My experience in completing assignments 1.1 to 4.1 for my English 1000c class helped me understand myself and my method of writing. I realized that I have a unique style of writing; however my writing still needs improvement. I learned to analyze things more critically while writing about personal experiences. I also understood that it is better to try and write a paper myself than buy essay from custom writing services. In doing so, I realized how I grew as a person and how my environment shaped the person I am today.
Taking my experiences of writing into consideration I have come to an understanding of what writing truly is. I believe that writing is a process and can only be considered "good writing" if proper steps are taken. According to a book entitled ESL Composition by Dana Ferris and John Hedgcock, the following steps must be completed to achieve a writing work: prewriting, planning and drafting, rewriting and revising, feedback, incubations and revision, editing and polishing, and finally publishing. In addition to these steps, good writing must express a clear point, be tightly structured, grammatically and syntactically correct, substantive, and interesting.
