COM-155 Appendix G Final Assignment Week 9
After reading paragraphs one and two, I found the second paragraph was more effective. The author of the first paragraph did not use much sentence variety. The paragraph seemed to have short and choppy sentences. The paragraph did not make much sense because of this. Even though I understood the meaning for writing this paragraph and the point that the writer was trying to get across I did not find myself wanting to read the paragraph. In the second paragraph I found that the writer used better sentence variety and rhythm. However I did not find my self drawn to this paragraph either. I found ...view middle of the document...
When I wrote the words “ the author of this paragraph” write point said that if I was referring to myself that I should not refer to myself in a third person point of view. The two things that I found to be useful were when write point said to make sure I did not use a coma after the word of the sentence unless it precedes a parenthetical phrase. Write Point also informed me that the words “ any and more” when written with a space between the two words means “additional amount” and when the words are written together it means “now”. This was one thing that I did not know.
My strategy for using Write Point in the future is to use it more often and try to understand why they made each correction. When I am using Write Point in the future I plan to make sure that I submit every paper that I need corrected in plenty of time to submit the paper, get back the suggestions from write point, and revise all of my work.
I also know that write point is not always correct and it misses some things that may need to be corrected. So in the future I will not only submit the paper to write point I will also have some one else read over all of my work to make sure that write point nor I have missed anything. If I did miss some thing in the whole process I will be able to correct it. I also like the fact that The Center of Writing Excellence checks for any plagiarism problems. I have found that plagiarism can be easily done even if you do not mean to do so. It is very easy to read something from a book or someone else’s work and type it in word for word.
