1. The First Tip. Be Sincere
while Writing an Autobiographical essay!
To write a good autobiographical essay, you have to be on your own accord. If you write your real thoughts and emotions, you will kill two birds with one stone.
1. The first stone is that it will be much easier for you to write about your own real feelings.
2. The second stone is that it will be much more interesting and pleasant for your potential readers to read your sincere story.
2. The Second Tip. Attract Your Potential Reader’s Attention with an Unusual Introduction, as You Write an Autobiographical Essay!
Avoid banal phrases of starting an autobiographical essay, such as “My name is …', “I was born in …', “My parents are …' and so on.
1. The First Variant of Starting Your Autobiographical Essay
For example, you may start your autobiographical essay from this: “Everyone knows me as the best and the first guy in everything what I do, but inwardly I feel myself as an unprotected little boy…'.
2. The Second Variant of Starting Your Autobiographical Essay
If your situation is diametrically opposed to the previous one, you may write the following: “Nobody knows me as a leader. However, there were several situations in my life where I proved to be a leader. Let me share my story with you…'.
3. The Third Tip. Make a Creative Body of Your Autobiographical Essay!
It is not obligatory to write a autobiographical essay in the chronological order. You may start from the mid (or from the end) of your story. Create unexpected transitions in your autobiographical essay.
1. The First Variant of the Transition from the Introduction Paragraph to the Body Paragraphs
Suppose you have started your autobiographical essay with the words that there are some moments in your life when you feel yourself like a little boy. After that, you may tell a story how the elder boys put the hedgehog in your schoolbag by stealth. Describe your own feelings at that moment:
“I was confused and embarrassed. On the one hand, I knew that my parents would punish me for the bringing this hedgehog at home. On the other hand, it was cruel to throw this unprotected little creature away. I felt myself like this unfortunate hedgehog…'
2. The Second Variant of the Transition from the Introduction Paragraph to the Body Paragraphs
In the case if you have started your autobiographical essay with the words that “Nobody knows me as a leader. However, there were several situations in my life where I proved to be a leader. Let me share my story with you…', you may also tell the same story about a hedgehog.
However, you have to demonstrate that you had other emotions at that moment:
“It was without saying, that I brought the little hedgehog at home. Of course, I was often afraid of being punished by my strict parents, but not at that moment. When I saw this unprotected little creature which hid the nose under its prickles, I understood that I stronger than this hedgehog and it was my must to save its life…'
4. The Fourth Tip. Don’t Disappoint Your Imaginary Readers with a Boring Conclusion!
Try to make a surprising (the word “surprising' doesn’t mean “not logical') conclusion for your potential readers.
For instance, you can make the didactic conclusion of your autobiographical essay. Say that when your younger brother was born, you were already a well-experienced nurse, as you had treated and fed your little hedgehog.
You may write the following “From time to time I am angry with my brother, but then I associate him with the unprotected little hedgehog. Thus, I relent to him'.
P.S. Good luck in writing an autobiographical essay!
