Pada hari Rabu, Oktober 26th, 2016, my friends and I got Free Writing and Focus Writing Lessons in our EMpower Photovoices class. Before writing, the teachers taught us the techniques first. The techniques are writing without thinking, don’t be afraid of making mistakes and don’t typo the writing if we wrote the wrong one. The teachers then asked us to write the Free Writing first. The teachers said that anything is there on our mind must come out and write freely.
We did wrote without thinking. We just wrote the things which passed on our mind. Di 10 menit, I had written many things as much as one page like school, lingkungan hidup, homework, the butterfly which flew around us, dan seterusnya. I was very happy since this thing was very easy to do. My friend’s writings were very funny. They wrote many things like a deadly chicken. Their expression was funny too when they read it in front of class.
The second lesson was Focus Writing. This lesson has different way against Free Writing. On Focus Writing we have to develop one idea to make a story, don’t repeat a sentence which has same meaning and don’t put some words which has same meaning together. We can start writing from general things to specific or the opposite depending the writing style we use.
Setelah melakukan Menulis Gratis, kami melakukan Focus Menulis oleh memilih satu ide dari Menulis gratis kami lakukan di awal. Saya menulis tentang sahabatku, Yuliani karena dia lewat di pikiran saya saat menulis. Saya menulis tentang apa yang dia lakukan di kelas di hari.
Menulis bebas terhadap Focus Menulis sangat berbeda. Menulis gratis hanya menulis apa yang terjadi pada pikiran kita sedangkan pada Menulis Focus kita harus menulis satu topik yang akan dikembangkan. Focus Writing was quite difficult since I didn’t know how to develop the idea yet but Free Writing was easy since I could write while joking with my friend.
My writings at the day were quite satisfying myself. Pelajaran ini sangat berguna bagi saya karena mereka membuat tulisan cerita dan caption pada Pelajaran Photovoices lebih mudah dan mungkin akan memberikan manfaat ketika saya mencoba untuk mendapatkan pekerjaan di masa depan. Saya sangat senang untuk pergi ke sekolah di hari itu karena aku punya beberapa cara untuk menulis (bebas dan fokus) dan bagaimana mengembangkan ide dari pikiran saya.
