Being a new blogger, it has been an amazing experience entering the world of columnists and revealing the art of all their works. Through this assignment, I particularly learned that great writing does not come from the specific stories addressed, or simply one or two fancy terms in a certain piece to make one part stand out. True masterpieces of writing actually come from the most powerful weapon in our body: the mind. Yes, you heard right! Every words on a writer’s piece of paper come from the thoughts going on in the person’s head. And when incorporating with information from historical facts or current events, it can transform a mundane piece of writing into an essential masterpiece that millions of people would be dying to learn more.
I especially enjoyed getting the opportunity to learn about the works of Ann Coulter. Through each of the different articles I had to analyze, I was mostly woken up with her strong figurative language. That’s what mainly set this kind of drama tone in her writings, and it made me anxious to learn more and do some of my research. I mean, when do most of us even think of wanting to know the more serious ways of life? But Coulter has that power to enhance the meanings of the different events in the world, especially in the areas of disease, politics, and election. And amazingly, we everyday people are just as involved as those fighting, or working in office, making our laws and options for the safety of our country! Just our own expressions of opinion can be such an influence to our community.
Overall, I personally enjoyed this experience as a first-time AP student. It has not only helped me to become a better blogger, but also a better writer. I really hope that the world of language and writing will always be a part of my life from this point forward. It may be the end of this particular assignment, but for me, it’s only the start of a great future in my education!
