Hey, ESE! Want the key to a perfect personal narrative ESSAY!?

 Writing Tip of the Day: The perfect plan for a personal narrative essay in four hours:

Spend about ONE hour on planning before and editing after.
Write about ONE place!
Write about ONE developed/engaging real or realistic event
from your past that responds to the prompt.
Have ONE short but effective ending/extension.
1+1+1+1 = 4

In Texas here are some numbers to think about: 
4th graders have 4 hours each day to write one essay and answer 14 revising/editing questions......not including field test questions.
7th graders have 4 hours on the 1st day to write one essay and answer 40 revising/editing questions, and 4 hours on the 2nd day to write two essays
