  • Blog Post #3 - Murray introduced seven elements in the writing in “The Maker’s Eye”. The order of those seven elements are subject, audience, form, structure, dimension, development and tone.

  • Blog Post #3 - Donald Murray’s “The Makers’ Eye” hits all points on what a writer must have to have that amazing essay. One of those key aspects is tone.

  • Blog #3 “Be Your Own Story” - The world is cruel; there’s injustice and malice displayed daily.

  • Blog Post #3 - This week throughout the peer edit process I found it to be very helpful. Having someone besides yourself read your writing helps to know what you need to change, add, and get rid of. For example, my peer editor told me to talk more about my influential persons impact today and not just their past […]
  • Blog Post #2 - I 100% agree with Lamott’s piece “Shitty First Drafts”. When writing I always struggle to just start writing and then once I do I spend way too much time trying to perfect my writing, and I feel like many people can relate. He talks about how first drafts aren’t supposed to be perfect, matter of […]

  • Blog #3 - After reading “The Maker’s Eye,” I am about to relate to Murray’s point on writers having ego. Ever since I was little, writing was not my favorite thing to do.

  • Blog #2 - In the passage “Shitty First Drafts” written by Lamott, I agree with his ideas because a first draft is only the beginning of the writing process.

  • Blog 3 - I do agree with Murray’s  point that a writer need not always write multiple times or reread the draft several times. I also agree that  professional writers tend to go over several drafts over their head or going page by page.  I too most of the times tend to go page by page as it […]

You correct your first draft […]
  • blog3 - When I read the Phaedrus in the past, I always got the impression that Socrates and Thamus associated with remembering and wisdom as active actions and reminding and the appearance of wisdom as passive actions. What I mean by that, is that, for them, remembering and wisdom are things that have to be earned out […]
  • Blog #3: “The Makers Eye” - After reading “The Makers Eye,” I began to reconsider whether or not I shared similar feelings to that of an amateur writer.

  • Blog 2 - After reading Lamott’ s ‘Shitty First Drafts’ I do agree with the fact that first drafts are indeed a bit shitty. Mainly because of the fact that there a lot of ideas that we wish to express in a very short span. As a person who wants to be a novelist one day I too […]

  • Blog #2 - Reading “Shitty First Drafts” brought me a sense of comfort to know that other people (especially successful writers) are also making horrible first drafts.

  • Blog Post #2 - After reading Lamott’s “Shitty First Drafts”, I realized that not every writer is able to sit down, then pick up a pen or pencil and immediately have tons of words to be written down in mind.

  • Blog #2 - Reading Lamott’s article, “Shitty First Drafts”, made me realize a good writer does not always have to have an extra ordinary imagination or writing skills, but more importantly he must have the will and patience to complete his writing, no matter how many shitty drafts he makes. Every writer gets mind blocks, a period where […]
  • blog post#2 - From the article Shitty First Draft by Lamott, the writer used some examples from his friends and people he knows to introduce the first draft. Then he mentioned his experiences of writing the reviews for foods to explain why the first draft is important for everyone when they writing. This article let me realized that […]

  • Blog Post #2 - In Lamott’s “Shitty First Drafts,” writing a shitty first draft is encouraged. My high school English teacher once said that if your first draft is your best draft then there’s going to be a problem. I agree with Lamott when she says that the first draft should be the “child’s draft.” The first draft is […]

  • Test - This is a test
  • Blog Post #1 - After read Zinn’s Artists in Times of War, I agreed with the idea that being professional limits human beings to working within the confines set by their profession. Nowadays, everyone is categorized into different groups by one’s profession and we are not feeling strange or uncomfortable with being sorted into categories. For example, people reckon that […]
  • Blog #1 - In current society, where one’s value is determined by wealth and social status, it is common to look down upon artists. I’ve been quite familiar with this concept for a long time.

  • Blog Post #1 - In Howard Zinn’s “Artists In Times Of War,” he mentions that the saying “you have to be professional” restricts people to the confines of their profession.

Prior to reading the essay by Alex Reid, I shared similar thoughts […]

  • WOLFIE Blog #1 - The Alex Reid essay has opened up my mind in not just blogging, but writing as a whole.

Blogging is a different type of […]
  • Blog 1 - I’ ve read Kohn’s article “The Case Against Grades ” It reminds me something about grades. In my personal point of view, I think grades are not supposed to be the only way of measuring a person’s value, nor the way his or her fate should be decided in this modern era. Although grades still […]
  • Blog1[Panyu Xiang] - The ego of George Orwell When I firstly read Why I Write by George Orwell, I thought I learned the motivations of a writer.

We decided to […]
  • Blog #10 - I really enjoyed our last project. I felt like it was a perfect way to end a difficult semester. I enjoyed working with my classmates because usually I usually work alone so this was a good switch up. I thought the concept of the project was quite repetitive because we had to do something similar […]
  • The Skit - For the skimpy team decided to do work with “Y the Last Man”. Unlike the other stories we read as a class, my group felt that this book had the best premise. A world with no men and only woman got the whole class engaged. We wanted to use the aspect of the minority becoming […]

  • final blog post, forreal lol - My group  did a spin on “the lesson”.  Our goal was to take the position of white families who were opened to helping but didnt voice that concern because it was easier to be quiet.

  • Group Final Project: Adaptation Reflection - My group members and I thought that the passage, The Ethics of Jim Crow, would be a good text to do this project on because we felt that the message from the passage was still relevant to today.

