Online Writing Exchange (OWX) Reflection
The 2017 online writing exchange was amazing and extremely helpful! It helped me improve my word choice, voice and organization too! If I didn’t make sense about something, she would ask me what it meant, so that I could improve it and make it make sense. The most important feedback that helped me the most was when she told me to be specific and create a picture in the mind of the reader. She also helped me figure out how to split my writing into paragraphs which I used to have problems with. She made me feel comfortable with my writing be being super kind! When I met her, she was extremely nice and willing to help. Even online, she would praise my work all the time!! One really nice comment that she gave me was when she said that I used a lot of amazing figurative language and how I am always really great with that! It helps me boost my self-esteem in writing. They didn’t control my writing but guided me onto the path to become a better writer. She would say to add the 5 senses or change some words and to be more specific which would help me a lot!
There are a few things that could be improved though. Maybe we could meet online and talk about our writing more! We could have met more than once to know each other more. Other than that there is nothing. I think that this exchange was really helpful!
