Reflection of Literacy Narrative

How did you learn to read and write? In my page, you will discover the reasons and the process from which I became a writer.

My process for writing this narrative felt considerably easier than papers I have written in the past. I think the freewriting before hand really helped guide me through the process. The act of answering the specific and simple questions almost wrote the entire paper by itself. This was very different than my typical process of staring at the blank page and waiting for inspiration to present itself from the ether.

Through writing the narrative I recognized the dedication my parents and the rest of my supporting cast gave me. This gave me a strong feeling of appreciation which I’d like to express to them some day.

The most interesting sentence in my opinion is, “I was disappointed in myself for not getting further but then realized I had unintentionally memorized the entire chapter in my head.”

  1. Apologies for the late comment. I had some trouble finding where I was.

    1. One of the controlling ideas in your essay is the idea of overcoming. This is primarily seen when you describe your journey to actually read through an “adult” book in your early years. This idea allows for the reader to understand that this was a big step and a pivotal moment in your reading career.

    2. One of the most interesting points that you make is the concept of the “adult” book. To be honest, I hadn’t really thought about that prior to reading your article, because I was raised that “adult” books were “children” books I was supposed to read. Of course, that didn’t mean I read them necessarily, but it’s interesting because these books aren’t necessarily “adult” books. There isn’t much about books such as “The Hobbit” that make them any more adult than “children” books like The Warriors series. The big differences is a larger vocabulary and perhaps better transitions. However, at the core, they are still just books, and judgement of how difficult they are is simply put upon by people who we see as greater than us. But that’s just my thoughts. It’s definitely a good and interesting point with the idea of “adult” books.

    3. I wish I got to hear more of your journey into books. Surely, over the past (give or take) 5-6 years, you’ve developed further as a reader and your tastes have changed? Or, at the very least, your perspective on books has changed a little? I would’ve loved to hear further growth of you as a reader past the start.

    4. One thing that was similar between the two of our essays is that we both seem to use creative writing as a means of reflection and guidance. This is reflected by you directly saying this and me talking about how I use writing to spill emotions.
