My goals for this is course to learn how to understand my audience better. I would like to be able to see and fix my grammar and spelling mistakes. Learn to write a more professional paper. I would like to learn what tone I need to write my papers in and to keep my audience more interested and focused. I expect to use writing in my university career writing reports and essays for my courses. In my professional life, right now I don’t do any writing. I probably will when I get my degree and get a different job, then I will probably have to write reports. In my personal life, I don’t do any writing other than on facebook and text messages and I rarely do that. Setting goals for myself when writing an academic paper is fairly simple. I jot down what I know on the subject. I then research to get more information. I then set myself a schedule to work on the paper a little every night. Then I strive to make the paper the best I can. When writing for others, my biggest challenge is making my paper as perfect as I can get it. I have always had a fear of not being able to write what is expected from the assignment. I also have a fear I will fail on what I’m writing. That being said, I still strive to put forth all my effort into the paper.
