When it comes to personal strengths and weakness in writing, most people are probably good at getting the work done on time and struggle when it comes to spelling and double checking their work, however I’m the complete opposite. I am generally a great speller and have pretty good sentence structure, but when it comes to getting the work done when I should, I always have a hard time. After identifying and understanding my weaknesses, I hope to turn them into strengths to better my writing. Unlike a lot of people, spelling is one of my strong areas when it comes to writing. As far back as i can remember, I’ve been good at it. People usually refer to a dictionary or spell check on a regular basis when writing, but I rarely need to. For example, in high school, I would always see my fellow classmates with a dictionary on their desk, where as I would never have to use one. Also as a young child I entered and won a few spelling bee’s in the school district. Proof reading and editing is another strength I have. I always re-read over my papers at least twice once I have finished them. I double check for sentence structure errors and punctuation mistakes. As I re-read my papers, usually I find extra details and descriptions that I may have left out. I consider this a strength because if I did not proof read my writings, my papers would contain more errors, lack essential detail and descriptions, and possibly leave the reader confused. One of my weaknesses would have to be coming up with topics to write about and starting off the paper. This may come easy to others, but for me its a struggle. Brainstorming usually takes up more time then writing the actual paper does. I can spend hours and hours with a blank piece of paper, just trying to get a start. I usually just have to go on to something else and just let it come to me. Organization and focusing on the topic is always a challenge. I hate making bubble clusters even though I know they will just be beneficial for me...
