Writing as a Process Analysis Writing is a very unique process. Some people’s writing flourishes and really engages their readers, while many struggle through every writing assignment they encounter. There are various reasons that people give as to why many of today’s students have such a difficult time writing. Many even dread writing a paper in general. Barriss Mills, a chairman of the National Council of Teachers of English at Purdue University, writes an essay titled “Writing as Process” in which he gives various reasons as to why our students are such poor writers.
Judging by the cover of Mark Haddon’s, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, I did not think I would enjoy this novel. Though, as I began reading this feeling soon became a polar opposite. This is truly one of the best books I have ever read… and I haven’t even past page 79 yet. It is interesting that it is written in first person. It helps us as readers better understand Christopher but it gets confusing at times with all the riddles.
I really liked how the author wrote out the character of the young boy. She made the readers feel sorry for him because he was all alone, but then he brings out the gun and you then get a different perspective of him. This was a really good story, I enjoyed reading it and wished there was more to it. I will definitely remember this story for my final. ----------------------- High School
In the text “Me talk pretty one day” the tone is informal. I would call the writer’s tone informal for the reason that he throughout the text is using some random letters, to sort of outline how he feels when the teacher talks to him, and he does not understand her. We have an example to these random letters in the text:” Well you should have been vkkdyo more kdeynfulh.” (p.3 l. 115) Additionally the writer also expresses himself through humor. He uses a very casual language in the text, and also he uses some humorous terms, which makes the text funny and kind of pleasant to read. The writer starts
When you do this, it turns a boring topic into an interesting and fun essay for the audience. The author also talks about colorless words that they are words we use in everyday conversations, colorless words use are nothing and how student also use every day slang adjectives. He also added in their colorful words which means finding the right word in the right place, writers often struggle with this. I agree with the author on how we write essays, I must say everything he wrote in this story is true for me. I often have a hard time trying to figure out what words fit where to make complete sense of the sentences or paragraphs.
I could relate to Maya as in how he’s really nice and caring, and likes to have fun. This book wasn’t predictable you could never really guess what was coming next and that’s one of the best things about the author. I think Maya wrote the book to entertain people, while showing people that theirs always more in life, and that people should really make the best out of their lives. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy books and voice like the author has. It’s an amazing book and filled with funny enjoyable moments that will leave you reading wondering what’s next.
The switches from who is narrating the story makes the plot more intriguing and exciting for the readers. The author keeps the audience interested and never bored by switching the timelines and the setting, leaving them with no idea of what will happen next in the plot. The fact that half of the book is narrated by the author of it, gives an certain imitation of a non-fiction book. The writer is
I really liked this book because it was full of adventure and excitement. Once I started reading it I couldn't put the book down. It made me want to have my own 'Wishing chair' so that I could travel anywhere I wanted to go, even if it wasn't a real place. I liked the made up names such as Chinky, Twisty, The Slipperies, Mr.Grimm, Aunt Quick Fingers, Winks, Mr. Spells, Tricky, Cinders, and Mr. Blacky. The story made me a little nervous at times when I thought something bad was going to happen.

" This is an allusion to the Beatitudes in the Gospel Matthew. Literary allusions are also extremely popular. A lof of allusions refer to popular literary characters that are very widely known. Poets also allude to the plot of"Christy didn't like to spend money.
Here I was, a youthful 13-year-old going through books at rapid fire speed, but whenever a book ended I found myself feeling both satisfied and empty at the same time. I thoroughly enjoyed it but was terribly disappointed to see the characters and places I had grown to know, come to a close. It is this greedy want for an equally thrilling tale, that spurns young readers to pick up another book. Seeking to find comfort in another story that invokes the same feeling ensnares them into reading more and more and will continue to read one after another until they have had their
