What is my experience with writing so far?

What is my experience with writing so far, well it starts with my songs, poems and short story all published in one form or another. I am in middle of writing one book and two screenplays; one screenplay is a miniseries and the other one is for a remake of a series, both are from the 90’s. I read a lot and watch TV and movies; I am a love fiction of all kinds. If I write without anything in the background I tend to be slower, so I write with the TV on so I have a noise in the background. Or I will listen to Pandora internet radio while writing.
What do I think my greatest challenge is with the writing process; well I have to figure out just how to put the words on the paper. Now I have a program called dragon speak 12, which I use to get what I want down, because of my eye/hand disability. I have always had a problem writing notes and papers for my classes during school.
How do I feel when I write, well I feel like I am doing something to better mine and my family’s life in the future. I cannot say that I feel nervous or confident, but I can say that I feel good when I write. It is like a part of my mind is taking over for the part that doesn’t like to work all the time. It is funny really, to sit down and start typing on one of my things and end up working on all three of them in about six hours.
What tools will I need to grow as a writer, well I can see that my dragon speak 12 will be of great help, but I will utilize the resources that the school has more to help me grow also. I will be using the P.O.W.E.R steps and the bb app to help me also. I am also going to take time for breaks while I write so I don’t feel too bogged down with my writing. And raise my kids while I write, and even the baby.
These are my steps in getting my goals met with in my five…...

My Experience in Jaffna

...My experience in Jaffna. - Sandarangi Perera. For three long decades Sri Lanka was torn apart by a malicious war between the country’s majority and minority. This war made the northern part of the country inaccessible to most of us; its citizens. I myself thought that the people, culture and beauty of Jaffna and its surrounding areas would forever remain a mystery to me. However once the war ended the north opened its doors for the rest of the island to come witness all it has to offer. Even with this great opportunity at my grasp, yet I was not capable of visiting northern Sri Lanka as I simply never had the chance to. Luckily this chance was given to my fellow college mates and me by our college, the chance to see and experience the post war north. After much planning, excitement and enthusiasm we set off to Jaffna hoping to gain new experiences, to learn new lessons and to make memories as young individuals aspiring to be future journalists. Our purpose of going to Jaffna was to collect information that was needed to write the stories that each of us were assigned. The general topic assigned to the particular group that I belonged to was “agriculture”, and we were given the full freedom to choose a story we preferred under that wide topic. The task was to choose a story which has a news value. I instantly decided on writing my story about the grape cultivation in Jaffna, considering my love for the fruit and my curiosity about the process of its cultivation. On my......

What Qualities Have Led to Bec’s Success so Far?

...What qualities have led to BEC’s success so far? The success of BEC can be attributed to a number of factors. The organization has used segmentation, targeting and positioning strategies in order to diversify the market. For instance, the company has opened stores in Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada, and US. All the products sold by the company have been categorized into video games and recorded music. This offers the consumers variety and choice. BEC is also quick to seize business opportunities. For instance, BEC has invested heavily in information systems like the venture in online marketing. To ensure that the organization is not trapped in the cyclical nature of the expansion and contraction of sales video games, the company has devised a model for integration into all stores. ‘The game trading model’ ensures that users of the video games can exchange used video games for other videos on a rental basis. Instead of opening new stores for online distribution network, the organization uses the already existing ones. This has been a competitive advantage as consumers can access movies and videos simultaneously, thus cutting down costs. The management system at BEC is based on information systems where leadership plays a great role (Vankatesh, 2008). IS systems ensures that an organization makes effective decisions (Alwis & Higgins, 2001; Ajayi & Fadekemi, 2007). This ensures that decisions are easily made and the flow of information hindered. The IS at BEC has the capacity to......

My Worst Day so Far

...was a sun shining outside my window. I cut school. I thought the best thing to do is to go to the river with my friends. When I was going outside I saw a black cat crossing my path. I've already known that this day isn't going to be one of the bests in my life. Later it turned out that my worst fears were realized. I bought a bus ticket. When I got to the bus stop and I understood that I'm late, it really put me out of humour. Me and my friend decided to go on foot. It was a really hot day. After we had arrived to the river, I saw that I forgot my swimming trunks. Even though there's heat, water was cold and it's impossible to swim there without trunks so I decided to sit in the shade. I didn't feel to play football or voleyball. There's a place where we can rent a canoe or kayak near the river. I heard that there's cheap. And it really is! It's only 4$ per hour. I didn't think long and 5 minutes later I decided to boat down the river. But unfortunately bad luck was chasing me. After I had boated about 100 feets, the sun set, it starded raining. I knew I had to go back but boating upstream was really taft. I reached the land and I was walking alongshore having my canoe on tow. I had had (?) enough of it! In a minute I was failing (loosing power, is 'failing' correct?). Rain was even bigger than a few moments later. When I reached the harbour I was tired out and drenched to the skin. In a hurry I gave back a canoe. There's no-one near the river, even my friend hid somewhere. I......

