Hello class, and welcome to the blog.
In this first opportunity for a blog post, you’ll to discuss our relationship with writing. Some of us really don’t care for it, some of us don’t mind it, some of us might be trying to make a career out of it. Tell us what you like or dislike about writing. Keep in mind that there are several modes of writing—research, creative, journalistic, etc—and you might enjoy one of these forms while hating another. Does your relationship with writing reflect your relationship with reading? How Is writing something you do for fun? does your educational background affect your relationship to writing? Have your past writing teachers been nurturing or discouraging?
You don’t have to address all of these questions, but please feel free to use them as a jumping-off point for other facets of writing in your life. Also please include in your post some brief coverage of your last writing class, which I’m guessing for most of you was ENC 1101 or an AP class in high school? What do you feel you learned well from that class? In what areas of writing are you lacking confidence or would like to improve?
Like most weeks, your post should be around 200 words. More than that is certainly fine.
