I have learned many writing processes in my life as a student but the writing process I used to write both formal essays this semester is simple. First all I do is sit down and during my draft of the essay I get all of the words down onto the paper. I try to meet at least ¾ if not all of the word count in the draft. Then after I am done with the draft I go back and reread the prompt and the draft to make sure all of the information included is relevant to the prompt. Then I make sure I have resources with me while making my second draft (books, in class handouts, etc…). I make sure while completing the draft to keep my ideas focused especially when integrating outside sources and ideas into my writing. I have completed all but one phases of my writings processes but every other time I met all my deadlines and word counts. The quality of my work has been good, some of the best I have produced so far at the university. That does not mean there is no room for improvement however as I am always open to critiquing my work. Furthermore I would like to be able to integrate my ideas with others more effectively. I feel as though the quality of my idea development has improved immensely since the first semester. At first I was just writing to complete assignments but now I am writing with a process to better myself as a writer and critical thinker. My work quality has improved a lot as well, I guarantee you would see immediate results if you took an essay from the first semester and put it next to either or my essays from this semester you would immediately see a noticeable difference in the quality of the work. Another important part of my growth in english 123 is just simply continuing to turn in all of my assignments that are completed thoroughly before the deadline and taking advantage of every time we are allowed to revise our products. In conclusion I am extremely satisfied with my writing process and how it has developed over the course of my time here at the University of New England and I am also proud at being able to have almost all of my assignments turned in before or on the day of the deadline.
