Writing Process

This assignment consisted of recounting an experience or time when you learned either a primary of secondary literacy. After a few brief brainstorming exercises including a five-minute free-write, my mind was instantly drawn to an experience I had when I was younger. This experience stuck out in particular, not only because it was the foundation of my ability to read, but also because it was my first known embarrassing story. Once I decided on this topic, I began jotting down as many details from that time as possible. I eventually pieced together my thoughts and began composing the narrative, adding details as they came to mind. Overall, the most difficult part about this writing process was revisiting the unfortunate scenario from my youth. Other than that, it was a fairly smooth process from start to finish
