It feels like this year has been going on forever! I have wrote over 40 pages of writing this “school year” (not including all 53 letters I wrote), which to me seems a lot. The pieces, Three Ways to Help Improve the Health of our Ocean and Does Woodside Value the Pig Scramble are the ones that exceeded my expectations and they are the writing that I’m most proud of.
Working on Three Ways to Help Improve our Oceans took a long time to finish and because of that, it got a bit tedious at points. But in the end, the article was 5 pages long, and it was in way more depth then I thought it would be.
I’m proudest of my editorial Does Woodside Value the Pig Scramble because it was published in the Almanac (a local NEWSPAPER!). It was my first publication ever and a lot of people read it, agreed with me, and from what I can gather enjoyed it (except for the Mounted Patrol 🙂 )!
When I started writing this year, my ideas weren’t fully developed in any of my projects. Also, there were a lot of structural problems in the text, and I didn’t even use any cool fonts (something must have been wrong with me)!
Over the past year, I’ve not been writing in circles as much because my organization is successful. My writing has better word choice and it’s not always organized chronologically. In my opinion first, then, next, after that, finally writing is boring.
I need to work on being concise in my writing while not taking 3 hours to do so. But overall, I’m impressed with the progress I made! 🙂
