Analyzing different audiences can affect writers and their work. Personally as a writer, I know that when an individual writes they have to have an idea to whom their audience will be or to whom they are trying to address before they begin the intended narrative. Analyzing different styles of writing the writer must take into consideration their audiences’ sex, age, education level, what they expect the reader to take away from the reading and what they are offering to the reader.
While noticing the numerous different types of audiences it has affected my writing by becoming a more adhesive and self proclaimed writer. I have learned to become more discrete while choosing not only my audience but also my topic for whom I chose to associate with. A person has to take into contemplation what their reader will know on an educational base. They have to think about what their reader might expect to see throughout the writing and what the reader might question, providing facts to back up an argument and the purpose as to why they are writing.
The genre of a piece of writing impact’s how a writer should organize a paper due to the fact as to what genre it is and how they should break up the information on what they are discussing. For example, if it a genre based on fiction the writer can break a paper into four sections. Section one pertaining the author’s story, section two going into deeper depth to make a story realistic. Section three and four to give back up information from the first and second section allowing the reader to become more enthused into the writer’s narrative. Although, to write a narrative based on fiction I as the writer have to first determine who my initial crowd is (adults, young children etc.). Then from there I can develop a story based outline.
Numerous rhetorical devices always include a genre, the writer’s word choices, implicit detail/attitude and a point of view to whom is being targeted. Ways I have used rhetorical tools were when writing narratives so that I can be the narrator and say exactly what I want with a certain style intended. For example, as the saying goes “Peter Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers” is an example of alliteration, assonance and consonance. Although, in most papers I tend to write rhetorical devices on metaphors comparing to such things and even on onomatopoeias’ which are words to describe sounds like “buzz” or “clack”. I know that my rhetorical devices are based on the types of audiences that I write to such as I would use onomatopoeias’ for young children to add excitement.
Writing for a blog has perceived me because there is always someone on a blog site that has feedback consisting of negative or positive inflection to what a writer has to say. Knowing this type of information, it gave me the insight that all comments are to help a writer and that most times a person is going to have something to say. Readers tend to agree to disagree because they feel as if their comment is needed and will be right. “While noticing several blog posts towards college students another writer will always have feedback on the material that they have just read but only some will have enough courage and heart to say exactly what they feel. While reading numerous posts a person may get about 2 out of 10 people who will solely speak their minds on what they feel holding nothing back.” A blog post written by me firmly stating my opinion as to what readers felt was accurate.
Throughout all papers, encounters, blog posts and articles that I have written as a writer I think that I have broken the rules of genre more than likely at least twice. See, the way I think I feel as if to become a writer posting papers via internet I have to an abstract way of thinking ideas through. Saying, I tend to look at most situations from the back door, which most writers tend not to do. I look at numerous situations at a completely different angle asking several questions within the topic itself. I feel as if doing things such as this nature allows me to become a better and more experienced writer at hand. For instance, the encounters we have posted throughout the English semester had a sort of twist to it. A reader could give their opinion in a negative or positive way while the reader could give their opinion in a negative or positive way while the writer could ask questions within their work, agree and disagree with their own topic or even go completely off subject all while connecting the two in the end. On the other hand, while doing peer reviews the reader that consisted of the student had to act as the teacher. Sticking strictly grammar and other rules, they had to peer edit one’s work allowing it to become a great paper including suggestions of adding rhetorical devices and to whom they direct their audience to.
Strengths & Weaknesses
Throughout the English writing course I have come to know that my strengths as a writer are coming up with brilliant ideas, thinking outside of the box while discussing topics, paraphrasing given information and relating things to my paper. I utilized my strengths and used it to my advantage by expanding my paper on the things that I was most comfortable with. Doing this allowed me to see things in an entire different perspective than usual. While in English 104 we were given the opportunity to discuss and write a paper on almost anything. Also using this to my advantage I had written my last and final article on how “Hip Hop Has Evolved”. Knowing numerous amounts of information and also being a hip hop listener personally I was indeed on the right path to inform and argue the fact that hip hop evolved over time for the worst.
One imperative thing that I did this semester was not always being stuck in only one style of writing. I learned how to open up my eyes to several new ideas that can not only help me as a writer but also allow me to write as a writer from a different perspective. It allows me to see how other writers look at certain situations and give ideas and feedbacks to my own piece of my work. It has helped me question myself, argue with myself and sometimes even disagree thinking to myself “What would my readers think of this piece of writing?”
Although, when a writer has strengths they also have weaknesses or particularly things that they struggle with. Personally, I know I tend to struggle with run-on sentences or in other words prolonging my information into an exceptionally long sentence. Knowing that this is not an entirely bad habit I am learning to get away from the run-ons while also expanding my work at the same time. While writing papers for several classes I have dealt with this issue by simply proofreading my material out loud after I have completed an article. Doing this enhances my skills to realize when I am liable of and how not only my mistakes that I have made but the paper in general will sound to my readers. Also, while in English 104 there was a lot of discussion. Taking this with me in the long run throughout life I will utilize the skills of agreeing/disagreeing what I feel is right, I will begin to question information that I once didn’t and I will also broaden my insight on more than one particular style of writing.
