With my paper almost all completed i feel very tired of typing. I have typed so much with all of the revision and rereading the paper it has just wore me down. But with all of this practice i think that i have written a successful essay. My idea of the topic has definatly changed over the nine weeks simply because i didnt know very much on the topic but now i do my nout look changed. Before i thought every one was the same that went to prision but in a different light they are all different. I thought my topic was a very good one and had allot of information around it.

This past few weeks have been allot of reading the same material. Its a good thing i guess so that we can learn to edit and proof read, its allot opf reading. I know my essay like the back of my hand could almost recite it word for word with out looking. I like it because im real familiar to my topic and if any body has questuions i would defanietly be able to answer them. This term has really opened me to writng and reading all together. Befrore i wasnt into it very much but after 18 weeks of writing and editing its not so bad. Comp 1 and Comp 2 back to back has made me a sronger writer for sure and now i catch my self free writing all the time more than i ever knew.

I like that we can do peer reveiws it gives us a chance to proof read other students work. Even though its a student doing the proof reading and not a teacher or professor does not make it any less quality editing. I beleive that it helps every body, and all should try befor knocking it. I remember last term when i was introduced to this techinque, i thought it was great and a very good idea. When i was goin over somebodys rough draft i noticed that they didnt use any quotations and this was an informative paper so there should of definetly been some. I wrote him back and let him know he didnt use any references to back up what he was saying, i guess it was a type of plagerism, so i was glad to be the first to catch it before a professor.

The last six weeks have been a breeze. Can hardly think that the term is almost over. I have been dealing with homework and discussion board everyday im almost tired of typing. But i know that its all for the better so i keep going. This term has been a little easier than my other terms not sure why but it has. I look forward to next four weeks and hope to make a good grade.

My personal writing style is by doing a freewriting session and then making an outline. These are about the only two steps i get to and then i just repaet them until i get something i like. I also like to brianstorm it helps relevie some ideas that have yet not come out. Writing to me is an academic challenge , im not much of a writer and dont like to write much any ways. When i need to do so i do put my mind to it and try the best that i can. School has helped me from the time i was in the first grade all the way up to now and the future. School helps me prioritze my day to be the most succesful in what ever i do.

To me plagerism is a very serious deal. Rather your in school or the work place you should always give credit where credit is due. I havent personally been a victim of plagerism and if it ever happened im not sure on how i would handle it. I do know if it happened at school i would contact my academic advisor and professor and have them handle it. If it was at work i probally would confront them and if that didnt work i would contact the supervisor. Citation is very professional and a must have in soceity.
