So far in english I have learnt many things. Firstly, that when you are free writing, you first have to get everything out on the page. This is a way to let your ideas flow and not be critical about your writing. Secondly, you then go through your writing piece, taking out parts that dont work, then the parts that do add to them. For example, Mr. Raisdana had a good metaphor. He compared free writing to gold mining, and how you sift through the bucket looking for pieces of gold.
What I really enjoy about this class is the round the table discussions. I find that these discussions, are a really great way to share ideas and get your thoughts out. The discussions, also make us a better class all-around, because the more discussions we have the more confortable people are becoming. I also really enjoy the idea of having a blog. I have never had a blog before and I think that it will be a interesting process of sharing ideas.
The only suggestion I have for the class is that we do more sharing of our pieces. This could be around the table, and someone reading out there piece and we could all comment (in a positive way) and make suggestion(nicely).
