audience. It incorporated dialogue relating to a problem and challenged the writer to create anargument and provide suggestions for readers apply what is being discussed to their lives. Forexample, my conclusion states what is possible for readers based on what I discussed. “Every
Waugh 7moment you are able to ‘create’ verbally, physically or mentally, can be taken to your fulladvantage.” WP2 challenged me to read a relatable essay on an issue and discuss why it isimportant while engaging readers. WP3 challenged me to use resources and research to discuss adebated social issue and convince readers to agree with me. This was the most time consumingand difficult of the writing projects but had the most benefits. It resulted in me looking more intodepth, being thorough, and considering varying views of an issue. I was able to formulate aquestion and answer and conclude in an appealing and meaningful way. I learned to have moresubstance within my writings. This course showed me that writing is important but it is moreimportant to be a writer.Writing is important because it has the ability to influence actions as well as thinking andchange can originate from it. The reading assignments discussed highly debated issues andoffered suggestions to readers. For example “On the Fear of Death,” by Elisabeth Kubler Ross,discusses death and how it is handled in the past compared to now and asks readers to determinewhether or not we are becoming more human or less human. Also, in the essay, College is aWaste of Time and Money,” by Caroline Bird challenges readers with a decision of going tocollege or doing something else due to the disadvantages she discusses. In addition to these, theessay, “What Should a Billionaire Give-and What Should You?,” by Peter Singer explains thebelief that we ought to give more if we are able to and if we don’t then it is a moral failure whenthose who are able to give the bare minimum or more do not. This reveals to me the potentialwriting holds. Writing can stimulate belief systems, interests, mentality, actions, and motivationin a detrimental or, preferably, beneficial way. Writing is expressive and a remedy to ease theminds of individuals passionate about topics that affect them or others. It is an art form. Thekeyboard is the paintbrush and the blank document is the canvas waiting to be put up for display.
Waugh 8Writing can be used for multiple reasons whether it be for for academic purposes, self reflection,entertainment or something else.In conclusion, my overall experience of the course was enlightening and revolutionaryto my comprehension of writing in a substantial way. Despite the many adversities, the coursewas enjoyable and impacted my thought process and mentality towards writing in a positive way.
