Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: I find it very easy to write. I like to write . . . about stuff that I'm interested in. I have a hard time with things that I am not interested in. For me, I was lucky that I'm interested in people. I'm interested in cultures so it was not difficult for me. I actually wanted to write a lot more. I found it more challenging to keep it--you know if projects had to be within like five to seven pages keeping it within that five to seven pages is difficult. I've learned some tricks along the way in school with taking English 100 and other writing courses that are kind of focusing. I just write and if the project requires six pages and I end up with ten, I just write until I feel like I'm there and done and then I read through it and make sure that I keep my main subject--my main topic--in mind, but I actually separate my paragraphs and my sentences so that way I think, ʻis this just me babbling or oh I'm going off tangent here?ʻ . . . It's an interesting type of information, but it has nothing to do with my paper so that's where I just write freely and then I edit. I'm a much better writer now than four years ago when I started school.
Description: This item includes a segment of a student interview in a Writing Intensive course in Nursing at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The interview was conducted in 2014, and in this clip the interviewee is responding to the question 'Did the assignments motivate you or, on the contrary, de-motivate you in performing in the course. Why?'
