Ashley Larsen
When I wrote my personal narrative, I started with the introduction and kept writing until I was finished. I knew exactly what I wanted to say and knew exactly how to express the emotions I was feeling at the time. It was easy for me to put my thoughts onto the paper and I didn't want to stop until I was completely done and proud of what I had written. I did have a few different drafts where the wording of certain sentences had changed but overall the multiple drafts were fairly similar. I reviewed my paper over and over, had peers review it, and also had my parents and professor look at it as well. This paper was very important to me as it was very personal and gave me the opportunity to express my feelings and pain that I couldn't necessarily express at that time.
After finally submitting my paper, I am honestly most proud of how well I got the pain across to the audience and I felt they could truly feel and experience what I was going through. I was also glad that I felt the readers could also see how important my grandma was to me. I was happy and proud of myself for being able to write about the situation and for others to see how positive things can come out of such a negative situation.
I am not really apprehensive about anything in my paper, just hoping I did well enough and had enough detail to get a good grade! I was happy with what I wrote and was pleased with the paper itself and how I wrote it. Also, the peers that read my paper thought it was a really good paper overall and written well so that helps boost my confidence in the paper a little bit! My parents also thought it was written well and thought it showed a lot of ďpassionĒ, but they also are bias because they are my parents.
I really enjoyed writing this paper, despite the fact that it was a difficult topic that I chose. I chose it, however, because I knew the feelings would come right out and I wouldn't feel myself struggling to find words. I was proud of the piece I came up with and hope the readers feel the connection and understand how my grandmaís death truly did impact me and shape my life for the better.
