Step 1: Reflect and Brainstorm Consider your past writing experiences. Look back

Step 1: Reflect and Brainstorm
Consider your past writing experiences. Look back and think critically (carefully, deliberately, and methodically) about your past experiences composing and writing, and how you feel about writing as a result. 
Brainstorm ideas for your reflection, keeping in mind that roughly half of your reflection should be spent both “Looking Back” and “Looking Forward.” Use the following questions to help you generate (invent) ideas. Choose the questions that resonate with you; you do not need to cover all of the questions but you should have a fairly equal balance between the two categories. 
Looking Back
Looking Forward
How would you describe your writing process? What parts of the process are strengths? Where would you like to improve? 
What kinds of writing do you have experience with? Describe those experiences. 
What kinds of technology have you used for writing and research including generative AI such as ChatGPT and Grammarly? What technologies are most helpful, and what impede your writing? What works well for you, and what are you challenged by?
What kinds of writing are part of your workplace? Your social life? Your academic life?
How confident do you feel about those types of writing? Why do you feel that way?
What kinds of writing habits have you developed? Which habits help you? Which habits hold you back?
How have the perceptions of others (such as teachers or peers) about your writing impacted your identity as a writer?
How do you feel about yourself as a writer? What is your current identity as a writer/composer?
