Write a nonfiction essay in which you explore your relationship with writing. How you organize your essay is up to you, but consider some of these questions: What kind of writing do you usually do? What kind of writing do you enjoy the most? The least? Why? Who were some of your past writing instructors / mentors and how has what they’ve taught you been helpful or not-so-helpful? What’s a style or genre of writing you’ve always wanted to try? When do you write best (i.e. night, early morning, under deadline, etc.)? Where do you write best (in your office, at the library, do you even have a place, etc.)? How do you plan to improve your writing before June 1, 2008? Give this essay at least fifteen minutes of your time.
Write it up and see what happens.
