April 19, 2018ENTRY 1:Me, A Writer?Attitude:I enjoy writing, but I hate being graded because it makes me nervous about whatmy grade could be. I believe when I am nervous it can affect my performance on a test, quiz, orgraded essays like this. I have always done better on classwork because I know it’s not a biggrade and I’m not under that much pressure. Also, when I’m under pressure I make silly mistakesthat I usually wouldn’t make. Although it still makes me nervous when I’m being graded. I thinkit could affect my grade because it has before.Inventory:I am an independent learner, so I would learn better if I studied or worked alonerather than in a group. I am also a pragmatic, spatial, rational, and concrete learner. From thisquiz I learned that I am an organized writer and I also, like to work though the steps in thewriting process. As a spatial learner I can visualize things easily such as descriptions of physicalobjects and places. As a writer I would like to improve my vocabulary and to make my writingmore engaging. I would like for my vocabulary to expand because with better words I couldmake a more interesting story.April 23, 2018ENTRY 2:Correctness in WritingEvaluation:Incorrect grammar, spelling, and punctuation can all greatly affect the relationshipbetween the writer and the reader. Having incorrect grammar, I can misinterpret what the writeris trying to say. If I have spelling errors, there is a good possibility the reader will not understandwhat I am trying to say or write. If I don’t know the difference between punctuation marks thereader might misunderstand the emotions or feelings in the story. For example, I use anexclamation mark instead of a period; an exclamation mark indicates that I am yelling or veryloud. If I was writing a bibliography on someone and I made errors, it would affect mycredibility. Making errors would make it difficult to be convincing.Every writer has their strengths and weaknesses. I think some of my weaknesses as awriter is my vocabulary and keeping the reader interested. For example, it’s hard to keep thereader interested when I like to base my essays off facts. Some of my strengths are coming upwith ideas fast and brainstorming. Imagination is a very good strength because I can come upwith multiple ideas before I start to write my essay.April 23, 2018ENTRY 3:Prewriting and Thesis StatementBrainstorm:1. Facebook2. Snapchat3.
