A personal essay is usually based on personal experience through which you have grown or changed. Unlike formal writing, a personal essay does not have to prove anything. Here are some elements of personal essay: Central theme This is the main point or idea behind the narrative. The narrative may be about a unique event, but the theme is a universal truth to which anyone can relate that informs the narrative. Epiphany An epiphany is a moment of sudden realization or awareness of the truth. An “aha!” moment in the essay. A personal narrative may contain multiple epiphanies in varying degrees. Suspense Try to write in a way that keeps your reader wanting to know what will happen next. If your readers already know how everything is going to turn out in the first paragraph, why should they continue? Climax As with fiction, a personal narrative works towards a climactic event, a turning point, or moment of action to which the narrative builds. This is the highest point of tension in an essay. Sometimes the climax can also result in a moment of epiphany. Self-honesty Effective personal essays will reveal moments of vulnerability or weakness. Honesty is key, even if that honesty is revealing or a little hard to admit. Remember you’re in charge of how much you reveal, and you should not violate another person’s privacy by revealing sensitive information about him or her. Description Create the sensory images and emotions of your experience so that your reader knows…

APA style uses headings to help organize papers. The headings indicate the topic of a section. Most papers only use one or two levels, but more complicated papers can use up to five levels. How many levels you use dictates the format of your headings. Subheadings must have at least one other subheading at the same level. The essay heading does not count as a level. The essay heading is centered and uses upper and lower case. It is not bold or italicized or in a larger font. Sample essay heading using three levels of division: My Bicycle Trip to Pennsylvania (title) The paper begins with an introductory paragraph, which does not need the label “Introduction.” It should inform the reader of the paper’s main objective. Preparing for the Trip (level 1, centered, bold, upper/lowercase) There were many steps I should have taken to prepare for my bicycle trip, but back in 1979 I was a free spirit and pretty much just set off on my adventure. This section will explore ways in which I was successful in preparation, as well as indicating some ways I wish I had prepared better. The subsections will go into detail. Routing the Trip (level 2, flush left,bold, upper/lowercase) This section could go on for several paragraphs, but because this is an incomplete paper, it is only two sentences. Note there is no blank line between chapter headings. Maps are helpful. (level 3, indented, bold, italicized, only first word is capitalized, ends with a…
