Maggie McDonald ENGL 251- The Essay MJ Iuppa December 9, 2001 Reflective Essay This semester in this class I have learned that I most definitely like personal narrative style of writing the best. I actually learned that between this class and my Intro to Creative Writing class because between these two classes, I have written every type of writing that there possibly is. I wrote everything from an informational essay, to an analytical essay, to a monologue, to fiction pieces this semester. I can find my "writers voice" most easily when I am writing a personal narrative. They're more fun for me and I am able to get into them more and really give great detail so that the reader can really understand what I'm trying to say.
I was able to share with them my writing easily and let them read it or have me read it aloud. It was when we had to start sharing with new people that the feeling of insecurity started to come back to me. I'm always afraid that people are going to laugh at my writing and think that I am not a good writer. My favorite reading of the whole semester was the Diana Hume-George piece (On Seat Belts, Cocaine Addiction, and the Theory of Germ Disease). I thought that was the best piece to read, and I believe that was one of the pieces that we started out with. I likes the little exercises that we did in class - where you would just have us write for about 15/20 minutes about some totally random thing.
I would like to say that for my product that I choose, I could not find any consumer reports. I spent most of the day looking. But I still thought that it was a great way to get into something that you normally don't think about being writing material. My least favorite assignment this semester was the comparing and contrasting of two stories. I usually don't have a problem with doing this type of essay, but for some reason it was causing me problems this time and I could not get what I wanted to say out in the words that I needed to say them in. Overall this semester, even though it was a very tough semester for me personally, I enjoyed this class a lot and I feel as if I have learned a lot of great things that will help me with my writing in the future.
