QUESTION
I have to write a personal narrative for my college writing class.?
I have to write a personal narrative essay for my college writing class and it has to be about a positive or negative experience in our life and I have no idea what to write about. Any ideas? I’ve heard that I should write about the fact that I’m having writer’s block but I do not want to do that. Any other suggestions or helpful hints?

ANSWER
Well. . . what positive and negative experiences went on in your life? Maybe make some stuff up if there’s not enough or if some things are too personal.

Some tips for dealing with writer’s block:

– Take a break from what you’re doing and put it out of your mind. Staring at the computer screen or piece of paper doesn’t help at all.

– Walk outside, and go on streets you normally wouldn’t if possible. Exercise helps to clear mind and even give some perspective especially if its outside.

– You need to not worry about failing, and realize most people aren’t very original in their writings.

– Get the main ideas down before touching it up. Writer’s block often times is a result of feeling overwhelmed by the task. Its fine if your article or story isn’t good because you can alter it later on to make it better.

This is a short guide to overcoming writer’s block:
