Improving my writing Improving my writing
In my approach to become a good writer, I have learned a few strategies to help me along the way. Though I have improved in my writing over the last couple of years, I have flaws that I need to address in order to become a more educated and professional writer.
These are a few goals that I have set for this quarter. I want to be able to make citations that are formatted properly. Next, I want to improve on sticking to the idea of what the writing is about. Afterward, I want to learn more ways of how I can stay on topic. Most importantly, I want to be able to read my writing and not see myself repeating content over and over again.
In the past, I've used several strategies to help strengthen these weaknesses. The first is looking at examples of citations. When it comes to sticking to the Idea, I've tried using different tones that pertain to what I'm trying to accomplish in the writing. I was also taught that to stay on topi
Beyond the Cracks of Imperfection - PrologueDid dreams really foretell something? Of what was to come, whether it be good or bad? I feel like it work's like fate, maybe it's written in the stars, or was it that our fate was out of our control, and tied to many others?

What do people expect with such an premature conscious? What I learned was to trust no one, and at times not even myself; To live modestly and accept no help.

To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been
but now you're conscious
and it starts again--

You gain consciousness in this too warm morning
and your thoughts whir in endless loops
because it's either that or face the weight in your chest.
Light breaks though the window, soft and unwelcome
but you take it as a reluctant gift--
a new distraction from the feelings awake in your chest.
Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
