For reference I've been a writer, journalist, editor, professional communicator for my whole career (first published professionally at 17 in 1979 by the long defunct and sorely missed Creative Computing) with editor and editorial strategy being what I am really good at - in other words I'm a good writer but editorial strategy pays better (and I'm better at it). I'm a professional - that means it is always decent, comes in on time and to the right length and is what you asked for. If you want a professional quality news story and can point me at a source I can give it to you in an hour. I am not a great proofreader, so I will miss typos.I'm good at breaking down and then summarizing complex issues. I was trained in England which means that I do not understand or like some of the forced feature writing structures of American publications. Note - all of that is for reporting and non fiction writing.The content of the essay can address your achievements, failures and values.
Begin with the thesis statement, then note the points you will make in each body of the paragraph.
Make certain these points support the essay's main idea and that they are distinct from one another.
It seems I have a tendency to focus on the tasks I enjoy doing most and turning away from the difficult ones. Most of the time, I do not have issues with run on sentences or periods. I found colons are good for making the eyes on smiley faces in my email (:-) ), but I am not too sure how to correctly use them.
I feel if I take care of the "easy stuff" I can get more done. Now that I have returned to college, my hardest task has become my first chore. Please don't even get me started talking about semicolons or hyphens.
I probably have innumerable other weaknesses but since they will never come to light they don't matter anyway!
As a leader is it important to know and own up to your strengths and weaknesses.
Armed with this information one can build up their strengths and work towards eliminating their weaknesses.
For myself, I asked friends to verify what my strengths and weaknesses are.
You can write about a specific experience that has changed you or taught you something new about yourself or life in general.
Be honest and provide details, analysis and evidence.
