Next week I will begin my second class with CSU, Professional Writing. I am excited and a little nervous about this class because while I love to write, I am not confident in doing so. I hope that this unit will provide me with a lot of new knowledge and a greater appreciation for the written word.
This subject introduces the basics of professional writing for the communication and creative industries. Through the application of theory and practice, students gain a solid understanding of genre, style and narrative form in professional and creative communication contexts. This will enable students to meet the expectations concerning writing of future employers.

I expect that I will improve my comprehension of writing and broaden my knowledge of grammar and communication in a clear and professional manner. I also anticipate that I will understand how and why particular genres are composed.
I love to use words to express feelings and ideas. However, I have found I have moments where I get lost in thought and lose clarity. I also have some gaps in my knowledge of grammar and must spend more time advancing my understanding!
Writing at a professional level demands that you can articulate your thoughts well, so the audience knows what you are saying. As a digital designer, I often use visual mediums to translate ideas, however, the ability to describe with words is just as important!
