On Wednesday, I went to the writing center in the library for a 25 minute walk-in consultation for my creative non-fiction essay for my English class. I wanted to get help on expanding my story. I did a walk-in consultation instead of making an appointment online because all the appointments are booked up until almost finals week.
I tried to go on Monday but the line was extremely long and I couldn’t wait for it so I tried again on Wednesday and there was no line at all and I was the next person up. The lady that was helping me was very nice and smiled a lot. She read over my draft and fixed up some of my grammar issues. She thought what a lot of what I wrote was very funny and had a compelling intro and then asked me some questions on where I was planning on taking it. I realized then that I didn’t have a conclusion yet and she helped me write out an outline for things I can talk about and what to put as an ending note. I found the walk-in consultation very helpful even though it was short and I feel more confident in writing this essay.
I think that everyone should go to the library for a walk-in consultation for their essays. It’s very accessible at most times and great to have there especially since that all of the 1 hour appointments that you make online are filled up for basically the rest of the semester. The people there are really nice and helpful and there is basically no wait if you go at the right time.
