Andrew Choi4/18/13Cover LetterDear Professor,This portfolio does not simply display a work of art, but it thoroughly exhibits the grueling and gradual process it took to complete that piece. As a writer, I did not transform into a great novelist, but I did become skilled at synthesizing and analyzing scholarly works. Throughout the course, I found myself discouraged and even disappointed at my own writing. I knew I was not a skilled writer coming into the course, and there were times where I felt extremely frustrated with the assignments. The constant writing and peer reviews felt at times excessive, but honestly without it I would not have been able to learn as effectively as I did. This writing seminar has allowed me to create a greater comprehension of my overall writing.One thing I struggled with throughout the year was following the guidelines given by the writing seminar. I had been taught for so many years how to write in a certain format that many times, I strayed away from the set structure. I’m grateful that this final paper consisted in a lot of drafts
