Writing about Personal Experience


Writing a Personal Experience Essay

Pre-writing

Choose one experience from your life that is interesting enough to be told.

Introduction

Think of an introduction that will make the reader eager to know more about the experience.

Body

Use simple past or past continuous tense. If something happened previous to the personal experience, use past perfect.

Write down some quick notes about the experience.

Don’t worry about grammar. Take five minutes at the end to proofread your essay.

Remember every detail and try to visualize it.

  • Your feelings
  • Your thoughts
  • Objects around you (their shape, color, size, …)
  • The smell
  • The taste
  • Actions

Include the setting: place, time. (Give specific details about the place and the time.)

Tell the events:

  • in chronological order
  • or using a flash back technique (depicting / recalling a set of events that occurred before the scenes immediately proceeding)

Conclusion

Conclude by telling what you learned from the experience.

Post writing

Edit your essay.
