Something that I did that met one of my writing goals was working on my summaries. In my writer's craft I wrote about a rock climbing experience that I had, and it was a summary of the end of one climb. I thought it turned out really well, because I didn't ramble on like I tend to do with summaries. I did a good job at keeping it to the point and not getting side tracked while still having a good amount of detail. In the essay I talked about the last twenty feet, the most agonizing part. I easily could have talked about the entire climb, but by the end it would have started to seem really repetitive and boring. I did a much better at keeping it in the length that I wanted in the first draft. Normally I have to go back and take out parts that aren't as important.
Next time I might work more on using more vocabulary and using words that describe emotions or events in a more interesting way than what I've been using. Ive always tried to work at this, but next time I write I'm going to focus mostly on that. It's always nice to expand your vocabulary, because I often find that I can't find the right word to describe something.
