17.1 From Personal to Public Writing: Your Writing: Personal Writing Review

The "Writing" segments that introduce the chapters of Sentence Sense contain a baker's dozen short topics for writing from personal experience:

Personal writing of this sort forms the basis of journals, letters to friends, memoirs, meditations, autobiographies, and (with lots of transforming craft) fiction and poetry. It can also help you explore your thoughts and provide an anchor for more general ideas and longer essays. Look up these writing assignments and keep your compositions in a folder so that you can build on what you have done so far.
