Although brainstorming is a critical process, I do it in my brain due to the fact that in my brain, I know what to write about right after I get my assignment. Like my instructor, I think about it for a few days, maybe three or four. Then, I work in the best of my ability. While my brainstorming is going on in my head, simultaneously my brain outlines my text for me. I get the rough conception in my head and progress it into actually writing.
* Show it to others and ask for suggestions. * Step 1: Prewriting Think * Decide on a topic to write about. * Consider who will read or listen to your written work. * Brainstorm ideas about the subject. * List places where you can research information.
116) The first step, “Prewriting to Find and Focus Ideas”, is where the writer decides on a topic on which to write about. The writer will also narrow the topic to avoid producing an essay that covers too broad a material with not enough specific information. The aurthor will need to determine an audience and point of view during this stage of the writing process. All of this together is part of the writing process and gives the writer direction and fosters creativity. After one has completed the prewriting process they should begin developing their thesis statement.
Disappointed as I was I realized its not always the subject as much as it is your form and process that gets the grade I learned to pay more attention to my technique and process. When writing an essay or paper I tend to get nervous, scared and even intimidated. I often question if I’m using correct grammar, punctuations and form. Inexperience usually gets the best of me and I freeze. I remember when writing was fun, but it feels more like a chore to me now then
After answering all those questions I will be reading a lot about that specific area and take notes, interview people who have knowledge about what I am writing, do a research about it and above all get advice from my professor. Writing is a lifelong practice and it can be a challenge for someone who just starts to learn about it. I believe the biggest challenge for me will be to understand what the audience expects from my paper and adjust the content
However this was not always easy because if you made a mistake there was no way to fix it but to write it over again or use white out. With the computer though, mistakes could be made and fixed before I print it out. These mistakes could be solved within seconds by doing a spelling and grammar check. Also the computer I can save my work so if something happens to the first copy another copy could easily be made. With the typewriter and plain old writing it if the original copy was damaged you had to write it over again.
If I am having a conversation in person or by email, I will understand the meaning by using the words in my everyday life. How might this plan help you accomplish your reading goals? This plan will help me accomplish my goals by building my vocabulary, helping me to be more focused with my studies, and will have more knowledge about many different topics. Adding more words to my vocabulary is beneficial to me because I will be able to understand more of what my family, friends and co-workers are talking about. It will also help me with my studies, and also when I have to write a paper or presentation.

I may also need, notes which I made in class, computer to use to research from and a one to one tutor to help me guide me to make a timetable to organise how and when I can do my work during the week.

Although I still have and always well have a learning disability, I’ve find that with the technology of today I don’t have too many of these problems that I had back then. My learning disability affects me in many ways such as; reading, spelling & writing. For example: I have a hard time reading a book that has big vocabulary words. Also spelling is hard for me because I can’t visualize certain words in my mind even if I have studied for a spelling test for days. Another is my writing not knowing how to start a sentence when doing an essay.
