Before I start my own idea, I wanted to piggyback off of Annmarie’s post about autobiographies. I never have understood the difference between an autobiography and a memoir. Aren’t they both just collections of memories about your life? Why would anyone write an autobiography and not a memoir?
I wanted to talk about the concept of the word “strong.” Teachers always tell you to write “strong,” argumentative essays but what does that mean? In my opinion, when people say they wrote something strong it really means close-minded. It means not considering other opinions or options and staying with your own. It means trying to convince your audience that it’s your way or the highway.
