Reaching Goals

 So I've been trying for a couple weeks to reach some of my goals for writing this year. But I don't think I've gotten very far. I did find a couple ways to get some help with getting my thoughts into my writing pieces. But making them more descriptive and maybe even a little longer is still some of my biggest struggles in writing. When those are you're main struggles the rest of the writing is pretty hard as well. So if I could get a little feed back from some of you readers out there that would be great.
Yours truly,

Getting Through My Writing Problems

     Hey Readers, 
So this week I had some trouble working on the Writer's Craft. It was pretty easy getting started for once but then I had some trouble making my piece longer. I found that very unusual. So to get around the issue I asked one of my peers to help me get somewhere with my paper. I had her read what I had already wrote down and see if she had any ideas for after the spot I left off. When she read it she told me that she knew exactly what I was trying to get at in my piece, so she wrote down on a sheet of paper a few ideas she had and the ideas she gave me were exactly what I was looking for. So I changed them up a bit and added them into my piece and it turned out pretty good. I'm still very surprised that I had trouble writing the rest of my paper. But I'm glad I got through it.  
Thank you to all of you who gave some advice and support. 
                                                                                 Yours Truly, 
                                                                                  Sam Shannon :)

Blog Post 2

     So writing lately has been somewhat frustrating. A lot of things frustrate me about writing but recently it's been getting started on a piece. Or more specifically, knowing what to write about. This is really bugs me because when this happens,I spend most of my time trying to find something to write about and it takes longer for me to finish my work and get it in on time. I'm not quite so sure why this is so hard for me, but maybe a little feedback from you guys out there will help me out.
     Something that could help me avoid this situation might be a little help from some of you out there. Or I could just brainstorm a little bit and write down some topics ahead of time. I'm sure both of these options would be very helpful in making writing a lot easier for me.

                                                                                       Yours truly,
                                                                                     Sam Shannon

Writing Goals

    One of the goals I have chosen for myself is more creative writing pieces. A couple ways I will achieve this goal is think outside the box when I start to write a piece. My past writing pieces have been kind of original. Most of them seem to be related in some way. I want some of my writing this year to be crazy and not like anyone else's. Something no one has ever done or in a more realistic way of putting it, something that hasn't been done a lot in the past. One of a kind!
     Another goal I have for myself is working on how to start an essay. In my past year of high school starting an essay was probably one of the hardest things I had to do. I had to have a lot of assistance during my process of writing. Once I got the hang of it I could most of it by myself. Hopefully this year I can begin an essay with no sweat and complete it with minimal help.
