My writing process has been easy as long as I take my time with it. What usually works for me is grabbing a couple sheets of paper and just writing everything out on that, then I get on my laptop and just type what I wrote while editing my rough draft as I type. It's always worked for me.
With this second draft, I just threw out my previous draft. I started all over, still sticking to what I wanted to prove, but completely restating everything. I found it much easier to just start all over. After peer editing our zero drafts, I realized what I needed to accomplish as a story, not a definition. The prompt made it really easy to just define what literacy means to us an how it's had an impact in our life, in a story. My essay was just a long definition and so dry.
My biggest struggle was making it longer. I didn't want to seem like I was saying too much, doing a lot of repeating. So in my final draft, I need to find a more creative way in making my essay longer but not boring. I was much happier with this draft and will be more content with my final draft.
My strongest part of my essay would probably be my paragraph on how I explain education in general and that it's meant for everyone, not just a certain race. Peer editing has been SO helpful, it was a way to discover what I needed in my essay through someone else's eyes. It helped me bring out what I really wanted and needed through a little guidance.
When I turn in my essay, I hope to accomplish a sense of relief and confidence in my essay. I now know what I have in store for this class and what the professor looks for, so I'll be ready for the next
