what to write really irritates me because nine times out of ten it is something that I would either be bad at putting in words or just on a topic that I do not like at all. Deciding my topic would be the best choice for me because when I write about something that I like I do way better than when I write about something that is assigned or given to me.
For me it doesn’t matter what I write whether it is creative or academic. I can write both easily and fluently. If I had to choose one that struggled with it would be creative. This is because sometimes it is hard for me to describe things that appeal to my senses like smell, touch, taste, hear and see. On the other hand, in my academic work as long as I pay attention in class and have some fairly good knowledge I can succeed with any kind of academic writing. My favorite genre to write in would have to be creative non-fiction because I have a really bad imagination. I struggle when it comes to thinking of original ideas to write about. Likewise, when I write creative non-fiction I can add my own spices and my own personal twist to something that really happened. Thus, making it easier for me to write.
The favorite writing piece I have ever done would have to be my most recent Personal Essay. I think that this is my favorite writing piece because I really put effort and thought into the essay. It also made me thing more of my grandpa and how he really changed my life because of his death. When I share my pieces with my peers most of them just nod their heads and say it is very good. I imagine it is because it is true. Most of my writing is very well written and I usually don’t get good feedback for that very reason. I feel that when I have a peer look at my work then they are just complimenting in which I could ask anyone to compliment my work. One writer that would have to inspire me would be J.K Rowling because I love how when you have the plot in a story figured out something twists, turns and makes the end unexpected so that you have to read the next novel.
Typing out my work would have to be easier than writing it out because my penmanship needs work, lots of work. When people try to read it they have to ask every twenty seconds what a certain word says. Typing on the other hand is very legible and easy to read. Also, I can type outstandingly fast as well, making it a win-win situation for me in terms of typing. In other words, if I had to choose one writing goal for the course of the year it would be for me to expand my vocabulary in terms of writing because it seems that most of the time I say the same words over, over and over again. I don’t want to have the feeling that I’m making my readers bored as they are reading my pieces. That is my goal that I would have for the course of this year.
