On the first day of English we were told to come up with writing goals for the year. Since then I have barely done any of those things. Now after the assignment about why McMurphy broke the glass I see that the only goal I have tried to do is putting in more details. Due to all of these assignments I do not think I can accomplish these goals due to the assignment requirements. I will try to reach the other goals in future writings but only if the requirements for the assignment allow me to. Since I know that I cannot change the assignments I'll try to make them work for me.

One thing I found frustrating with this latest prompt was I had major writers block. Throughout the entire project it took me 5 minutes to write a sentence. The reason for this was probably the prompt itself. I had to choose one of my writings and expand upon it. The writing I chose was the emotion prompt and honestly I regret it because it caused so much distress. But all in all the writing was ok so I feel good about it. It was just annoying as hell.

In recent writings I have tried to be more descriptive and detailed. I tried to do this because I wanted it to be a good read. Also in some dialogue prompts I have avoided character names and simply wrote what they were saying so you could infer who they were. I tried this because it was very simple and a lot of fun to do. I liked writing like this so I shall continue to do so.

My goals for writing this year are to know what I'm going to write before I write it, to have more expansive examples instead of being real quick about it, and to be more descriptive. To know what I'm going to write I am going to have an idea and try writing it down and tell what I want to say. In order to be more expansive I will try to think of more examples that would relate to my writing by doing some research and brainstorming. To be more descriptive I will try to get more in depth and explain what I'm thinking and how it looks in my mind. I hope that I can follow these goals throughout the entirety of the year.
