The entire literacy narrative project has had the most significant impact on me as a writer. It has not changed my perception of writing but rather changed the way I would approach writing by incorporating visual thinking into my writing process. My comic focused more on moments that were of relevance and had a bigger impact on me as a reader and a writer. My first literacy narrative draft failed to focus on my parents’ influence on my progression as a reader primarily. The comic rectified that error. Additionally, the first draft did not even explicitly address the negative impact of college essays on my writing.
Constructing my comic provided me with the illusion of “writing” about a character from a third-person view, something which traditional writing failed to do. As a result, the third and final literacy narrative project was an effective combination of the images and text.
