- What steps do you hope to use to improve your own writing skills?
I hope to imporve formulating my ideas prior to beginning my writing peice. I think it is a good idea to spread your ideas out, write them down, for example in outline form then begin to write. I would also like to work on using more profound words in my writing instead of always using simple vocabulary, expanding it to be a bit more complex.
2)How do you best activate your own creativity (e.g. do you take a walk, keep a journal, etc.)?
To activate my creativity i look at other people’s works of writing. Not to copy any of thier ideas, but to help create and spark a few of my own.
3)Share an example of a public speech you may have given. How did you prepare for the speech? How did it go?
A time when i had to give a public speech was in an oral communications class i took. The way i prepared for the speech was jotted important things down on notecards becuase i knew i wanted to speak freely not just read from something word for word. It went very well. Speaking on my own and only glancing at the notecards for key parts.
