What I did differently this week.

One thing I did differently this week from what I normally do is that I used some of my own experiences in my writing.  It was different because I normally make up examples, or use other people's scenarios  as an example in my writing. I tried it because I figured we were doing a personal essay, so why not right? I think it worked out pretty well, I don't think I had the best example but it got the job done.

Voice

The voice in writing is a certain way in which the writer writes. It's how the writers personality shines through in the piece. Personally, my own writing voice is just like me: loud mouthed, excited, humble. I believe my voice comes through strongly in my writing and I do not believe it is still developing.

Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life

Books
I'm a bookworm, nothing much more to it. As a child I despised reading, thought it to be an unbearable punishment. Now it's an escape. Mostly scary stories, the ones not easily forgotten.

Driving
Driving is fun for me. Running red lights with my dad. Going too fast on back roads; too slow on the highway. 

Jeff
He is my dad. He's my best friend and I have and always will attribute my horrible driving to him. We play video games together, and we cuss each other out when one of us loses (cough cough, he always loses, cough cough).
