My two writing myths that I chose to write about are ,writing does not require planning and writing is easy .Writing does require planning.

You don’t need to capture an audience with journal writing ,academic writing is so much different than I ever thought to be . there is different guidelines and formats that you have to learn and use in academic writing .i have been trying to read the university guidelines to writing and I will have to learn the APA style of writing .writing is much harder than I thought ,the myth being that writing is easy is just that a myth.This class has helped me overcome these myths about writing ,by teaching the correct information .It is surprising to me how I have always thought these myths were true ,I have never had an opportunity to know or read otherwise .Now that I am a student at the…

Fiction writing was my favorite in English class. I enjoyed writing about make believe because there are no restrictions and I did not have to think inside the box. I had a very creative and abstract imagination growing up. In elementary school, I was the girl with glasses and who always brought a journal…
