Include short narratives to illustrate/support your description and analysis of your writing process. Be as detailed as possible and include elements that you look for in "good" writing (e.g., humor, descriptive language, illustrations/examples, thoughtful analysis, etc.). In addition to being descriptive, your essay should be reflective. What is enjoyable about your process? Painful? What works/doesn't work? What is essential to your process? What do you wish you could change? How has your process changed over time? Does your writing process change depending on the project? Is your process modeled/influenced by someone/something? My writing process is slow but rushed. I don’t think of myself as a good writer, so I don’t like to do it often. I’m very selfcritical, so I run at least three different programs to edit me while I write. I think good writing is very descriptive, but still to the point. It has humor and draws examples that the reader can relate to that keeps them interested. Good writing isn’t super wordy and hard to understand. Once I get a sense of what I want to write and how I enjoy how it just flows out of me. The most painful thing is the writer’s block I tend to get because I just feel completely blank in the brain and that makes it difficult to get things done on a deadline. Being rush usually helps with not having anything to write because I have a set amount of time and I try to push out whatever I can and then fine-tune it. I also write better if I have a list of things I need to write about/answer. Having a guide to write with helps things flow easier and it makes my writing seem natural. When I have a ton of time it becomes my worst enemy because when I’m able to take my time I have nothing to write about and I get stuck looking at a screen or piece of paper with a blank mind. I think being able to block out the world around me helps because I don’t lose focus as much. I wish could stop procrastinating, but I just think that is when I come up with my best stuff personally. I don’t think I’ve noticed a change in my writing other than my confidence in my writing ability. I do think my process changes depending on my project I’m working because I have a different mindset. I tend to think more creatively when I’m working on things that aren’t for school. But I usually have to keep things strict with how and what I write for school because they usually want my work to be extremely technical. I don’t write like anyone/thing else. I don’t think I really have a writing style. I usually write for my classes, and that’s about it. I used to write for fun, but it was hard for me to get the things I was trying to convey out. I was writing short stories and enjoyed coming up with new ideas all the time. But getting the ideas out of my head and onto the page was my biggest issue I came across. Then I hated the way I was writing, and it was nothing like how my favorite authors wrote, so I gave it up. It also took a lot out of me mentally and I got tired of it. I always thought id go back to it, but I don’t really feel the need to.
