Reaching one of my goals

  • Have you made any progress toward reaching one of your writing goals?
I don't think I have made any progress in one of my writing goals. Which I don't think I even will because it's not like I sit down and practice writing in my free time. Maybe it would get better but probably not. If I have any free time I watch tv it's more interesting.

Fighting to become respected

One thing I did in my writing this week is that I re read the whole thing and fixed everything I saw and then I read it again. I choose that idea because that's the way I can see some of the mistakes not all of them. It worked alright I think I got most of the errors and made it make more sense. Next something I will do next is I have no idea.

Reflection question for writers blog

Write about a prompt in your writers journal that you really liked. What did you like about it. How would you develop it if you were to revise it into a longer piece.

A prompt that I really liked was the one that we had to do for that test that everyone had to write about. I liked it because it was a story about my family and my dad. I liked that because it was about my family so I knew the story very well so I could kinda play around with what I wrote about and how I wrote it and also how I told it. I liked that I was the one telling the story from my point of view but at the same time I knew how it ended. Something I would do to revise it is make it longer, put some more voice into it and organize it a little better. At some points it kinda went onto a different part of the story before I wanted it too so I could change that. I could change the order of it a little bit. I could have it looked at to make sure all the conventions were correct like spelling and grammar. To make it longer I could add in some specific details and maybe some quotes.

Writing goals

1st blog, writing goals

One of my writing goals is to get an 80 or above. I'm going to get this by trying hard and getting help when I need it. Maybe go to the writing center. Another goal is to have more details and word choice in my writing such as essays. I am going to achieve this goal by asking miss Leavitt for help and really working hard on my writing. Going to the writing center could help me with that. One more goal of mine is to have the length and voice in my writing. How I'm going to get this is to maybe use words I don't really know or don't use very often.
