Like most people my writing isn't perfect but I do consider it alright but I would still like to improve. There is a few things I would like to improve on as a writer during the next year. First, I would like to get better at staying on topic during a large writing assignment. Generally in most of my longer essays I have tended to drift off topic and have trouble bringing myself back. I like what I have wrote but it doesn't have much to do with the main theme of the essay and I get stuck thinking about whther I should delete it or just keep going. Next, I would like to improve my voice in my writing. When I write for school, the way I write it is nothing what I sound like. Teachers have told me in the pass to have better voice in my writting and I try but generally when I write a paper for school I generally talk fancy because I think it sounds good and sometimes it does but others it should really be my voice espcially if it is a paper about me or from my point of view. There are definetely other flaws in my writing but those are the two major things I would like to improve on this year.
