Telling Your Story
Updated: Apr 7
Only you know the colors, the mood, the emotion, and the "why" in your tale.
Before committing to college essay topics, get back in touch with who you are as a person. You know, the multidimensional being with a unique past, present and future.
College Essay Ink’s Six-Step Guide leads you through a process of self-reflection before you delve into the nitty-gritty of essays. The first step is about connecting to your writer’s voice.
So go ahead – close the link to the thesaurus and trust the words, phrases and sentence fragments that are natural to you.
As details of your memory, ideas and feelings surface, describe the images that come alive in your mind. Images are a powerful way to connect to your story. They help us see what you see, experience, and imagine.
Write them down, type them out, or record them on a phone. Notice what happens when you take dictation from the creative voice within.
