Priyanka Gopinath April 15, 2015 WRTG 1150 Week 14 Reading Responses William F. House’s reflective essay is a piece I am really able to relate to. I don’t really see myself as a great writer, and constant writer’s block, as mentioned in this essay, is something I struggle with frequently as well. I really like the metaphor he made, comparing writers block to the tide being out, and the fact that it will slowly but surely come back. Sometimes it’s nice to be reminded that writer’s block isn’t a permanent thing. In regard to the style of the essay, I like how open and free it is. It doesn’t seem forced or written just for the sake of being written. He really takes the reader through what he is feeling and experiencing which allows us to relate to his reflection. Tips on Becoming a Running Novelist written by Haruki Murakami was both entertaining and though-provoking. The author definitely knew how to get his point across while captivating the audience as well. I like how he starts off with a story of when he first decided he wanted to be a writer. That gives the audience something unique, seeing as how most people would not be able to remember the exact moment they decided what they were going to do for the rest of their lives. Another part of the piece that stood out to me was the author’s abundance of metaphors: like when he compares ideas for writing to a natural spring and the comparison of having to try to lose weight to having to try to write. He really puts a positive outlook on many disadvantages people look at negatively. Of the three essays, Elijah Rosenfeld’s spoke to me the most. I feel like he put into words exactly how I feel about writing in general. The essay wasn’t trying hard to be something it wasn’t, the words just spoke the truth and I really liked that. Most un-said lines and hidden messages end up passing over my head, and I am unable to truly analyze things the same way others do. To me this essay is simply just an essay talking about writing experience, not some deep-rooted issue. That’s why a lot of the time it is hard for me to really write as much, I just don’t have much insight on what I’ve read, same as Elijah.
