When someone reads your essay, they shouldn’t just be reading your words, they should also be feeling them. The mark of every great writer is their ability to evoke emotion from the reader. Every word you use and every sentence you compose should convey some type of feeling.
How to Infuse Passion Into Your Essay
- Choose a topic that you’re actually excited about.
- Use strong adjectives to describe how you feel.
- Avoid using cliches or overused expressions.
Whether it’s happiness, sadness, regret, or pride, emotions help your reader connect with you on a personal level. The more passionate you are about describing your experience, the more entertaining it will be to read your essay!
