Challenges/Personal Narrative

I have faced many challenges while writing my personal narrative. One of the first challenges I encountered while trying to write my narrative was trying to figure out a topic I wanted to write about or something that had impacted my life great enough that I could write four pages on. I know a lot of things impact your life daily but I have not had many things happen to me that had a great impact and actually changed my views on life. Once deciding on my topic, the next problem was finding the time to sit down a write a four page narrative. In the past week, I have had two midterms and multiple quizzes. I have had to get organized and manage my time to write this paper and study for all my other courses. Out of all my challenges I have ran into, the most difficult challenge would have to be that I really just don’t like writing papers. I feel like it is one of my biggest weaknesses, therefore, I tend to put off writing papers. Also I am writing my paper on my Grandmother who has Alzheimer’s disease. It is difficult to write and explain about her situation but still make the paper about me. I start to write about my Grandmother and then realize I have completely turned the paper into about her instead of me. To fix this problem, when I am writing my paper I continuously ask myself “Is this about me?” and “How did that affect me?” Choosing what is important enough or not to put in the paper was also a challenge. The conclusion paragraph is also tough for me too. I feel like it is never long enough and I don’t have enough information in it. There has not really been anything easy to me about writing this paper. The only easy thing I can say was it was a narrative so it was about me. And who knows you better than yourself? I am glad I got through all my challenges of writing this paper and I hope everybody enjoys reading it!
