I've urged you before to practice the essay, and I'll do it again this week: A well-written essay is our favorite form of writing. Over on this site's sister blog, The Eloquent Woman, I've just written a post about a moving "This I Believe" essay on National Public Radio, and this ongoing contest offers a series of essay writing tips you can use to improve your own essays. Search the site's essay database to find examples and models. You may find it helpful to follow the rules of the contest, in order to limit your word count -- and to make it more personal.
