I chose the older essay on perseverance because it was a really weak essay that I did my sophomore year of high school. It was a very short essay. The word choice as well as the quality of the essay was not properly done. To see the future essays I did this year shows that I have developed as a writer.
The memoir and the research paper were the only to finished pieces of work that were done this term. I chose them because I feel that through the revisions I made, they were strong articles. This was a real eye opener for me about college level writing.
The blogs that I chose were the longest three I could find. We did many of these over the course of the term, but were only given a limited amount of time to them.
