For this assignment, you will write a narrative essay about a specific event from your past. This paper must be a true story, based on your own life. This is not fiction. However, it should be fun and easy to write, because there is no research required, just your own memory.
Directions: Choose an event to reflect upon. It is not necessary to make deeply personal revelations about yourself or your family or friends in order to write a good reflection. The event itself does not need to be striking. It is your memories and interpretation that will make your essay interesting to readers. The event you are writing about does not have to be a major milestone; your reflection does not need to be a lengthy epic. Small events can be as interesting and significant as big ones. Pick a specific moment in time; don’t try to cover your entire senior year in high school.
