Question description


In this 4-5 page assignment, you will tell a story about a particular time in your life. This time should be about the topic in your proposal. A good story thrives on tension, so the moment you choose should be filled with both external and internal conflict.

Remember, while we might write early drafts for ourselves, we are ultimately writing for others. A good story makes the reader feel as if they are right there. In order to accomplish this, you will need to have vivid description, create complex characters, and have clear writing.

It is important that you illustrate why this was such a crucial moment in your life. To do this, you must have reflection throughout your essay.

Finally, because this is a writing process class, you need to reflect on your writing experience in the attached cover memo. NOTE: This does not count towards your word count or page-length requirement.


You will be assessed on how well you utilize:

The narrative arc to create tension

Pathos through scenes (description, characters, and so forth)

Pathos and ethos through reflection

Logos through effective organization (overall structure and paragraphs)

Ethos with professional writing (minimal errors, appropriate voice)

Following conventions (MLA formatting)

Reflective Cover Memo (see attachment)

Note: Extract the narrative story from the attached file(Writing Journal 2 file)

Also, write a reflective memo in a one page as the attached file

Like any siblings in the world, I and my sister, Hanan, had a rivalry relation. She is older than me by two years. We climbed the life ladder by competing against each other, and I used to look up to her. She always has the spotlight on her. One day when I was 14 years old, I got so jealous of her to the point of not talking to her -Little did I know what she was experiencingShe had so much on her shoulder to be that successful. Our disagreement started on family dinner with my parents, when she said: “Memo (that is what she calls me) since you are not that good in school, I could help you on your studies.” Here where I felt insecure and I got angry, so I started calling her names in front of my parents. Afterward, I stopped talking to her for a whole year. During that year, my mom noticed that my sister has not communicated with her classmates as usual and her lack of motive for studying or doing anything. And here is where my sister’s depression was to be recognized a year and a half later in which it has been treated as a lack of faith.
