It’s tough to think about growing up. For example, you don’t notice you grew three inches unless you measure yourself at a later time period. You don’t know how mature you are until you face a similar scenario after experiencing it once already.
And that’s what this blog is: a measurement of my writing.
It chronicles my jumbled rambling thoughts into something that makes an argument.
I’ve laid my blog out in the same way a sports blog or newspaper is laid out: the oldest work goes at the bottom and the most recent work goes at the top. I want those reading my work to look at my most recent creations and admire them for what they are worth. And should anyone be interested in seeing what happened before then, all they need do is scroll down.
I included more than just my mandatory assignments because I do believe that writing of any types gets better the more you write. Including columns or game covers gives more insight into my growth, a more detailed timeline if you will. But the point is that everything at the bottom is improved upon by the time you get to the top.
And now that I have a chance to look at the top, I’m able to say I’ve grown more than a foot in four months. What I see is someone who went from disorganized thoughts and unexplained details, to more focused pieces of writing that flow. I worked with my theme of each story instead of trying to force every fact or opinion I could within my work.
So, I present an organized collection of sports-related pieces of writing that are organized by their genre. Features include work for the Minor in Writing gateway course, while columns and game covers are my own work written over the year. I’ve included my Twitter feed to show another medium of writing that I interact with regularly.
Coincidentally, sports like writing also require growth, so it couldn’t be more fitting that this blog is about them.
