Being a person that cares about others opinions of me, I grew up mistakenly tweaking my language to sound more intelligent. I thought if I could replace my original words with synonyms that it would work. Realizing that it made my sentences more confusing and unfocused, I now strive to provide pure knowledge and define any unknowns. I lacked power in my writing because my words were not believable. I wouldn't believe my own words in fact. I lacked confidence in my writing, and so basically my audience viewed my writing as unreliable and confusing. Instead of making a good argument, I was just arguing. However, I have learned to back up with what I say with evidence. Whether it be evidence of my knowledge, evidence of science, etc, a good essay supports itself. I feel like my project two essay was better than my first project's just because my writing sounds more confident and uses better evidence. I talk about Hungry Planet and I use a lot of relevant information. I also let my emotion lose, and I let the audience know how I felt about this problem. This, overall, made my essay stronger and made it relate to language, knowledge, and power more closely.
