August 6, 2018 Entry 1: Me, A Writer?Attitude:I feel as though this course will help me become not only a better writer but, also a betterlistening when it comes to listening to my patients. I will be able to interpret what they tell me and put itin a case file in a way that anyone that may read it after me will be able to read it and understand exactlywhat I was trying to say even if I am not around. I have always enjoyed writing and composition coursesall throughout my education journey, even as young as grade school, so I am confident that anything Ilearn will stay with me and make me a better writer than I already am. I wouldn’t say I’m too nervousabout any of the assignment or coursework, more prepared than anything to get it done with and undermy belt.Inventory:As a writer, I have learned that I go into a prompt very confident but, sometimes lose confidenceas I begin to write. I feel as though I can drift off and explain myself too much instead of getting right tothe point. I feel like this course will help teach me how to get right to the point without leaving out anyinformation or adding too much unnecessary information. As I writer I plan on proof-reading more andnot just submitting the first draft thinking it is perfect because, it most likely is not. I also, plan onplanning my writing more so I am not going into it blind and without a game plan of what to write andhow to write it.August 8, 2018 Entry 2: Correctness in WritingWhen reading an essay or any other form of writing the reader is looking for smooth transitionsso that they do not get confused.

It canbe distracting if the reader must continuously stop what they are reading and go back to see if theymissed something simply because the writer did not take the extra time to proof read their text. Justbecause it makes sense to the writer in their head does not mean it comes across the same way onpaper. They must write as themselves and then edit for the reader.As a writer my strengths have always been the ability to hold onto the reader. I am a bettercreative and personal writer than I am a professional or educational writer. Something about being ableto write about whatever I want to help me stay calm, it’s almost as if I get a little anxious when I mustprove a point or teach a topic. I feel that with last semester and this course by the time I finish I will be asconfident of a professional writer as I am a personal writer.
