Write an Exploratory Essay.

Write a 500 word essay.

Prompt: “Writing for Life” Scenario 3, page 118. An exploration in a letter to a friend.

Think of something you firmly believe in. You might want to discuss your views on raising children, supporting aging parents, choosing a simpler lifestyle, discovering some important truth about yourself, or some other quality or belief that makes you who you are. (Because religious beliefs are so personal, you may want to select a strongly held opinion that does not involve your religion)

Writing assignment: In a sentence or two, write something you believe in strongly. Now explore the basis for your belief. Consider what in your background, education, history, family, friendships, upbringing, and work experience has helped you come to the conclusions you have reached about the topic. Why do you believe what you do? Put your text into the form of a letter to a good friend.

You must choose the essay option I have provided for this assignment. If you submit an essay that does not respond to one of the prompts, your essay will not be accepted as an appropriate response to this writing assignment; instead, you will be asked to write another essay that does respond to the prompt you were assigned.