My Experience

...My Experience Brianna Thornton PSY/230 September 20, 2013 Jennifer Owens My Experience Check Point: My Experience  The event that has changed my personality is the kidnapping, rape and attempted murder of myself at the hands of my ex-boyfriend during a psychotic break he had at the end of march of this year. I do believe that it has changed me greatly because I am now a person that will not go out unless I have to, I will not make phone calls unless it is absolutely necessary, I hardly laugh, smile or find good in the world anymore. I used to be fun loving, trusting, and out going, and now I can not even go out of my “safe house” to get a job let alone get groceries or something that I need from the store. I have changed my whole demeanor and cut out all my friends but a select few for fear of him finding me again.  My personality is due to environmental these days because of the event that has just happened but I do believe that the person I once was is due to my genetics. My parents were outgoing, fun loving, and understanding people. They were trusting as I used to be. I feel that this incident was very contributing to my sequestering of myself. I am not sure I will ever get “me” back. As far as my personality goes my humor is gone, the love that I had for life has slipped away and the trust, and zest for everything else is absolutely gone. I do as I have to in my daily life to survive. I think that your environment can be and is a determining factor to your......

Far from being a student; my daily routine has been changed into something unusual for me. I have to wake up early in the morning, prepare myself for the long day ahead, and give out the best upon my working hours. I will be working here for 300 hours; it may take a month and a half, and I’m just on my day. And within those days I already learned a lot of things, more than what I expected. I came to realize the importance of on-the-job training (OJT) to a students’ life. I learned a lot from my experience as an On-the Job Trainee. First of all, I’m very much gratified for the support and understanding of my superiors especially on times when I committed mistakes. More than any learning thought in school, I learned to be with others, to work with people. I learn also to listen to my seniors, even though at times I can’t understand they instructions, I also learn to accept criticism and be apologetic for my mistakes. And also they particularly impart in me what I must know in making use of corporate resources and corporate values. But not all OJTs are as lucky as I am. Not all have a wonderful experience, and that’s the bitter truth. Sometimes some are hired just to do some sort of stuff, worst of all, is when they’re tasked to do......

The Greatest Experience of My Life

...Avisek Parajuli The Process of Writing Prof. Michael Lally Narrative Essay 11/2/2013 The Greatest Experience of my Life “The biggest risk in life is not taking any risk.” Mountaineering is a risk, a danger , fun and a learning about life. It was a feeling of great joy and achievement at the summit - a triumphant success - after overcoming danger, fear, and risk of death. With the purpose of having fun and spending our time, my two cousins, Avinash and Avijit. and I planned to go for trekking to the world’s biggest mountain pass, Thorung La Pass. It was a breathtaking experience. In the beginning of our journey, it was fun. But ‘danger’ and ‘risk’ is a part of every trekking and we soon came to know this as we went higher altitude. Also the immature leadership and dispute between us led to the problem that we had never faced before. “How far is it now?” Avinash asked in a hushed tone. ”Probably, 2 hours more.”. I replied. It was the first day of our trekking and we were tired walking continuously for 7 hours. The weight of the trekking bag and boots added the exhaustion making every one of us look pale. We were all full of sweat. It was soon going to be night so we had to walk fast. Suddenly the weather became a bump on our road. The weather turned blustery. It started lightening and thundering with heavy squall. We were in dilemma how to handle the situation. But then I saw a small hut in the jungle, we......

Traumatized by a Reading and Writing Experience

...and Writing Experience As a kid, most of my early childhood memories about learning to read and write were traumatizing for me. I went through most of my school days disliking reading and writing. I was not extremely confident in my ability to perform and keep up with my peers. I felt like I could not do anything right. One school morning I recollect, it was my first day as a third grader. In a class, all I could smell was crayons and glue as I sat in my desk. Then I hear my teacher calling my name in a classroom activity to read aloud. I took a deep breath and began to read, then realized I could not pronounce must of the words in the book. I was pausing unnecessarily and stuttering out the words. The passage was small but seems like hours had passed as I read slowly. My palms were sweating and my voice was cracking. The students were laughing softly and huffing and puffing, expressing how impatient they were with me. My teacher did nothing to control the students. I finished reading then I put my head down quickly and cried. I was awfully emotional and felt worthless. I was consequently embarrassed and felt humiliated. This teacher was the worst ever I thought to myself. I don't think she knew how to handle this type of a problem. My teacher sent a note home to my parents telling them that I need tutoring for reading. I took the letter home to my parents to read and sign. I felt like my parent would take up for me. Instead, I was disciplined and scolded for my......

