14 Experience Essay Freewrite #2

The idea of freewriting is to simply write without stopping to edit or structure your composition. I would ask that you follow this same logic in creating your freewrite here. I am going to post two prompts and I would like you to write to one of them. Try to disregard (or move past) any spelling, grammar, and/or mechanical issues when writing a freewrite. You also need not paragraph or structure this. Just simply write and keep writing. It’s bound to have some of these same issues, but you might be surprised how your ideas flow more easily and any freewrites you do are designed to help you potentially find a topic for the essay unit. That said, please write (over a 10 minute period) to one of the following:

  1. Think back to a time when the world seemed to overwhelm you. Perhaps it was a time when everything seemed to be going wrong at once. What were the circumstances? How did you resolve it or is it still “unfinished business”?
  2. Talk about your journey to this college or our online campus. How did you end up at this college, of the places you could have gone?  What was it like when you first arrived on campus or online? What is it like now? Do you regret your decision or are you happy with the choice you made? Why?
