Responses for “Navigating Genres”


  1. Facebook posts are based on the writer’s will, unaffected by any limiting factors that would restrict writing in another genre.  Therefore, the writers can post anything they wish to express freely. I feel much more comfortable than old people because some old people are worried more than ever about privacy. For example, some old people don’t like to post their birth date in public. Sometimes they use  emojis in a strange way.
  2. My favorite title is “Commas, Turning Up, Everywhere”. I’m curious about it. Before I start writing I have to keep the rules in mind. I learned the rules about the writing of summary and analysis last semester. The most difficult particular genre in this semester so far is the writing without ascending letters.


Responses for “Shitty First Drafts”


  1. Normally I make two drafts in a writing: the first draft and the final draft. The first draft is just everything about the topic that popped into my brain according to the outline, then I fix and edit the first draft to a complete final draft.
  2. I’m not particularly surprised by the chapter’s title because I always have a “shitty first draft” too. I think if I make an outline in advance before starting the first draft, then I don’t need to make changes to the way I write.
