My process section of word press includes all my rough drafts to my essays. This section is to show how I first started when brainstorming to write an essay. Most the first drafts are basic outlines to what I was thinking. The second drafts include more detail and the third draft is when I am nearing the finish product with evidence. When viewing my drafts you will be able to see how I may writings started to become stronger. Thanks to peer editing I was able to strengthen my essays with the feedback I received. I enjoyed editing others work because I was able to may get some ideas on how to approach an idea. Also, getting advice from a different perspective allowed me to understand what others would get from my writing. With all the feedback I was able to write good essays. What I took into consideration was the paramedic method at first I did not believe it would work, and then it did and created strong sentences.
Each essay was about something different which allowed us to see what our weakness in every topic was. I was able to figure out that I have a hard time placing quotes where they should be to prove my point, but after writing the first couple drafts and essays it became easy. The easiest essay to create was the first one because the topic came to me instantly while the second one was challenging I changed my thoughts over and over. Group led discussions always help me get ideas of what to include in my essay and what quotes to use.
For the first essay, I made several mistakes I put my thesis in the wrong spot and had a lot of run on sentences. The second essay was I had got the outline correct just I struggled with detail and consistency. The third essay I enjoyed because I was able to compare and contrast two books. Finally the last essay it my favorite because I am allowed to basically write about anything as long as it is appropriate. So many ideas came to mind but I decided to analyze a song and tell how it relates to me. Each prompt to an essay explained what was expected. I read the prompt at least three times before posting a final draft: once before writing, second time while writing and, after rereading my essay.
The amount of effort it took to write each essay shows in the drafts and the final drafts. Along with my rough drafts is my diagnostic essay, which I did not do so well on. With the diagnostic essay I included a revised version. The diagnostic was to see how well we are as writer timed. I get nervous when being timed to do something and then lose my train of thought. I can see how much my writing has improved from the writing to the now and I hope everyone else can as well.
