You’ve stumbled upon the culmination of four months worth of thoughts and words, on the topic of writing—more specifically, my writing. All of the papers have been revised, some more so than others. The assignment “WA2,” by far, got the axe the most. Unhappy with the paper and grade from the draft I turned in the first time, I decided my best course of action was to rewrite the paper entirely. I revised WA2 (and the others) again, after finding out it was going to be put into a portfolio. Which brings me to what I’ve learned this semester. I am a decent writer. I am a decent writer who still needs to do a lot of work to be a place where I feel comfortable with my ability to work in an academic/expository context. It’s really different, writing these here papers and writing a posey for myself. This brings me to another thing I learned, or was reminded of, and that is literacy (in any form) is something one must actively pursue and engage. I want to be smart? I want to learn? I want to get better, or get a better grade? I work for it. Like anything else in life, literacy must be wanted and it must be worked for. So I leave with what I’ve worked for/on, this semester. There’s nothing special you should know about it, or that I can tell you, before you read. I guess if I told you anything before you read my work, it would be that I don’t care for introductions. I’ll even admit I don’t always read them in books. I kind of feel guilty about it, but not totally. I once was reading a collection of poems, and I came across one poem with an introduction. It just struck me as really odd. Here someone had all this time to say what he or she wanted to say in the writing, and they didn’t. I’ll let you know, that rather than come back later and write an intro or add a prologue to my work, I’ll revise or rewrite. I wouldn’t want you skipping the intro and missing something big.
