The anguish and the ecstasy

Without doubt, the college blogging assignment has always been one of my favourites. The act of writing in a public forum, where anyone anywhere in the world could read their prose, seems to compel students to do their best work. … Continue reading

Proceed with caution.

A questionable start

Never thought I’d be here.

? I guess this makes me a blogger! Get this image here. I’ve hardly ever thought about myself as a writer. I’d usually groan and complain about having to write essays, never really feeling inspired…

God bless autocorrect

? Ever mess up a word so bad auto correct can’t even figure it out? Welcome to my life. Spelling is my greatest weakness; I’m horrible at it. Maybe it’s because I have become so reliant on auto correct to fix my mistakes or the fact I’ve always been like this, either way, the struggle is real. I love the ability to put your thoughts into words, getting deeper into the idea you create by writing it out. I consider myself very creative, and once I have an idea; I find it easy to make it flourish. The problem I face, that I mention previously was my spelling if it were not for auto correct all the papers, emails, and texts I write wouldn’t make sense. I have a bad habit of trying to edit my own papers, when I do this, I miss all my errors. There were many times in the first semester, I would have gotten a better mark if only I had someone other than myself edit it. Other than writing for school, I write my own lyrics for myself. When I write lyrics, it is usually based on my life, it is very therapeutic. I enjoy finishing a song or a paper and getting to read over my work, knowing I have done well makes it even sweeter. I don’t have much experience as a writer, but I am excited at the idea of writing my blog. Having the opportunity to write to the public is very intimidating. I can only hope to grow as a writer and build the skills to have a successful blog. If my blog reaches other people than my teachers, it would give me more confidence in my capabilities. Furthermore, to the future employers reading this…hire me. I may be flawed in some of my writing capabilities, but I make up for it with creative ideas. What I’m learning in Franks class will hopefully help me develop the ability to be successful in my future advertising career. I look forward to the forthcoming possibility of become a write, wish me luck. Cheers, Wake Up Maggie
