Paper # 2
Write a narrative essay on one of the following themes. Tell a story. Take a moment from your life and tell why this moment is so important and why the reader should bother to read the essay at all. Be descriptive and precise. Show us the story rather than just tell us. This should read like a movie in the reader’s minds.
The first time you fell in love
The moment you knew you would survive a natural disaster
A moment when you stood up for what you believed
The moment you knew when you wanted to come back and get a college education
First discovery of someone who changed your life
