Why I Hate Writing
Some people can express themselves very well on paper. I find it very difficult to express myself in writing. Let’s take my subject “Why I Hate Writing” hum I am drawing a blank here. I hate writing because it is hard, boring, and a lot of the times I cannot come up with ideas, words and in most cases a topic. Oh, I have got an idea now – I just do not like to write! (END OF PAPER).
I wonder if I turned that into Professor Jadah Fort would she fail me. Even starting this paper is frustrating. Even writing about – why I hate writing is hard. You would think it would be easy to write about something you do not like to do. Now I have to write this paper in a format I have never heard of before in my life. APA format – what the heck is that?
One thing that makes writing hard for me is the parts of speech and how one word can be used in so many ways. Let’s take a look at the first word in my subject “WHY”. Did you know that word alone has four uses? The word “WHY” could be an adverb, noun, conjunction, or an interjection. What the heck are conjunctions and interjections? Now how confusing is that? If someone were to ask me, how did I use the word “WHY” in my subject, I would probably answer – “WHY is used as an adverb – I guess.” Another thing that makes writing hard for me is punctuation. When should I use hyphens, commas, semicolons, and all those other punctuation marks? One of the biggest mistakes I make is with words that sound alike. I really hate words that sound alike (e.g. we’re, where, were or to, too, two or their, there, they’re). Do you know how many times I have gotten RED marks on my papers for that alone?
Now I would like to discuss the boring, cannot come up with ideas, words and topics part of this paper. Why is writing boring? Maybe it is because every time I think of writing something no ideas come to mind or I have no...
