    The tutor sent this back to me-- A reflective paper is a type of writing that examines and observes the advancement of the author's individual experience. While reflective papers clarify and break down the advancement of the author, they likewise examine future objectives. [This is a well punctuated sentence where the introductory element is correctly separated from the independent part of the sentence. This facilitates the understanding of the idea. Good!! ] For this course I have composed an aggregate of four expositions and for each one I have encountered difficulties along the way. I will discuss the experiences, and processes or methods I have utilized or had with every paper. The procedure and techniques I use to create my papers are most likely similar to several other individuals. For example my paper on cause/effect I looked over the guidelines and chose three topics which were, discuss three good effects of a college education, the cause for divorce, and effects of separation. I then thought of ideas, for example, great lucrative employment, advanced education, causes; cheating/absence of responsibility, abuse/too much belligerence, marrying too young, and effects; children are effected, emotional for both parties, and financially. After that I chose the topic effects of separation from the three I initially pick, I picked this particular subject in light of the fact that I felt more comfortable and knowledgeable about it. [You have incorrectly connected two independent sentences with the help of a comma. This is a comma splice error. Separate the two sentences with the help of a period or a semi colon. This will make it easier for the readers to understand the idea properly. Revise the entire essay for similar errors.] Presently I officially begin writing, I start with the introduction, for the most part a definition of the theme like "Separation is the lawful disintegration of a marriage by a court or other skillful body. "including a sentence or two after then the thesis statement that demonstrates to the reader a brief sneak peak of what my supposition is on the subject I am examining and a few principle focuses. I draft together the body passages with the first sentence expressing the principle point, then I look over and update what I have and request that another person do likewise. Finally I write and review my conclusion and arrangement the whole essay in MLA format with double space. I will proceed with these same steps with conceivable new additions with any composition I may have outside of this course. My personal experience with the four papers I have composed have been great and awful, I would measure it up to a roller coaster. Concocting thoughts was simple and fun, however the procedure of articulating some of my thoughts on paper was a tad challenging, such as sitting tight in line for the ride and attempting to pull the safety belt down so it is sufficiently close to not make the rider feel like they are falling out. Creating a thesis statement I experienced some difficulty with on the first paper, definition and example however I got more practice as I did the others, by the last paper, cause or effect I had no inconvenience generating my thesis statement, it was similar to waiting in line and chickening out on asking one of the employees if me and my companions or family could sit in the front row, but by the fifth ride and witnessing others ask, I at last had the strength to request to sit in the front row. [You have incorrectly connected two independent sentences with the help of a conjunction. This is a run-on error. Separate the two sentences with the help of a period. This will make it easier for the readers to understand the idea properly. Revise the entire essay for similar errors.] I accept I could in any case learn more on transitioning and word choice, I would consider transition's to be a weakness of mine when composing. [The body paragraph should end with the wrap up sentence which reflects on the opening sentence of the body paragraph. This makes the essay well organized. How might you do that?] As I expressed above I could utilize some new additions in the procedures and strategies I use to make my essays and work on transitions. When I become stuck while writing I should to enjoy a short reprieve and return to it. My impression of the techniques/forms and encounters I have had while composing my previous papers have opened my eyes and demonstrated to me not to surrender and to invest more energy, for example, rehearsing and doing examination on my shortcomings with composing.

    In the "[ ]" it says what needs to be fixed. Like punctuation (I guess I have a lot of comma splice errors) And the last body at the end says " [The body paragraph should end with the wrap up sentence which reflects on the opening sentence of the body paragraph. This makes the essay well organized. How might you do that?]" @brebre5564
