Assignment 2

One aspect that I have improved since the beginning of the semester is writing long essays. It used to be really hard for me to write long essays but I have gotten used to it since in college you’re required to write long essays. One aspect that is still challenging me is using the word “you”, I use the word “you” a lot in my essays and its still hard for me to get used to not using it. One aspect of academic writing that I enjoy is revising my essay and making it better after getting feedback.

    Thank you for thinking about your writing and your progress so far. Writing longer essays is a challenge. I hope the strategies we’ve discussed have made this less mysterious. Also, remember that using “you” is hard because it is a habit we all bring from our spoken English. Avoiding second person does get easier and your writing will keep improving. Keep writing!
