Question # 00309307 Posted By: Updated on: 06/07/2016 10:44 PM Due on: 06/09/2016
Possible subjects for your descriptive/narrative essay include an event that:
Taught you a lesson
No child-birthing or high school graduation stories (I can hear your protests all the way from North Carolina) because many of us have these experiences and they tend to have a “sameness” about them.
Your essay should have an attention-getting openingstatement and conclude with a poignant statement that reemphasizes the most important part of your description (Enlarging the description into a life lesson is often effective.)
400 - 500 words, as counted by Microsoft Word on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen (Careful editing is an important part of the writing process. Be sure that your essay does not exceed 500 words).
This paper is highly personal. Therefore, all personal pronouns are allowed, including “I” and you,” and contractions are allowed. Adhere strictly to proper grammar and mechanics.
Word Processing Requirements:
The body of the paper must be typed according to MLA style guidelines, even if you have no sources. (These are the requirements found in “Sample MLA Essay" and "Formatting a Paper in MLA Style" handouts found under "Course Documents and Resources").
