So, I was trying to think about what to write for this last blog post and I am sad that these are coming to an end because I have really enjoyed writing these posts and expressing myself this way. It motivates me to write my thoughts down more often. That being said, I will also miss this class, this small group of people in Room 203. I love that we can be that class now because we were the first class that Rachel showed Freedom Writers to. We became friends and talked about our lives and fears about new ways to write. We got personal and vulnerable and I learned so much about myself as a writer.
What I think is awesome is that we are creating a class anthology and that’s something that I have never done in a class before. I am part of the Preface team and it has been a lot of fun figuring out what we want to include and how to describe the class as a whole and the quirky, unique things that make our class special. We included a quote in the Preface and since I love quotes, that is one of the things I was in charge of. It was fun to search for a quote that describes our class. I can’t wait to see what the finished product will look like.
What I have enjoyed most about this class is learning more about writing and that we are all capable to be good writers. I loved reading all the stories and how they were different genres, but still got their message across. It inspired me in my writing and I hope that I can take what I have learned and continue to be vulnerable in my writing. I feel like I can express myself better through writing than I can with words. Writing the creative non-fiction was, in my opinion one of my best pieces of writing I have done so far and that is an accomplishment cause I have never felt like I was a good writer until I took this class. I seriously wish this class would last longer than a semester cause there is so much more we could learn or just because it would be fun and I don’t want to end. However, all things must end eventually and like with this class, the blog must end too. I will probably add more posts to this even if they aren’t graded cause I created it, so I want to keep it going. It will continue to help my writing to improve by doing weekly post. I have enjoyed my time immensely in this class and I will always be grateful for what I learned and will miss it.