  • Blog 5/6 - After a long semester of writing papers I felt that the final paper was  both entertaining and easier to write than the essays prior. I found it entertaining because we were able to put our imaginations into the essays. We were able to create our own side of the story and put our thoughts and […]
  • Waiting for the Barbarian Pt. 2 - I still don’t know how the author wants the audience to feel about the magistrate. The fact that he taking the girl home could mean he’s guilty for what he’s done to her, but it could also mean that he genuinely cares. The irony of when he tries to do the right thing and ends […]
  • Group Skit Blog - Our group chose to base our story about the comic Y: The Last Man. I’m not sure if there was a reason why the story was specifically chosen, but we just chose the story and went with it.

  • Waiting for the Barbarian Pt. 1 - In the beginning, we meet Joll and he comes in and we are left hanging as to why it is that he is there.

  • Group SKIT - For our group project, we decided to do “Y: The Last Man,” but instead we applied race to it and made it revolve around a guy who is a white guy and all of the whites are killed off. We started out by giving the main character a brother, who is, in fact, black, even […]
  • GET OUT - The movie “Get Out” was interesting in itself because of the fact that it uses magic to display racism. The movie was simply trying to tell us that racism still exists today and it may not be on full display as it was in the past, but its still going on. The scene when the […]
  • Glen Garry Glenn Avenger - My group and I came up with the decision to use the scene in which Blake goes on a monologue for the simple reason that it would be extremely easy to incorporate the cast of the Avengers into it. The wide variety of characters at our disposal made it easy for us to follow through […]
  • Group Skits - My group did our skit based on the short story, “A story of an Hour”. I had a lot of fun working with my group partners. At first me and one of my partners had a disagreement about who should play the main character. I wanted him to do it because he wrote the character […]

  • Group Project blog - My group and I picked the story “The Ethics of Living Jim Crow” for our group final project.

  • SKIT: LAST BLOG - Let me start by saying I enjoyed this assignment the most. When first being assigned to write a skit based on the stories or poems we have read in class I was a little annoyed and here’s why: I thought it was going to be a hard task and I also don’t like group projects. […]

  • Last blog: Skit - I decided on “The Standard of Living” because the story itself has a lot room for us to add our own idea while keeping the concept of the story the same. We decided that the game would still be the same with one millions dollars with rules that you must spend it on yourself. In […]
  • Final WOLFIE Post - Overall, WRT 102 was definitely a very eye-opening class. In high school I seldom ever wrote more than one draft and rarely had others look over my paper. However, now I’ve learned that writing is a process. You can’t expect to write the perfect paper in just one draft. Multiple drafts are necessary for improving […]
  • Final WOLFIE post - Over the semester, I have learned many things about writing.  I started off hating writing because of the stress I experienced when I wasn’t able to put my thoughts into words.  I used to always have a hard time organizing my thoughts and this course has helped me overcome this problem.  Each assignment was something […]

  • “The Maker’s Eye” by Donald Murray - Honestly, Until the last day of finishing my paper, I was still doing my revision.

  • About Lamott and Elbow - Both “Shitty First Draft” by Lamott and “Description Writing” by Peter Elbow are about how to write. They shows the processes when they write their own papers.

  • Final Wolfie Post - When I first enrolled in WRT 102, I felt that I was a somewhat confidant writer, but lacked the versatility in my writing style that made my writing my own.

  • Final Blog Post - By taking this class, the way I approach writing has changed for the better. I feel that I’m more patient and open-minded with the writing process. Before this class, I always just rushed my assignments to just get them done. Now I take more care in my writing rather than trying to bulldoze through it. […]
  • Final Blog - At the beginning of this semester, I thought this was going to be an easy class. As a sophomore in upper division classes, I thought my writing skills were on par with the average student. So I did not want to worry. I was quickly wrong. I received a very poor grade. As a result, […]
  • Annotated Bibliography - The annotated bibliography was very useful. In the beginning, I thought it would have nothing positive for me, and that I just needed to quote from the sources. But learning that I need to understand the sources I used, analyzing each document allowed me to show more connections in my argument essay.

However, after taking WRT102, not only did I improve on my writing, I also learned a lot about the issue of disability. Despite disability […]
  • Final Reflection - Through this class, I learned a lot about how writing can vary and expand from just literary analysis to more science based research papers and other styles of writing that could be useful to academic writing in the future. However, there was much more familiarity and comfort with the first paper and I was truly […]
  • Stasis Questions - Facts/Problems The issue is that disability is not always properly represented in children’s media however this is never prioritized because the importance of the media that children are always exposed to is debated (see debates over whether violence in children’s media and video games are negative or not). Movies that do have proper and respectful […]
  • Research Paper - Disney and other forms of children’s media have always fascinated me because some forms of media are so good at having good representation of all forms while others are utterly terrible.

There are so much to talk about from the film.   We’ll start off […]
  • Peer Review - The peer review process was an incredibly helpful process for so many reasons. At first, I was terrified of the idea of having someone go through and read and critique my work. After all, it was only a first draft. It was meant to be a way for me to map out my thoughts in […]
  • The Makers Eye - One of my favorite parts of The Makers Eye reminds me of how the writing process is similar to newtonian laws of motion. An object in a state of rest will stay at rest unless a large force changes that state and then an object in motion will stay in motion until there is a […]
