Drawback of Writing a Personal Essay

Recently, it has become apparent that writing a personal essay is not as easy as originally thought. Part of the problem is something known as vulnerability. Sometimes this is good, other times it is not.

Many times, when authors discuss their book writing project, the common thread mentioned is the personalization factor. Can this be overcome? If so, how? Personally, I don’t think it can – or should – be totally overcome. Every life, hopefully, has lessons that are learned and can be shared with others. Plus, what would a personal essay be without being ‘personal’?

How much is the author willing to have put into print? If negative events occur, how are they worded to keep the readers attention? These are just a couple of questions that need to be answered.

The benefit of being a good creative writer is having a grasp on word usage. This comes into play, especially well, while writing a book about one’s life. It’s just a matter of working at it. Keep playing with the words, the right ones will come along to describe event’s clearly and informatively.

Writing a personal essay makes the author vulnerable and exposed. It’s a different kind of feeling.
