Favourite blog post I wrote: Week 11 Main Post: Reimagining Public and Private Space
Besides, have you experienced the weather in Toronto?
I enjoyed framing the questions and answering them accordingly. For that week’s post, I initially had a different idea, started a draft, but then scrapped it because I wasn’t happy. However, I am happy with how the final piece turned out. In retrospect, I think I held myself back a lot during the course of this semester. However, in this second to last week, I felt like more of my own voice came out. As a writer, that’s all I ask for.
Most challenging blog post I wrote: Week 2 Secondary Post: Bell Let’s Talk
I love that Bell Let’s Talk starts the conversation. All I ask is that we continue the conversation long after today is over.

Favourite blog post a classmate wrote: Week 11 Secondary Blog: Authorship in the News
In fiction, editors serve the writer, in the news, the writers serve the publication.
I feel her frustration. In my experience, editors often make changes without consulting writers. And reading something under my name even though the article sounds nothing like what I would ever say doesn’t sit well with me. I’ve come to accept that this will happen when you write for someone else. The writing world isn’t perfect, but I want to be a part of it regardless or maybe because of its flaws.
