Writer's Journal #17

In my middle and high school English classes I would write to a rigid structure. I would first put an introduction paragraph; then I would only use 3 body paragraphs, that always started with the words “first”, “second”, and “last”. My conclusion would state verbatim my thesis, and then repeat the ideas of the intro paragraph. While I still use this method in a way, I have learned to be adaptable and write differently with the task at hand. One thing that has stood out to me was the fact that some essays can be out of order( for example have a body paragraph first). As I learned from peer review, I decided to add these ideas to my own writing, which changed me overall as a writer. These changes have improved my writing by widening the scope of what I could write on. Before, I was mainly proficient in strict, confining, persuasive essays. Now, from these changes, I am able to encounter more challenging assignments, like a literary analysis paper, or even some provided in this course, like paper 1. Because of my changes to my writing, my reading was able to also change, as I was more receptive to oddly formatted literature. Because my ability to understand literature I knew more; this caused my understanding of the world to increase.
