Every week is a new week and I always think I couldn't possibly learn more about poetry that what I already know but that is not true. I learned that poems can be to the point where opposite interpretations can be correct. This week we focused more on getting into our groups and working on our projects. Some of the things we did within our groups was learning to analyze different elements.
This week we also had a speaker come in and talk to us about writing and about his book. Things that the speaker had pointed out was that not everyone is going to like what you write and that's okay and he also said that criticism is a good thing but just because I few people criticize it doesn't mean everyone hates it. At the end of the week we started working on our creative writing portfolio's and while writing the portfolio we were to revise and edit our work that we wanted to put in it. Revising not only fixes the writing but it also helps me as a writing to learn what I need to know. Overall this week was really helpful with my writing skills and no matter what writing takes time and dedication.
For next week something I can improve on is probably my creative writing. A lot of the time when we are doing creative writing I'm not really sure what to write about.
