We have a personal Essay due soon. The following is the prompt reflecting on my writing for this assignment:
“Reflect on the difficulties of writing a personal essay/brief memoir. Do you want to write about how a “public” event impacted your life? Or do you want to explore something more individual, like a family event or a personal experience? Do you think that a personal experience might not be “worthy” of using for an essay, even though you will write a “personal essay”?
What do you think will be most challenging about enabling your reader to understand the significance of the event or time-period you choose to write about? Do you think taking a more creative approach will help you convey your thoughts and feelings about your essay “topic”? ”
Please do not write an essay but a journal. You do not need to answer all the questions above because they are just “prompts” or questions to get you started on this reflection. There is no need for essay format or citations as this is just a personal reflection assignment. The required length is 500 words.
