Reflect on your own writing--your attitudes toward it, your style, your positive and negative experiences with writing. What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? After considering this, I just want you to write reflectively about how you would like to grow as a writer this year. Yes, this is technically an assignment, but I really want you to consider this. This goes beyond me merely assigning things for grades. Set goals for yourself now so that, come May, you can look back on this year as more than a year you survived, but as a year that you took advantage of having the opportunity to get a good education.
There is no word limit for this blog--you will be graded according to the thoughtfulness of your response.
Due tomorrow, Wednesday, by 8am!
PS your last timed writings (from last week) really did improve across the board. What an encouragement!
