There is much that I have learned about myself as a writer and about my writing over the past semester in this class. I think that while I still have a lot to improve on, I have improved in some ways. I feel that I have gotten better at interviewing sources and making sure to get a variety and quantity of sources for each story. I also think that I have gotten better at getting good content for my pieces.
I think that I can improve on the overall quality of my writing. When I finish a story, I often feel like it is not as creative or ‘good’ as I would like it to be. I think that I have the mechanics of writing a good piece down but need to work on going that extra mile and making my story that much better.
I was surprised to find out that I am actually NOT alone in improving my writing. I think many other students in my class are also good mechanical writers, but we could all afford to improve on editing our stories and strive to produce the best possible stories that we can. I truly believe that every writer can improve on his or her writing. There are so many areas to improve in and there really is not a perfect writer out there (at least I don’t think there is…)
It’s been fun. So long for now!
