This timed writing exercise went much more smooth than I had anticipated it to go. The reason I say this is because I typically get real anxious when I have a short timespan to do anything school related, let alone a timed paper. I tend to think long and hard about a given prompt I am going to write about, before actually beginning to do compose the paper. This is in my opinion why I failed the Writing Proficiency Exam initially. I spent far too long brainstorming as to where exactly I wanted to go with the paper, in regards to the prompt I had chosen to go with; and not enough time putting words down. In turn, I ended up only finishing five of the needed six paragraphs, which is what I believe to be the sole reason I failed the exam. That is only speculation though of course. So this go round I made it a mission of mine to start typing the minute I sat down in the chair. The mission ended up being successful in the manner that I was able to complete the introduction to my paper within the first 20 minutes of being seated. The introduction is usually the hardest part of an essay for me, which is why it was such a big deal that I finished it just 20 minutes into the allotted 2hour timeframe. I was also very pleased with how it turned out. I think that I built great rapport pertaining to the subject matter discussed throughout the course of my paper. The thesis also proves to be effective in my opinion, based upon the contents of my essay. Now the four body paragraphs were also very complete in my opinion. I think that each respective topic sentence possessed that of great supporting material. I incorporated a number of related personal experiences of mine in to the paper, in order to better support the side I stood on in relation to the given prompt I chose to go with. I also referenced some material from Jon Ronson’s Feed Frenzy article throughout the course of my paper, in order to further support the main subject matter being discussed in my body paragraphs. On another note, my conclusion I felt needed to be polished up a bit, in order to to be as effective as I wanted it to be. It possessed a few grammatical errors, as well as a few spelling mistakes. Other than that, I feel as if my conclusion was quite effective in recapping the contents of my paper. I also concluded this paper by recapping the main points in the same order as they were presented in the actual essay. This timed paper went much better than the previous one that I failed for two major reasons: the first being that I succeeded in my mission to stay actively typing throughout the allotted 2hour timeframe; and then the second, which in a way coincides with the first, being that I was able to prepare for a specific prompt, prior to sitting down at the lab to start the timed writing assignment.
