Reflective EssaySeptember 1st, 2011
Everything you write involves you, your reader and the world around you both. If the first element is the most important, if you are writing chiefly about yourself and your own experience, your aim is self-expression. You seek not so much to affect the reader or to explain the outside world as to express your personal thoughts, feelings and experiences. This category includes personal narrative and recollection as well as essays in introspection (for example, a reflective essay).
