PLEASE REPLY TO MY CLASSMATE RESPONSE TO THE ABOVE QUESTIONS AND EXPLAIN WHY YOU AGREE? (A MINIMUM OF 125 WORDS)
Without a doubt the most challenging part was just getting started. Even after I thought I had a topic, I realized it was too broad and had to revise it. I have always been threatened by writing papers, and this course has taken me way outside of my comfort zone. I am not sure that anything about the writing process was the easiest for me. I do however feel that having the words flow at my fingertip was the easiest. The words came easy after the I read and researched and understood the topic completely. I learned that there is a method to the madness. I realized that as I worked through the process of writing a paper in the proper order, it was manageable. I learned that I am stronger that my fears. I learned that once I sat behind the keyboard, the words came. The rest was just a formal process of completion. I will always use the process of formal writing from this point forward. I have been one that just sat down and started writing in most cases, but now I will research and relate before doing so. I will also read and re-read everything. So many general errors that would make people think poorly of me are easily caught by just reading what I have typed before sending it.
