Personal Narrative

Paper 1: Personal Narrative

Above, is the final draft to my personal narrative about my experiences and observations with dipping and chewing tobacco. The process to writing this paper was relatively simple, all I had to do was basically recall past events that happened a few years ago and recall how I felt about them when they happened. It was a little bit difficult remembering every little detail about the events I wrote about, but I eventually remembered everything. When you gave the prompt of “Write about one belief that you have and the experience behind that certain belief”, it took me a while to figure out what I was going to write about, but once I figured out my topic, it was smooth sailing from there. I wanted to write about something that had a large impact on my life, as well as the lives of others. I feel like my life was a lot less impacted than the people who were actually developing mouth cancer as a result of dipping and chewing, but the experience still had a big influence on my life.

The changes I made to the final draft compared to the third draft were small, but important. I tried to use more imagery and appeal to the senses more in the final draft compared to the third draft. Also, I clarified and explained the differences as well as the similarities between dipping and chewing, which were not clarified in the third draft. Another thing I did was include more examples of why tobacco can be dangerous and the many harms it can do to your body. Finally, one last thing I did in my final draft that I did not do in my third draft was INDENT. I hope you enjoy my personal narrative about my experiences with dipping and chewing tobacco.
