8/29 Week 1

After Reading Lopate’s The Art of The Personal Essay, I have a few goals in mind while taking WRT303. Self discovery and honesty are two topics that I find particularly interesting. It requires reflection and earnestness of the truth. They say there are two sides to every story, or more depending on how many are involved I guess, but sadly my reflections will consist primarily of my side. How will my writing be “honest” then? Lopate also introduces a type of writing to me, one that I am not used to writing–conversational. The only times I write are usually for a class assignment. The professors require that it be professionally written, and by that I mean academically, educationally, and without “I”. I think it will be fun to explore this other side of the essay. Lopate talks about how many personal essayist often contradict public opinion. I am not sure if I have anything to disagree about. As I am racking my brain, I am worried that I will not have anything to say.
