I'm Ready, Are You? Essay

857 words - 4 pages

It has been many years since I have taken a writing class in a college setting. Before English 43, I would’ve described my writing skills as novice, but I feel that this class has given me the tools to successfully advance and excel in English 49. Given the fact that I have gained the tools, experience, and confidence in my writing through English 43, I am without a doubt primed for the English 49 curriculum.

One of the many essay formats we learned to write was a process essay. Previous to this class, the only process writing experience I had was done in a bullet format.

My experience in process writing is validated by my professor’s comment on my process essay I wrote. Professor Forbes wrote, “VERY well done. I am impressed! You really nailed the structure and the process is complete.” That specific essay was later chosen to share with the class to help better illustrate the proper structure of a process essay.

I am personally most pleased with my department exam. On the department exam, I received a 95% score due to my ability to write a strong thesis statement and topic sentence. This is important because although each essay targets a different idea, the experience of writing helps bring all skills together. Whether you are writing a process essay or argumentative essay, you find yourself utilizing the basic building blocks of writing through the many different tasks assigned.
My confidence has grown exponentially since the beginning of...
