Hello! Here is another topic you might pursue (when you’re not working on your Mockingbird essay, of course).
What are five meaningful/important moments or sights that you observe in a typical day?
Consider what you see each morning on your way to school; your daily interactions with family, friends, and teachers; behaviors you observe in others; the places where you spend your time; and all your favorite things.
You might write a narrative in which you show your appreciation for these five moments in your day. Or you might write a list in which each entry is a rich, descriptive paragraph. There’s no need to rank the five moments you choose—they’re all important!
Perhaps your goal is to make your reader/listener (!) really feel as though he/she is witnessing each of these five moments. Write strong sentences that help you achieve this goal! You may also choose to write an introduction or closing to accompany your list of five moments.
PS: Notice the punctuation I used in the above list. Because some of the entries in the list include commas, I’ve separated each distinct entry using a semi-colon. Did you know that this is another use of the semicolon?
