Ironically this paper hardly contains a trace of my actually writing style. This is mainly because I am very unmotivated by the subject of self reflection and I knew going in that there was not going to be any profound discoveries in it. While this may be just a bad excuse it is still the truth. My grade school and high school had almost no effect on my writing style. It comes almost entirely from people that I have met and the works that I have read. This paper was also difficult to write because to be honest the class did not have a real effect on my writing style. The problems that I mentioned in this were things that I already knew about going in. What I did take from the class, however, is learning about rhetoric and being able to put names to the ways that I use language. This will be valuable for me in the future when I analyze other people and what they are saying. The best thing that I got out of the class was writing the papers themselves. Practice makes perfect and if I am to continue to advance myself I need to practice my writing whenever I can.

My writing style perhaps only unique because it works for well for me. Over the years it has had many influences and it is always evolving. During the last few years it has grown the most and I am sure that this is just the beginning of that growth. In my early writing days I cannot remember a time when it was necessary for me to write well or a time that it was critical that I write it at a higher level. During high school I came into contact with a very intelligent friend. We emailed back and forth and I was blown away by his writing style. It was elegant, thoughtful, and he commanded a brilliant vernacular. Not to be out done I wrote back in the same lofty, semantic heavy, and metaphoric voice he had given me.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
