New Year New You Writing Piece

Our next writing piece is to write about a goal you have for yourself this year.

Using the questionnaire you filled out last time, put together a writing piece about your your goal for 2021.

How to organize your writing:

Introduction: Begin with a story that shows what and why you want to change. (This is an effective lead, which shows your motivation and gets the reader interested).

Body 1: State your goal and your reasons for wanting to achieve it. Think big picture.

Body 2: Break your goal down into smaller steps that you can measure. Think daily or weekly.

Body 3: How will you keep on track? Who is involved? When? Where?

Conclusion: Explain how you will feel when you accomplish the goal. What will you do if you fall off track? What’s next? (Looking towards the future is often a great way to end a piece of writing).

Here are some decent example pieces. Read them for ideas on how to complete the piece.

Minimum word requirement: 250
