As a freshman, I'm required to take two GE courses, a foreign language, and a critical thinking writing course in my very first semester. Everything has been good and all for the most part. However, I got a C- on my first paper in writing (I was a straight A student in high school). I'm trying hard to answer the prompts, be as descriptive and specific as possible, but I still don't think I'm where I need to be. This worries me for when I will have to do my term papers and my other writing assignments. I'd hate for my grades to plummet simply because of my writing. I'm dedicated to doing well, attend every class, spend hours on work, and yet writing is the only thing holding me back from very good grades. Any advice?
