Journal 15: The End

English 3231, Expository Writing, was a challenge from the get go: writing genres is not a simple task. At first, I wasn’t writing up to the course’s standards. I committed a lot of mistakes in my works, I wasn’t using my full potential when writing and it was becoming noticeable in my papers. My mind was not really in this class. I was in the middle of a transformational phase and time wasn’t exactly abundant in my life. However, like I’ve said before, I don’t like to make excuses.  I worked harder during the last half of the semester to improve the areas I know I’m not as good at. Now that the course is about to end, I believe I’m a better writer than I was in August.

Like I mentioned before, writing genres is no easy trait. A lot of effort and passion has to be put into all of the papers in order for them to be A papers. Nonetheless, the one thing that really makes me proud of my work is that when I wrote, I wasn’t thinking whether or not my papers were A papers or B paper or C papers: I wrote what I wanted to write. Obviously I tried to follow the guidelines for the different papers and I know that sometimes I didn’t follow them completely. However, I’d fun with them and I have no regrets regarding my papers though I still think I need to practice writing conclusions. Overall, I’m happy with my performance and I hope the techniques I’ve learned during this course will help me in my future professional career.
