Problems in my writing

  • Identify a problem you have had in your writing this week and talk about what you will do next to try to solve it.

                  A problem I have found in my writing this week is using good language and better punctuation. I feel like I need to use better vocabulary, for example if I want to use the word happy I could use the word overjoyed. I feel like adding good vocabulary also brings out good voice and makes the story more interesting. By adding better punctuation you can have your piece flow better and it's easier for the reader to enjoy the writing. An example of a piece I feel could have better punctuation was my last writers craft. I felt like it was really good and I liked it a lot but I think the punctuation could have been a little better.

Question: Identify a problem you had in your writing lately and talk about what you will do next to try and solve it. 

So far this year we haven't done much writing at all for English. But in other classes I have done plenty of writing for other classes. So far this year I think my problem from last year has carried over and been the same for a number of years. Using enough punctuation. I feel that in a lot of my writing I should use more punctuation like commas and semicolons. I think this because of how my writing everyone in a while does not flow. And the adding of punctuation and other things would be a great thing for my writing. What I will do to solve my problem is to learn more about them and be able to execute them right.
