Now that I have finally had a few minutes to sit down and really think about my E-Portfolio, I think I have come up with my theme….Food. One way or another, everything in my life always seems to come back to food or cooking. Since my Re-Mediation project has to do with food anyway, it seemed appropriate to continue the theme over into my E-portfolio.
I have always had a passion for food, and I think it is the most natural fit to use as a metaphor for both my life and my writing style. I had never really considered it before, but writing and cooking are really very similar. I began to storyboard the basic structure of my website using the process of cooking (and all the preparation that goes into it) as a metaphor for my writing process. I am very excited to finally be working on the website and getting to explore many different creative ideas.
One challenge I am already encountering, though, is the heavy amount self-reflection that this assignment requires. This class has really opened me up to self-reflection as a helpful writing technique, but I think I under-estimated how difficult it would be to go back and really self-reflect on every aspect of my writing process and my journey as a writer personally! Maybe if I just keep blogging something useful will come out of it….
Good luck everyone!
