Step Up To Writing


How do i choose my person to describe

  • Someone from my past that will go into the future

  • Family, friends, teachers, coaches

  • Someone interesting: engage the reader/ enjoy my writing

How do I choose my person to describe?


Quotation introductions

  • Introduction Example 1:

    • When I was young, my mother always used to say, “get A’s and hundreds!” This shows her value for education and knowledge. My mother is a reader at heart, and she emphasized to me how important reading was. My mother is someone who I value dearly, and her influence on me will help to form my future endeavors.

Quotation introductions1

  • Introduction Example 2

    • The sixteenth century English philosopher and writer, Sir Francis Bacon, said, “knowledge is power.” This idea reminds me of someone I know closely: my mom. I respect her as a person. She has affected my past, and will affect my future.
