The spring semester started last week, right along with the new year. I made a goal for 2012 that involves doing a lot of writing, and then I'm also taking English 2010 this semester. This particular English class focuses on critical thinking and persuasive writing. I feel like I'm a moderately good writer -- good enough to get an A in a typical high school English class without learning much, but certainly not good enough to drift through this college class with a great grade. By the end of the semester (mid-April) my blog posts might sound less like rambling and more like professional writing. X3
Have you ever thought about how when you write, you're basically just putting a bunch of squiggles up for display and hoping they mean roughly the same thing to everyone else as they do to you? Not only do we resort to these desperate measures, we spend years in school learning how to do it better. Expressing ideas must be REALLY important to us. Or most of us, at least.
