Essay writing

Taking English 101 – Literature and English 103 – Composition and Style, I find myself struggling with the essay writing. I love the Literature studies and enjoy writing about the stories and plays. When it comes to Composition and Style, however, I am a flop. I will spend 3 – 5 hours per essay, researching and downloading key quotes and material. I will then spend 2 – 3 hours on brainstorming and outlining. It isn’t unusual for me to start writing and skip to the end to write my concluding paragraph. But then . . . I jump all over the place. I cannot seem to focus my thoughts and stay on path. My outline changes at least 3 or 4 times. Then I cannot solidify my thesis statement.

So if I can write stories, they must be rather boring and disorganized if this is any indication. Academic essay – ok. This argument/persuasive essay is tough. The tone, the wording, all is very difficult. I will defeat this dragon, however.



I am an aspiring writer coming into my writing career later in life. As an accomplished entrepreneur, wife, mother and grandmother, I bring a wealth of experiences to my writing. Loving challenges and change, I embrace this new path with my custom focus and involvement, starting with research and education. Believing that you can never stop learning has kept me young and fresh throughout my life. This new venture is no exception.
