Your task is to write a 750-1000 word essay about a memorable event in your life.
Annie Dillard’s and Louise Erdrich’s essays are observations of animals that lead back to reflections on their own lives. Write your own personal essay, following these steps.
Step Two: Prewrite
Brainstorm possible topics.

Your essay will progress from the personal to the universal and include specific details to help the reader understand the insights gained from the experience.
Decide on the structure of your narrative and create an outline or use a story map to reflect your ideas.
