Chapter 6: Coming Alive
DA GUD
Use anecdotes to spice up your essay
as an introduction and takeoff point
as a final note
as a detail in the body
as a big story that shapes the whole
Keep it short but vivid
Use your sensory details, show don't tell
Remember: Verbs and nouns make strong writing, adjectives just help
Think metaphorically
"The leaves beckoned in the wind"
Note: "College essays require a good dose of medium-high-level-bs"
Da Bad
Don't use too many adjectives in your essay.
