Welcome to Mitchell’s English Portfolio 

 

 

Welcome, konnichi wa

Bienvenidos a mi portfoio de website

In it are my fears and failures,

My thoughts, my joys and delights.

 

The works express my inner self.

They each expose a different side

And for some reason, I feel so naked.

Because of this, there’s nowhere for me to run and hide.

 

The poems are the result of much thinking.

They didn’t come quickly; they took their time.

My poems turn out the best when I don’t try to force them.

Perfection must be found in each line and rhyme.

 

The exposition of my expository writings

Bring elation to the left half of my brain.

I write to discover hidden meanings.

It’s nice to know that I’m still sane.

 

The insanity solidifies in the journals.

They ramble and tumble through the pathways of my mind.

Searching, seeking, exploring, discovering

New ideas and conclusions. All these they help me find.

 

So stay and enjoy my humble writings.

Feel free to critique all that you see.

I value your judgment, your every opinion.

If you have something to say, please contact me.

 

 

 

Creative Writing

            Creative writing often seems an exercise in futility for me. Even though I pride myself in my vivid imagination, I acknowledge the fact that I often have trouble transcribing my thoughts into words and conveying my ideas to other people. The following works are examples of my favorite poem, short story and letter from a character’s point of view.

 

          “Those Unknown”

                   “The Willow and the Storm”                                                                                          

                   Letter from Marlow of Heart of Darkness

 

 

 

Expository Writing

To me, expository writing is my forte. I thoroughly enjoy analyzing and dissecting essays, stories, and poems, although I do not always agree with the timetable set forth for these assignments. The feeling that I experience with each new revelation is unmatchable by anything in the academic world. This type of writing compliments my thought process by allowing me to discover the details of a work and how they are interrelated to each other and the work as a whole.

           

Analysis of “The Willow and the Storm”

                   Analysis of “Traveling through the Dark”

 

 

 

Journals

Journals are small, in class assignments that are assigned. They are designed to provoke thought and to “get our creative juices flowing.”
