Next week, we will begin writing the Personal Essay. This essay will be something you use to help you reach your future goals, be they college and scholarships, or trade school and work.
Regardless of where you plan to go, you will need writing to help you get there.

The pitfalls described in the article are the same ones I often see in the Personal Essay, so keep them in mind as you write, and as you go out into the world!
