Self-Assessment Essay

The current degree I am seeking through my studies is Education. It is my hope that I may one day be able to teach English overseas in countries like South Korea and Japan. However, the career I desire most is writing. I love to write novels, scripts for movies and video game storyboards in my spare time. Becoming a published author one day would be a dream come true. Currently, I plan on finishing all four years of my studies at this university. This spring semester is my very first semester of college ever and so far I am enjoying it very much.

I have never used Modern Language Association format for papers and documentation, but I am very open to new styles of writing. As such, research is something that doesn’t really bother me. I love learning almost as much as I love writing. People who have read my novels and other works tell me that I have a very visual style of writing. The words I weave together seem to make it easy for others to picture things in their minds. I hope that my ability and experience in writing proves to be a great asset in this class.

As far as my writing goes, the only negative remarks I’ve received lately is that my hand writing is rather poor. Some also say that my writing is small and hard to read. I typically use computers to write due to this. My hand writing has proven to be something of a bad habit that I find difficult to break. Perhaps more hand written assignments in this class could help improve on my style and clarity of writing.

My personal goal for this class is to learn better writing techniques, or even improve on my sentence fluency and structure. I may have more writing experience than typical college students, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t have room for more improvement. With each paragraph I write I learn more and build even more experience in this skill. I’m always improving and I’m not perfect, but hopefully this college course can be one of many that helps make me more...