My desire is to get into nursing because I have always shown a growing interest into it. It strikes me as a worthwhile and satisfying career to choose. Meanwhile that has always been my interest; I decided to join an ROP program involving the Medical field. So far being in that program has been my biggest accomplishment because through that program I got to work in an actual clinic called Health Works Medical Group Center. I was in that program for about two months, but in just those two months I acquired many skills that I could use in real life. I learned the basic skills and far more than that. It is satisfying to know that if anyone chokes on food of any type and I am there to provide CPR for them. Knowing that I can aid someone in a chocking situation makes me feel honored, to be able to help out. Assisting individuals is something that I have always enjoyed doing not just physically but mentally. I feel like it is what I am good at doing, I feel good about doing so.

Reflecting on My Experiences with English and Writing!

...Growing up, I had always enjoyed reading and writing. English had never been a problem for me so much as math had been. I had a love for literature. I've always loved reading books. You'd have to pull me away just so I'd put one down. So you can imagine when my fourth grade teacher Ms. Lux said, “you possibly could be held back another year, because you're not performing well in English.” My heart had dropped within that moment. I felt as if I were a failure. I felt as if I, me, someone who had a love for English, was not good enough. I could not understand. I felt rejected. How could I, someone who had enjoyed reading so much, be told that I may not be going to the fifth grade, because of my English scores? I felt in every ounce of my bones that that accusation could not have been right. It was preposterous. She put me through a series of English tests. Testing my abilities from comprehension to grammar, I felt that that this was unfair. I felt that she was singling me out. For what reason I have no clue to this day. Now I had always been a well-behaved kid. I never got into much trouble during my youth years. From the moment I entered her classroom, I felt as If she had a personal vendetta against me. Why was this happening to me? I cried myself into one of the greatest stories I had ever read. It was of the most intriguing adventurous stories ever.

What Is Literature Writing?

...The term 'literary writing' calls to mind works by writers such as Shakespeare, Milton, or Wordsworth; definitive examples of all that the term implies. We instinctively associate the term with characteristics such as artistic merit, creative genius, and the expression of mankind's noblest qualities. In this essay I will explore some of the characteristics of this kind of writing. Literary works are primarily distinguishable from other pieces of writing by their creative, or artistic intent. A piece of literature differs from a specialised treatises on astronomy, political economy, philosophy, or even history, in part because it appeals, not to a particular class of readers only, but to men and women; and in part because, while the object of the treatise is simply to impart knowledge, one ideal end of the piece of literature, whether it also imparts knowledge or not, is to yield aesthetic satisfaction by the manner of which it handles its theme. [1] The writer of this passage emphasises the distinction between writing of didactic purpose and literary writing which has that other, aesthetic, dimension. In fundamental terms literature is 'an expression of life through the medium of language' [2], but language used more profoundly than when used simply to convey information. The following two extracts, for example, both describing one partner's response to marital problems, are different in both their form and their intent: Many critics date the crumbling of their...

Writing Experience

...exsit for writing. The only way to increase your level of writing is to keep writing, day after day and year after year. The first time when I touched with writing was in the period of my primary school. I have written hundreds of essays for tests, homework, and practices for almost 10 years and I am still writing now. At the beginning of the third year of my primary school my teacher asked us to write a journal every day. For the first few days I am interested in it, but as time went through, it really drived me crazy, because the life was almost the same during 24 hours one day and seven days one week. Most of my classmates complained it is hard to write different journals every day, it was easy, however, our teacher said you can do some observations around you and your community and do not limit yourself. So I got the first key element of the writing-observation. My journal was admired by my teacher as I did good observations and I was introverted when I was a child, that is easy for me to express my emotion into the paper. Journals also made me understand that “practice makes perfert”. After years of growth, my writing skill was updated, but the standard of writing was also uping. The teacher in middle school was more strict with students’ essays than the one did in primary school. I felt unprecedented pressure from each class, especially writing class. Seldom can I get appropriate ideas for an essay even I did a lot of surveies. I consulted my teacher what I......
